"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."

"As an organization I found E*TRADE quiet immature. The business leaders do not have or project a clear objective - too many organizational changes have taken place in 2013, hopefully things will stabilize.The other main observation is E*Trade the company culture does not enable them to change roles easily, or move up. You can stay in the same role for years by being average, you may not get much by being exceptional.The work-family balance is good."

"I've worked for Morgan Stanley since 2006. The overall experience is nice but we receive little to none for compensation. The benefits are great but because of the economy we are not being compensated for the hard work we put in. The company suggests mobility but that takes over a year or so, or sometimes it's hard to move to a different department."

"Overall Morgan Stanley is a good company to work for. They provide opportunities for people to learn hands on while also promoting growth. I do believe the ability to have successful upwards mobility also varies by group as some areas are fast tracked far more frequently than others."

"At Morgan Stanley, I've completed a rigorous training program, developed a robust understanding of the FX product and have been able to establish myself as a high performer and valuable team player - in large part due to the support and resources MS has to offer. I consider my 2+ years of experience at the bulge bracket investment bank a strength."
