good name, ok benefits, not the best choice if you want to excel in life
Account Manager- Fund Services (Former Employee), Purchase, NYMay 5, 2015
Pros: gym, work life balance
Cons: lack of growth potential
Not much room for growth potential, but good for someone who is looking for work life balance. Seems like a place where accountants go to die. No one will bother you unless, you mess something up pretty bad. On the other side no one will know who you are, even if you spend good few years of your life in this group. The campus has gym, for which you certainly be able to find time.

Worked as a intern
Intern (Current Employee), Long Beach, CAApril 27, 2015
Looks very good on a resume, especially if you plan on working in the financial sector, although, all businesses will see this as a good addition to your resume.

Very professional environment
Intern (Former Employee), Seattle, WAApril 21, 2015
Everyone was nice and helpful.

They were all willing to get to know you and answer any of your questions.

Hardest part was the gorgeous view from the 52 floor.

I spent most of my day making books for advisers to show their clients.

Previously employed by Dean Witter
Processing Support Representative (Former Employee), NYC and Jersey City, NJApril 17, 2015
After the merger of Dean Witter and Morgan Stanley, the Dean Witter Employees were treated as second tier employees. We had separate HR and separate pay scales. In the the past we were the lowest paid, but had job security from your 20's to retirement. After the merger we were not only the lowest paid, but treated as trash. Even with employee outings the MS employees acted as if we were freeloading on the air they were breathing.

Good place to start
Assistant Vice President (Current Employee), New YorkApril 16, 2015
I've spent the first part of my career at Morgan Stanley and while I've been able to move internally and received several promotions, unfortunately, I feel the company values time served more than performance when evaluating its employees.

Financial Advisor (Former Employee), Edison, NJApril 15, 2015
Pros: Good company. Great managers.
Cons: Hard having to work through a bad market
This was an overall good company to work for. The management was great. The market was not good at the time I started working there though. They do invest in the people that work for them.

Great internship to learn about the business
Intern (Current Employee), NJApril 14, 2015
Pros: nice people
Cons: asset minimum quotas difficult to obtain without a large group wealthy friends
I worked for a group that manages 250MM in assets, mostly wealthy individuals, corporations, foundations, and charitable organizations. This is a great business, however starting out on your own as an FAA fresh out of college is a daunting task to many.
