Company gives employees opportunity to cross-train in other departments
Wealth Management Associate (Former Employee), New York, NYJune 8, 2015
I started working for this company as an Administrative Assistant and quickly transferred into different departments and different job functions and was able to master whatever assignment given to me. As a quick learner and a self starter, on entering the office, I would immediately start working on various reports to ensure trades are settled on contract and accounts are reconciled. I quickly moved on to prepare other reports for management. I have learned that being able to work independently is an asset to management. I assisted my co-workers with their daily assignments to ensure issues are resolved in a timely fashion. The hardest part of my job is having to leave a task for the next day. However the most enjoyable part is being able to train new staff and assist where help is needed. I thoroughly enjoyed the work that I did at Morgan Stanley and the opportunities that I have been given to learn new task. My job was deployed to new regions outside the USA and I am now available to assist any corporation that will give me the opportunity to utilize my skills to help grow their business.

Busy, satisfied customer
Fax/Copier Analyst (Former Employee), New York, NYMay 28, 2015
Pros: Feeling like you were working with your family
Cons: Not being able to find a fax machine or copier
Providing customers with their fax/copier needs, inventory was extremely busy. I've learned to ask for help. Management was very strict and wanted things done a certain way. The coworkers that I worked with were all down to earth and very family oriented. The hardest part of my job was doing inventory where I had to go to all the departments and find all the fax/copier machines. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting my work done on a timely manner.
