Great Learning pool, warm and friendly work environment
Mutual Fund Senior Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), New York, NYJuly 21, 2014
Pros: free coffee and incentive awards
Cons: outsourcing entire areas offshore
A typical day log into call center or if reconciling uploading your fund descrepancies for the day.
I learned how to utilize a variety of new system applications, also had the capabilities to cross train into new areas.
Overall co-workers were friendly made some life long friends.
Hardest part of the job when working in the call center is the large – more... call volume.
The most enjoyable part was being able to resolve a huge issue for a financial advisor and/or client – less

Opportunity to grow and develop
Finance - Brokerage & Clearing - Team Leader (Current Employee), Budapest, HungaryJuly 14, 2014
Pros: problem resolution, task prioritization, bilingual
Cons: little verbal appreciation
I started at Morgan Stanley in 2008 as an Operations analyst looking after Swiss and UK equity settlements. Working with tight daily deadlines and high pressure my task was to prioritize stock settlements in a market where short selling is commonplace and avoid Exchange fees whenever the firm faced such risk for non-delivery. After participating in – more... the transitioning of this function to Chennai, India, I moved to Finance in 2010 where I got the opportunity to lead the swaps team reconciling brokerage invoices and keeping contact with offices around the globe, both internal and external. I transitioned over the FX reconciliation functions from New York myself, by traveling there and training my team of 3 in Budapest. My role expanded with month end close tasks, accounting and GL postings apart from daily contact keeping with Operations, Trading Assistants and broker contact maintenance. My team leader roles involved looking after a third team, too, safeguarding Commodities invoice payments, where I was in daily contact with traders to resolve issues apart from people management duties. – less

Very good work place
ETL (Informatica) Developer (Current Employee), Chennai, TNJuly 12, 2014
Sine this is my first company, I have learned a lot about how to communicate and behave with Client and mangers. Also I have learned a lot in Informatica and SQL.

Our Manager and Co-workers are more supportive

The hardest part of the job is to deliver few high priority projects in short term. So sometimes used to work more than 11 hours per day.

The – more... enjoyable part of the job is appreciation from Client and manager for successful on-time delivery – less

Great Starting Job, Tough for Real Advancement
Senior Service Representative (Current Employee), South Jordan, UTJuly 7, 2014
Pros: good work environment, good compensation for this type of job.
Cons: no real raises and very hard to get real advancements that pays more.
The section I worked at was the call in Service Center. It is a good pay for a starting job. People call in for help with information, logging on to the site, help with cards and checks as wells as many other general items.

I gained skills and responsibility in the hopes of job security, advancement, and better pay, such as Series 63 and series 7 licencing – more... as well as worked tax questions. There were not any real significant pay raises even after taking on these responsibilities. Any "advancement" to another department was a "lateral move" and didn't really increase pay. The only way to make more funds was to either switch to the night team, as I did, or to work over time, if it ever was available.

Expect it to be a good call center job with all that entails from that. – less

Financial Training Internship (Former Employee), Sacramento, CAJuly 2, 2014
Pros: nice building

If this is how much you can learn from an internship, you should apply now. First of all, training is the most important part in this internship. Learn stocks, market, bonds and SSN.
