Written by Vice President, Regional Retirement Director (Former Employee) from Gaithersburg, MD on December 2, 2013
Morgan Stanley was a quality Employer that afforded me the opportunity to become a quality specialist in the qualified and non-qualified retirement plan marketplace. The majority of my time was on the road meeting with Financial Advisors, Plan Sponsors and Recordkeeper/DCIO partners. There was a substantial amount of turnover in my position (either - more ... through layoffs or counterparts leaving for other job opportunities) which led to very large territories and the challanges which accompanied that size of regions. Sales drove compensation. - less
ProsWorking with some of the best Financial Advisors and Recordkeepers in the business.
ConsLarge territories, ambiguity of job responsibilites, inaccurate sales data
