Good benefits, bad management
Director (Current Employee), Baltimore, MDMarch 29, 2014
Pros: compensation, benefits, coffee
Cons: long hours, stress, high turnover
Morgan Stanley's Global Loan Servicing business is currently growing, both figuratively in size and in scope for the Loan Syndication business. Many opportunities exist for someone wishing to launch a career. Senior management is disorganized, forcing staff to work long hours in high risk / high turnover positions to ensure daily tasks are completed. – more... Every error is treated as an Incident and requires immediate escalation, including identification of source cause and preventative action plan, within same day period. – less
