"I've been working for Morgan Stanley as a senior developer consultant for less than a year. Despite the seldom difficulties maintaining a work-life balance, it provides real professional challenge on a daily basis and allows you to follow a somewhat flexible routine."

"MS is an impressive and well oiled machine, operating worldwide with extreme efficiency. I'm grateful to have had the opportunity to work with true market movers in the institutional equity division. If I had to criticize the firm, I would say that the size of the firm is sometimes its worse enemy; there can be a disconnect between departments and lack of knowledge of the front to back life cycle of client transactions."

"I have worked at Morgan Stanley in the Client Coverage division of Prime Brokerage for the past 3 years. If you're interested in a career in banking, Morgan Stanley is one of the best places to work. Senior management is helpful, and they genuinely want their team to succeed. You will learn a ton at this company."

"Morgan Stanley has an old corporate Wall Street feel. Suits, business cards and corporate ladders are their bread and butter. Perfect if you're looking for potential future earnings, lacking if you value a modern work culture. At times feels outdated with slow computers, internal programs that look from the 90s, and old management."

"I've worked at Morgan Stanley for over 10 years. It is a large, highly-matrixed organization with footprints across the globe. Due to the expansive nature of the Firm's business, there is a multitude of employment experiences. The Firm encourages internal mobility opportunities. However, it's salary offerings are mostly below industry standards."

"Positive: People are smart, kind, and collaborative. Tech division is working to modernize the organization. Need improvement: Org is hierarchical, and change is very slow. HR practices are out of date, offering poor mobility, and losing lots of talent."

Client Services Associate

"I've worked for Morgan Stanley for almost 2 years now, having started while still enrolled at Cal State Long Beach as an Intern. Through the internship program, I was selected to be promoted where I moved up to a role as Client Service Associate where I was selected to start studying to become an advisor at a later date. Currently, I am learning the business where I am constantly receiving coaching and carrying out the daily tasks an advisor would do, minus meetings until I pass all of my Security tests and become a registered Associate. Our team provides a lot of coaching which has not only gotten me prepared for a role as an advisor but also given me the ability to leverage this in other roles if I see fit. The team has given me the tools needed to succeed in the industry and also been a big support for me as I am constantly learning more and more about both the financial and business world."
