    I worked at Morgan Stanley full-time

    Pros

    Great people, good familial culture, plenty of opportunity to take on new challenges.

    Cons

    Senior management can be disconnected with the people down in the trenches. This is fairly standard at a large corporation, but it is a shame since it is really the only thing holding this place back from being a dream organization.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on developing mid level managers and making sure junior talent is engaged.
