    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Morgan Stanley full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Morgan was competitive at first. offering stellar benefits, generous time off, including the ability to work from home. promises of a career first track and the ability to be premoted and earn more.

    Cons

    Morgan's culture can only be described as the gladiators arena, where you are expected to justify your existence constantly to ancillary managers and vps who have no clue about how a team functions or what is required of the job. technology is poor. don't even bother discussing your career track. there is no loyalty to managers or staff by higher ups. Majority of NE staff have been downsized and replaced by consultants from India or off shored in some other way. no bonuses, paper tiles and promotion. pay became very non competitive while you were always expected to twice as much with half the resources.

    Advice to Management

    understand that your people are your most important asset. and focusing solely on the bottom line in an affront to the hard working staff is not a way to run a company.
