    I worked at Morgan Stanley full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A lot of events made by HR for interns to attend to network, learn about the firm, and happy hours. Projects given to work on the entirety of the summer at present to managers and directors at the end. Great location to walk around during lunch.

    Cons

    Your experience really is dependent on your manager/ team. They could either keep you busy or bored, engaged or disinterested.
    Monthly parking is pricey and not included in pay.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure the management getting interns actually has a plan for the interns before they get to their team so it’s a more standard experience for everyone else
