I worked at Morgan Stanley full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Solid company with a long history of excellence. A great place for someone to begin their career in one of the world's top financial services. Tremendous technical platform relative to other financial service companies.

Cons

M is one of the strongest financial services companies to exit the recent financial crisis. The company is adapting to changing market and regulatory conditions, challenging the traditional business model. The opportunities for growth and new product and technical innovation is very limited.

    I have been working at Morgan Stanley full-time

    Pros

    Strong firm with good outlook, good compensation (at least for those 'in the club'), great talent.

    Cons

    Poor culture, particularly at the top; too many politics, favoritism, in-fighting; unethical behavior.

    Advice to Management

    Cost cutting focus has had a positive impact on the bottom line but at the expense of employee morale. In an environment where pay is stagnant or shrinking, when softer benefits are also stripped, the strong talent will leave and the lifers become progressively demoralized & non-productive.


  2. "Financial Advisor"
