Training program is Lacking
Financial Advisor - Independent Contractor (Former Employee), Claremont, CADecember 28, 2013
Pros: potential for growth in the right economic environment
Cons: lack of real world training available to be successful
In the current economic environment most investors were inclined to hold there investments rather than trade of diversify. I brought in 2.6 million in new investor assets in 6 months but without trading, revenue generation was not possible. I created a lead generation program which brought in assets but marketing in the industry limits how you can sale – more... investments. – less

Great place to work
Analyst - Fixed Income Derivative OPS Credit Group (Former Employee), Baltimore, MDDecember 17, 2013
My time at Morgan Stanley allowed me to gain some much needed experience in the financial world and learn more about specific products/services. The work environment was very relaxed and everyone was easy to speak with (managers included). Questions were always answered politely and strongly encouraged.

A typical day at work consisted of liaising with – more... multiple counter-parties and teams (FO, MO, BO, Clients etc.) to meet FED mandated deadlines (due to Dodd-Frank regulations). Often these counter-parties and teams would be across multiple time-zones which made time management a must. Our team was very friendly and we would always work together. – less
