Featured Review

Current Employee - Associate

I have been working at Morgan Stanley full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

They are full of brilliant people and share solid values and work ethics.

Cons

Long working hours are frequent

Former Intern - Intern - Hourly

I worked at Waddell & Reed for less than a year

Pros

Great patient of workers in explaining everything you want to ask them about their job and also they're are always willing to help you to accomplish your task.

Cons

There is no salary, not even a compensation for travel expenses, so during this internship you acquire knowledge but you lose money so it's a sort of investment hopefully it will land me a great job.

Advice to Management

talk more to interning guys, they are there to earn from you and they are the future of the financial world so if you care about it give them the time they deserve
