Work & Life Balance


Mainframe Hardware Engineer in Ashburn, VA
on January 3, 2020
Good Work Environment, but say goodbye to your social life
My team at Morgan Stanley was fantastic, probably one of the tightest knit teams that I have ever been a part of. As someone still young and growing in the industry there is a great amount to learn here. As for your social life, plan to never have any weekends free and if you are in the technical field there is just a small team so you will be on call 24/7 some weeks. December is the worst month for all at Morgan because of End of Year financial reviews, at the end of 2019 there was nearly 1500 jobs cut mostly in the technology sector, so never be confident about your position here, it can be cut at any time.
Financial Advisor in Voorhees, NJ
on May 5, 2021
MS is a great firm for those looking to learn the Financial Advisory Business. When I was there they paid a 1 year base salary that was reasonable, as well as paid for and provided resources to prepare for and pass all the licensing exams. The firm was in a period of transition so there was almost no practical job training programs for new FAs, but all of the senior advisors were generally very helpful and some were looking for younger team members to mentor. Still, one must be a self-starter to succeed.

The best technology at work. Best training and excellent people to work with and managerial support. The work environment is relaxed but professional. Opportunities to grow are offered and encouraged by management.
Sales Associate in Manhattan Beach, CA
on April 28, 2021
Never ever work at this company or have anything to do with. Get into prostitution before ever becoming an assistant or work there in any capacity. Its awful.
Registered Associate in Charlotte, NC
on April 27, 2021
Working on a small team of 6 makes me feel valued and important. I help my advisors run the day to day of the business and well as help in financial planning. It seems that they have a clear plan of career progression for me. Sometimes it can be stressful if one member is absent since it is team based but we all cover for each other
