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

    Pros

    Professional working environment.
     Benefit package is good, decent health plan although the premiums can be very expensive if you rarely use it. This is a good health plan for someone who uses it a lot.

    Cons

    Could use more days off. Folks need to understand that when they get hard for operations, they stay in operations. There is no transfer between this and other departments of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Some of the staff would like to move over to the other side, this should be discussed prior to hiring
