Yet another banking firm

3.0 of 5 stars

March 2018 | FORMER EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Flexible work situations, work from home ... Coworkers fairly nice and helpful.

Downers

Promised off site technology training, never happened even when directly related to job functions. "Who you know" mentality runs the show. My immediate boss was privately buying and selling Real Estate while he was supposed to be working at Morgan, made me team lead so I would feel I was "rewarded", simply did this to allow him more time for his personal ventures. His boss knew all about it, but did nothing to curtail this activity. My salary went unchanged for 10 years. I stayed because the work from home was great.

Advice to Candidates

Do not expect great technology training, everything is Siloed to the point that you only learn what little you touch. Pretty much what you do is to get your boss a promotion, very little pats on back or increase in salaries.

Culture stands above the rest. Consistently from hearing of people that leave other firms to come to Morgan Stanley, or people that have left Morgan Stanley, that our culture is more collaborative and open.
