    I have been working at Morgan Stanley full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Knowledgeable and respectful colleagues, exciting business, competitive compensation, learning supports, mobility program, generous RRSP matching programs and vacation package. Great place to work and to learn about financial products.

    Cons

    Only cons I could think of is fast pace work environment which is pretty normal for this type of business. Promotion is slow.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work culture and promote work life balance. More vacation days after 3 years would be great. Promote internal talent to keep top talent.

    I have been working at Morgan Stanley full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Morgan Stanley is a top notch place of employment. It is refreshing to work for a company that means what it says. We are encouraged to give back to the community and participate in volunteer efforts. We are permitted the time to do so. My boss treats me like an adult, I get my work done and am well respected. I have never been happier at work.

    Cons

    I have to pay for parking.

      I have been working at Morgan Stanley full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      Collegial environment. Very team oriented.

      Cons

      Compensation is low compared to other firms. If your role is not identified as an MD role, you may plateau.

      Current Employee - Client Service Associate 

      I have been working at Morgan Stanley part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Mostly very decent people and a lot of resources available to get the job done.

      Cons

      Financial advisors are given too much leeway and not held to the same rules as other employees. I was made promises when I was hired that were not kept. Disappointing.
