Worked in MS campus outside of NYC
Associate (Former Employee), Purchase, NYSeptember 9, 2014
Pros: brand name
Cons: terrible location, no teamwork, some bad managers
The area which I worked was growing too fast and the team in place was not experienced enough to handle it. MS gave away the house and promised everything to their clients without realizing that the firm couldn't live up to that promise. People WILL stab you in the back with you in the room...happened too many times to me. If you have no conscience – more... or morals, MS is for you. – less

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), New York, NYSeptember 4, 2014
Pros: health/dental benefits and work-life balance etc.
Cons: long hours
I learned a great deal and worked with a diverse set of individuals. Answering calls and heavy calendaring was a typical day. Compensation could have been better. A lack of decent raises over the past few years was due to the economic downturn as was the case with similar companies in the industry. The company encourages you to incorporate challenges – more... in your career. Overall the work-life balance and benefits was excellent. – less

Pros: excellent benefits, holiday parties and thanksgiving lunchon.
Helped clients and financial advisors resolving issues. It was a great challenge and experience working in this company as well as learned how to manage multitask in a time sensitive situation.

The most enjoyable part of – more... the job was when I could provide clients and financial advisors with my help and when issues got resolved. – less

Great company, poor management, not enough learning experience
Analyst (Current Employee), New York, NYAugust 15, 2014
Morgan Stanley is an outstanding company. However, there is very little learning within the group (mine in particular and we have had a mass exodus),there are few opportunities to move forward within, unless you move externally which can give you a 15-20% raise. Co-workers can be childish and management picks their favorites and promotes them, even – more... though they may not be doing the same amount of work.

As a company, I think there are many opportunities to get a head start, especially for someone out of college or switching careeres. Benefits are good. I think it really depends on which group you are working with as all of them differ substantially. – less
