Typical day of work would include printing out financial reports for my supervisor, updating existing financial client data, organizing client portfolios, and mailing out financial reports.
The workplace culture was very professional and friendly. Management was very clear and direct with what they expected of me.
Hardest part of the job had to be getting acquainted with Morgan Stanley's filing system. There were many client portfolios that had to be reorganized and it was difficult navigating through the sheer number of portfolios. Once I figured out what goes where, it was quite easy, just tedious.
I learned what it was like to work in a professional work environment, and what is expected of you. This was my first internship working in the corporate world and it gave me a great glimpse of what that life is like.
