    I worked at Morgan Stanley full-time

    Pros

    Great vibe. Lots of energy. Communication from management really good. Lots of money to throw things at in terms of projects (unlike a lot of places which are trying to squeeze everything out of nothing!). Well established processes. Really enjoyed working here.

    Cons

    Only negative thing was the meetings near the beginning of the year when the 'culling' happens.

    Advice to Management

    I think they were doing a great job when I was there and continue to do so.
