Wealth Management Internship (Former Employee), Santa Barbara, CAOctober 17, 2014
I was instrumental in working with different financial advisors, portfolio associates and vice presidents. My responsibilities were varied and I was exposed to many aspects of the retail brokerage industry.

I was tasked with the full responsibility of the "Know your client" project required by FINRA in which I had to update all financial and investment – more... details for all existing clients , a very important and overwhelming project in which I had to pull data from all of the existing accounts, and send the requested, required information to our clients for eventual input into their account data.

I was also involved in the marketing aspect of the business in which I was involved in the planning and execution of two seminars we conducted with Jackson National Life Insurance Company, entitled "Retirementology". The seminars were to introduce both existing clients and prospects to Annuities.

The job atmosphere here was great, full of communication, understanding and support from the different co-workers. – less

Stay Away if your smart
VP Financial Advisor (Former Employee), FloridaOctober 16, 2014
Pros: work/life ballace
Cons: about everything else. when you leave they sue you.
The management is profoundly unprofessional. Our territory was rife with scandals both in office and public. If a member of management is talking to you, there is a good chance you are being lied to. The office environment is depressing. If I could change one thing in my life, it would be the regretful decision to work for Morgan Stanley. Good luck – more... if you'd care to go there yourself! – less
