During my time at Morgan Stanley, I observed some challenges in terms of leadership and the overall strategic direction of the organization I was part of. There seemed to be a lack of clear guidance and a coherent vision, which affected the efficiency and effectiveness of teams. Additionally, While HR plays a crucial role in any organization, I felt that there were issues related to transparency and fairness at Morgan Stanley. In some instances, it appeared that HR was more inclined to protect management rather than addressing employee concerns impartially. I resigned due to the chaos - Unfortunately, although I asked HR and my manager to approve my move to another group due to my role not being a good fit, I had to resign for my own mental health. That is so ashamed a company like Morgan Stanley promoting people that lack good leadership just for the sake of D&I.
I had the opportunity to build valuable friendships and relationships with some truly exceptional individuals across the company.6
