Summer Retail Financial Services Intern (Former Employee) – Deerfield, IL – June 28, 2017
Throughout this experience I have learned how to assess a client's personal finances through their Morgan Stanley profile and the benchmarks we compared them to (S&P500, MSCI World, etc.). Additionally I used my excel skills to help the team with 401K termination dates, Global large cap earnings estimates and much more. Everyday I was learning and it shaped what I wanted to be heavily. The culture was amazing. We were one big family and were able to take risks and be aggressive with our own ideas.

Regional Risk and Service Administrator (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – June 21, 2017
MS is great at developing talent, I am an example of this and also took part in the process of developing my peers. The company culture is great, not sure if it's because I'm now located in the South vs NYC, but I enjoy their work/life balance.
Morgan Stanley offers a very welcoming environment consisting of a friendly, collaborative staff. Together we are productive and energetic. We can go from being immersed in our work one minute to joking around the next.
Great family atmosphere and meeting clients and assisting them with their financial needs.
Senior Service Associate and Lead Receptionist (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – June 18, 2017
Spending time with your work family is a meaningful feeling. Assisting the Business Service Manager in all operational functions and supporting services on a daily basis. The atmosphere of the office is a very happy place and it is a great feeling to be apart of the team.
Intern (Former Employee) – Wellesley Hills, MA – June 16, 2017
A typical day at work included filing and labeling old client files into better organized systems, which entailed learning what all the files meant (for example, the difference between a 401k and a 529). If there was more urgent business, including birthday cards to address, affiliated companies to call and check in with, or client information to update on the computer, I would perform those tasks when given to me. While the hardest part of the job was the endless files that were physically a mess and, many times, filled with information that was unnecessary, the warm environment of my coworkers, with their kindness and jokes, made every second of my work fun and entertaining.

Paralegal/ Junior Analyst (Current Employee) – New York, NY – June 16, 2017
A typical day working for Legal and Compliance would start off with going over important documents and contracts that is pivotal to Morgan Stanley. The department is very professional where meetings take place often to go over progress and operations to keep employees updated and informed. Friendly culture from employees where you really have freedom to get the task done in your own professional workspace. Morgan Stanley employees have their own cafeteria, with many choices of food to choose from and great people who prepare/serve the food out for us.
Free coffee/tea, free lunches on certain occassions, birthday cupcakes
Intern (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – June 15, 2017
I was very privileged to have the opportunity to work here. There is a reason why Morgan Stanley is one of the best investment banks in the world. All of the advisers and analysts are professional and willing to develop the assistants.
Valuation Review Group Associate (Current Employee) – New York, NY – June 13, 2017
Typical day is to go into work, sit at my computer and work independently (potentially reach out to our counterpart abroad) or use the Bloomberg terminal to do research, attend some meetings, and then go home.
ISDA Negotiator (Former Employee) – New York, NY – June 13, 2017
The people are not just intelligent (the norm for Wall Street), but grounded and kind-hearted, as a rule. The company culture is excellent and people really value the "Always give back" (one of the four core values on the sign in the lobby). They actually live what's in the manual. That said, the hours and pressure are fairly high (it is a top investment bank) to some people, but I enjoyed my time there immensely and would definitely return on a project or permanently.
