I worked at Morgan Stanley full-time

Pros

High caliber employees with strong intellects, work ethics, and standards. Global reach and depth of firm is great advantage.
Human resources does a good job of partnering with companies and organizations for community benefits.

Cons

Morale changed after Mack stepped down and Gorman took over. Institutional side does not like the new emphasis on wealth management.
Like any bulge bracket, the company has an up and out culture that grinds many people down. Employees are continually being asked to do more for less in the industry.

Advice to Management

There needs to be a better compensation strategy to attract and maintain talent. No one wants Morgan Stanley stock as party of their package.
