QA Manager (Consultant) (Current Employee), New York, NY – January 24, 2013
Pros: work from home
Cons: no cafeteria to take lunch breaks
As a consultant, my duties are to lead an offshore group of 3 - 5 QA Analsts with the QA Validation of the mission-critical applications. In this role, I have to participate or facilitate many conference calls. Management is very supportive and gives me the independence to lead the project freely. My co-workers are cordial and helpful. The hardest part – more... of the job is the communication. With all of the staff being off-site, it is important to ensure communication is clear and concise to ensure the target dates are not missed. The most enjoyable part of the day is when you have completed your tasks on time to ensure the timeline are met. That truly makes my day! – less

Great place to work in but no opportunities to advance
Fraud Risk Analyst (Current Employee), New York, NY – January 13, 2013
A typical work day includes a lot of interactions with your co-workers on solving the tasks at hands but there is also a big emphasis on working independently to come up with your own solutions and input. There is great work-life balance but very little opportunity to advance in the field of fraud. Management does not reward those who go above and beyond – more... their role and consequently there is not a lot of morale to remain loyal and work harder. – less
Wonderful career and learning experience with Morgan Stanley

Working in the Operations section of the firm does not give me the career prospects I desire. The main attraction to me was the prospect of working in the Commodities department. This has given me a good insight into the energy sector, but I do not feel it will match my ambitions to learn more in the future.

I worked at Morgan Stanley for a year and was given a package and told that my position was eliminated while on maternity leave. Every job I applied for since then with the company was an automatic response that my application wasnt accepted.. good luck!
