A good place to work

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
It's an excellent environment for both professional and personal growth, offering valuable learning opportunities. However, at times, the workload can be substantial due to the fast-paced nature of the work environment.

Very smart people work here. Plenty of opportunities to learn.

It’s a hybrid work environment with 2-3 days from office. Management is very supportive and promotes learning new skills. There are lots of trainings always happening and anyone can join them.


Good work life balance, surrounded by smart people, plenty of opportunities to grow your career.


Slow in adopting latest technologies.

Average place to work

"Just a place to collect your pay check" - this is a pretty good summary of the work environment.Pay is average, work-life balance is good, very little career growth. No budget for any fun events.

It’s a good place to learn about the financial industry. Put in 3-5 years and get out.

What is the best part of working at the company?This used to be a good place to work. The so called ‘culture’ they force down your throat is long gone. It’s just another place to collect a pay check now. Put in your 5 years and get out. What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Always living with the annual and sometimes semi-annual layoffs. Way too much stress and worry for what is an average job at best. What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Not great. Very little in the way of team building and most people still don’t come to the office What is a typical day like for you at the company?Boredom. Outdated tools, old infrastructure, and management disconnected from reality or too bossy, rude and micromanaging.

Good culture.. but less chance of a career growth

If you are looking for a good culture, and work/life balance, Morgan Stanley is a good compay to work.However pay increases are minimal (on average). Also getting promoted and career growth is not easy.

A typical US-based company

Overall a good company that offers many opportunities. Well-established. Invested a lot on employees' training. Well-equipped office. Good work-life balance.

Could be improved.

As a facilities coordinator, if you don’t mind doing your job as well as most of everyone else’s job then you will like it. This job is basically being the pack-mule of the company. You get emails from other employees complaining that there are crumbs on their desk and requesting you to clean it. You’re responsible for stocking all the coffee stations. You need to respond to emails promptly, cover the receptionist on their lunch break, and set up meeting rooms all simultaneously. My boundary was reached when they were demanding me to do the Technology department’s job duties. As I was not being paid accordingly to do such tasks nor were they even my responsibility. When I mentioned this to upper management, they simply didn’t care.

Good culture, good people

I love the culture here. I feel like there are a lot of talented people and I can learn a lot from them. Respect, equality and diversity is being practiced, not just a slogan. Managers a few ranks over are still very modest and approachable, which I didn't find in the companies I previously worked for.


- Fair pay - Culture - Colleagues


- Lots of red tape due to regulation - Workload

Do not recommend

Terrible place to work, stay away. Too much red-tape. Very poor culture. For them it's not about getting work done. It's all about shirking responsibilities.

The people are the best part

I had a lovely internship experience thanks to my supportive team and attentive Campus HR Team. We had fun activities like go-karting, valentines day social, tech talks, Tech Expo and Escape room. I got to work with a global team.

be careful of office politics. this is why I want to leave. Fast paced, triple my work load than my previous company. Not a place for you to stay life long

Productive and fun workplace

Work life balance, good pay but very competitive environment. No job security exists. Culture is harsh due to US influence. Make progress quickly if you are skilled.

Corporate culture

Too much competition and accountability that no one actually did anything. Meetings were excessive and unnecessary. Technologies outdated and low productivity.

Horrible management

The biggest problem I've seen that they don't hire talented managers they just prefer to keep loyal people for 20 years. Their methods are so outdated. Most of them just learned about Agile in 2020 and successfully failed with its implementation.
