    I worked at Morgan Stanley full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This review is strictly for the equities floor; the bank is a big place and I am not familiar with other divisions. Equities, however, is a powerhouse, and more importantly, it is a powerhouse full of (for the most part) good, honest people who do the right thing. I started my career at Morgan Stanley, and it took me moving elsewhere on Wall Street to realize fully what a truly unique place Morgan Stanley equities is.

    Cons

    It's a trading floor, so sometimes can be rough around the edges. And as with any big company, there can be bureaucracy and politics. Days can be long, but that's pretty much expected at a top-tier bank.

    Advice to Management

    Keep promoting people with character and integrity--it shows.
