Financial Training Internship (Former Employee), Sacramento, CAJuly 2, 2014
Pros: nice building
Cons: not really a work
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.

Senior Cashier (Former Employee), Saint Paul, MNJune 24, 2014
Pros: christmas bonuses
Cons: my low wage
If this is in reference to my job at Morgan Stanley- I handled all administrative duties. Took in checks and copied and mailed UPS every day. I worked on a system to do some data entry. I filed files each day. I was the first person clients saw and maintained a professional role. I took in checks. I answered phones. I learned quite a bit since it was – more... my first time working in an investment company. Management was wonderful, I still maintain a friendship with my boss who was head of Operations. The hardest part was learning the investment language which was constantly going on. The job was wonderful. I truly enjoyed working there. Never felt bummed going to work! – less

Operations (Former Employee), Canary Wharf, ENGJune 23, 2014
Great well known company, with good salary and benefits.
As with any financial services company there are regular redundancies and work life balance is limited unless you're a gym user and can go during the day...

Great workplace, awesome ice cream social events
Manager (Former Employee), Purchase, NYJune 18, 2014
Pros: awesome ice cream social events
Cons: department moved to another state
I worked at Morgan Stanley for 8 years. I started off as an Analyst Paralegal in the Levy and Garnishment Unit. I was promoted to Manager two years later in 2007. My Unit was supervised by one attorney. Overseeing the Levy and Garnishment Unit came with a lot of risk as well as a voluminous flow of work day to day. Legal correspondence was received – more... from the Internal Revenue Service, various state tax departments, child support enforcement units and
Unified Court Systems. Every document received required a timely response. The work also required a great attention to detail. One small detail missed could result in the firm being held liable for non-compliance. My day usually started around 8:30 and at times would not end until about 6-7pm. I interfaced daily with colleagues, internal branches, various departments and agencies. The hardest part of the job for me was knowing when to say when day to day. However, the most enjoyable part was achieving positive results with such a high volume of work and the ice cream social events did not hurt either. My colleagues and I had a great working relationship and for that I am truly thankful. Sadly, my department was moved to Baltimore, Maryland in November, 2013. However, working for Morgan Stanley was a great experience. It taught me so much. I've learned to manage great volumes of work without compromising my ability to pay close attention to detail. My department accomplished managing high volume while maintaining very low risk to the firm. – less

Operation (TPMG) (Former Employee), Brooklyn, NYJune 11, 2014
Pros: was a great balance of work
Working at Morgan Stanley was a great experience. I learned a lot met great people and would have loved working there full time. My time was cut short due to Hurricane Sandy and the office switching locations. But I learned a lot while working there. The management was great and easy going, the job balance was steady so you rarely got swamped. The location – more... was great with Downtown Brooklyn really on the rise. I still have great relationships with the co workers I had while working there. A typical day at work was coming in and doing the treasury report for my supervisor, then at lunch putting together the SPO's and getting them authorized by two levels of management, and then my day to day job was working with up to 30 clients per month making sure the fails charge that we had with them for each month matched up with there's. If they did not then we would go back and forth until it was figured out. – less
