People are overworked with false hopes of compensation.
Vice President (Former Employee), New York, NYAugust 5, 2014
Pros: excluding management, people are the best you can ever expect to work with.
Cons: management needs to wake up and place a priority to their employees, if not they will lose the knowledge expertise.
Management is blind to the actual work that is being completed. The tight deadlines are unachievable and as a consequence deliverables are severely impacted.

Great place to work. Very exciting enviroment, fast paced but interesting.
CSA - Client Service Associate (Former Employee), Alexandria, VAJuly 30, 2014
Pros: great location, great staff, great working environment
Morgan Stanley in Alexandria, VA is a great place to work. It is very interesting and inspiring to work with people who have a passion for what they do. They start from scratch sometimes but the room for advancement is phenomenal. A person could start there and literally work their way to the top with enough determination and drive. The managers were – more... very well trained and handled any conflicts promptly and effectively. The most difficult part would have to be the pace but there was a kinetic energy that actually fueled the work so it was not anything impossible. The work was complicated and required you to be on your toes and able to respond in a timely manner but it was very interesting and gratifying to help people achieve their goals and dreams. – less

Pros: the vice president is super nice and is great to network

Everyday we learned different stock market techniques from our Vice President of Global Wealth and then we had workshops that delved into those. We had several side projects in conjunction with our stock market assignments to understand the workings of the economy and the stock market. The hardest part of the job was the late hours after a long day – more... of class. The most enjoyable was learning about the stock market while making new friends! – less
