Mainframe Hardware Engineer in Ashburn, VA
on January 3, 2020
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.

A Financial Advisor at Morgan Stanley essentially runs their own business. You have access to a tremendous array of resources at the firm (typically the best in the business). The training resources, if you're new to the business, are outstanding. However, there are monthly benchmarks which you have to meet.
Registered Client Service Associate in Houston County, TX

Houston Post Oak has a cold, unfriendly atmosphere. Assistants are not appreciated. Management does not care about employees. You work a lot without any appreciation or recognition.
Registered Associate in New York, NY
on May 16, 2022
Politics dominates Morgan Stanley. Mom and dad and connections are by far the single biggest career determinants, production is a close third. If one and two don’t apply be prepared to work your self to death with no support, if you produce then you will get support. You just have to buy your way in.
