    Pros

    Morgan Stanley is committed to diversity. They are very supportive of developing new careers. Access to senior management. Will help and encourage you to get involved in locally to "give back." An outstanding brand. A company you are proud to work for.

    Cons

    Not a Con- But setting expectations: New employees (especially those out of college) need to be prepared to work their way up the ladder. If you expect to come in and be treated like a Managing Director with direct access to the CEO, you will be dissapointed (And you are maybe a bit dillusional).

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

  3. "I have spent 10+ years at Morgan Stanley (and I am a woman), climbing the the ladder from an entry level position."

    I have been working at Morgan Stanley full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    This is a meritocracy where talent and harwork are rewarded. There are scores of mobility opportiunities and career development offerings. Diversity is sinceerely embraced here. Nothing feels forced. I especially appreciate their commitment to women and the developement of their careers.

    Cons

    Compensation is fair, but certainly not on a par with Goldman Sachs. But on the plus side, you may actually have a life while working here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.
