Valuable learning experience and real-life excel modeling
Wealth Management Intern (Former Employee), Manhattan, NYJuly 28, 2015
In the past few years, I became fascinated by the Wealth Management sector and the complexity and thrive it comes with. The possibility to determine financial strategies at an executive level, finding solutions for financing questions, the art of valuation and the excitement of the new-client process truly passionate me. I welcome taking down these challenges with a motivated and ambitious team in a highly pressured environment and deliver high quality results to the clients at the same time. Furthermore, I appreciate the goal-orientated nature of this sector, as well as the wide range of skills set required for the different phases in the Financial Advisor process.

The long track record and specific industry knowledge have led Morgan Stanley to the top position in the investment banking amongst its peers. Not only has Morgan Stanley been setting the standard for the industry since its founding in 1935, the global network and presence in various industries also reflects an ambitious vision and ability to adapt to the constantly changing environment. Exactly these values attract me to Morgan Stanley.

With Ed Wentzheimer as my mentor this past semester's internship, I had the opportunity to have insight into the FA process and gained a deeper understanding of what it means to be a FA here at Morgan Stanley.Not to mention, be part of the high quality work and time a team puts forth to each one of their clients. This work experience not only taught me how to deal with deadlines and clients, but also pushed me to deliver a high level of work ethic for the team.

Engaging
Retirement Specialist (Current Employee), South Jordan, UTJuly 28, 2015
Pros: good knowledge gained
Cons: poor training
Daily I would speak with various branch personal as I aided with general retirement inquiries and account opening procedure or money movement. I also, took calls fro banking, web support, and national new accounts lines of business. Training was ok, but most every rep goes on the phones for any new line of business uncomfortable and unprepared. Call volumes being satisfied seems much more important to upper management than quality of the calls. they have quality professionals to tell you to say things like "what else can I do" but really quality and lacks due to managers not knowing answers to more complex questions and reps often being left without the know how or resources to do their job or really assist branches. Very stressful at times. The plus side is there is not too much micro managing, benefits are nice, and leaving around 4 is a plus.

QA Lead Test Engineer (IT Consultant) (Former Employee), New York, NYJuly 27, 2015
Pros: Interesting work environment
Cons: Work culture changed in the 4+ years I worked there.
As a consultant working for Morgan Stanley in IT divisions, I worked with highly knowledgeable and skilled MS managers and MS employees. In each instance all MS employees are highly knowledgeable in their field and willing to share their knowledge at any moment.

It's okay, but as a temp worker is a bit rough
Operations Control Analyst (Current Employee), Baltimore, MDJuly 19, 2015
Pros: Comfortable atmosphere, very smart and welcoming co-workers, flexible hours
Cons: Compensation not great, you have to pay to ark at this building, Rosina Gourmet sucks
A typical day for me involves sitting in front of the computer processing items in various client accounts. I don't have much interaction with other coworkers because I am limited to communicate due to my status as a temp worker. When I started here I was told that this was a temp to permanent position but my manager doesn't even know when a permanent position will open. So i'm kinda in limbo about that. I don't really feel secure so I have been applying to other positions within the firm. I wish the communication was better though.

Other than that, it is a great atmosphere and the people who work here are fantastic and really smart. So you will learn a whole lot.

The compensation isn't great though. So if you're fresh out of college with little to no experience be prepared to start at around $14-$16.

Oppressive work environment
Client Services (Former Employee), Columbus, OHJuly 14, 2015
Pros: Health Benefits, 401K, vacation
Cons: Management, Job Culture, lack of advancement
The Call Center in Columbus OH is an oppressive work environment which is run by a pack of millennial bullies living out their high school dreams of ultimate power. It is easy for mature adults to ignore the juvenile snickers and comments, but being passed over for advancement because of refusing to play silly games was the last straw.

Pros: awards program
Cons: short lunch
The employees were happy to come to work put in 8 hours worth of work because they were not just an employee but family. They had a good training program. You just go through training without knowing the material.

REGISTERED SALES ASSOCIATE (Former Employee), Mount Laurel, NJJuly 10, 2015
Pros: Great team work.
Cons: Systems were updated but not friendly. Company in process of making adjustments
Very productive, always busy, large client base, great desk partners and worked with a good team.

Problem solving was somewhat time consuming when working with our New York Departments. We were unable to contact the departments directly and urgency was not recognized.

Over all I enjoyed my time at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney
