Pros

great teamwork, great place to learn the business from very experienced managers. real thrill of getting the deal done and winning in the market place, thinking like an owner makes a big company feel small. Great brand name and trust that has been built with clients over many years.

Cons

have to work a lot of time. Have to be careful about the managers whom you work for. Also want to make sure you are on a good path to success and have appropriate feedback to determine what those paths are early on.

Advice to Management

its a great place to work but we need to develop talent management programs more thoughtfully

    Pros

    Morgan Stanley is a very large company with alot of advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    I chose to be a financial advisor trainee and the turnover rate for this position is nearly 80% and are basically given 3 months in production to make or brake an almost impossible sales goal. If you know alot of people with money you should have no problem. Managers also treat you as the statistic just to meet hiring goals. Great opportunity for the right person but just don't get to comfortable unless you are a sales superstar.

    Advice to Management

    Make it more possible for someone to succeed as a financial advisor other than 3 months.

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are excellent. Company follows through on their committment to balancing work / life issues with real incentives and suggestions. They also support additional training or education efforts with their wallet - not just lip service.

    Cons

    Everything you might want to do - no matter how large or small - requires you know the policy, and follow it. Need a new PC? New PC arrived with 2 business days. The staff to set it up (must be union person) - 5 weeks. On the plus side - it's usually pretty easy to find the policy - very good search features on intranet.
