Stressful, demanding company with no work/life balance
Director (Former Employee), Fells Point, MD – December 18, 2014
A typical day for me was filled with meetings, conference calls, approving wires & journals, monitoring a staff of 9 to ensure they completed their daily tasks accurately, responding to emails and client complaints.
I learned how to be a better leader and mentor to my subordinates.
Management was unreasonable.
My co-corkers were stressed, but they – more... were great team players.
The hardest part of my job was trying to find the time to complete my required daily tasks during normal work hours.
I did not enjoy anything about working for Morgan Stanley. I developed a headache everyday when I entered the building. – less

Summer Intern (Former Employee), Las Vegas, NV – November 23, 2014
Pros: helpful people in the workplace always willing to answer your questions.
Cons: due to status as an intern, there was a limit as to how much you can contribute
As a financial intern I was able to report to professionals in the industry who have experience dealing with high net individuals. Most of the days involved building vast amounts of spreadsheets that helped communicate key metrics in terms of leverage and other classifications. An eagerness to learn is appreciated here and it leads to harder projects – more... which ultimately builds your own skills. – less

Receptionist (Former Employee), New York, NY – November 15, 2014
A typical day at work was getting in ahead of the crowd and beginning the tasks which were most time sensitive for that day. I enjoyed working with my co-workers. I appreciated the support and contact I had with them. The hardest part of my job was when an unplanned assignment came up and time was short. It would be then that I realized how important – more... it was to plan for the time sensitive tasks for that day. Though, the unplanned assignment was always completed and well done, it became a bigger challenge in a short time frame. The most enjoyable part of my job was working with and meeting other employees from different departments. I enjoyed learning new skills which I could incorporate into my position. – less

Quality Assurance Project management(QAPM) (Former Employee), New York, NY – November 10, 2014
Cons: lack of people level communication from management
Morgan Stanley is a global company. Support teams are located all over the world. The firm has created a technical infrastructure that is solely specific to their environment requiring new employees to undergo specific technical training to be functional in their technical roles. This is a good thing for in the long term for employees but for consultants – more... the time required to be functional in their jobs usually is 6 months or greater and they typically go off contract within a year or more and have not really gained transferable skills to their next assignment. – less
