Uppers

Weekly teach-ins as an internship class as well as within my division Respect from upper management and the desire to have a great learning internship process Corporate Culture Constant opportunities to interact with senior management in different divisions


Downers

Honestly, there were no negative aspects of my internship experience. I knew the work was going to be tough but I learned a lot and it was extremely rewarding. The fact that I received a full time offer and accepted made everything worth while and I am looking forward to joining the firm full-time in July of 2013.


Advice to Potential Interns

When making pitch books or any other material, PAY ATTENTION TO DETAL Be very confident around your bosses Look the part, appearance means more than you think You are constantly being observed, always look like you are happy to be in the office and take pride in your work Do not be afraid to ask questions but never ask the same question twice or a question that you can easily find the answer for elsewhere

Opportunity to assume real responsiblity on live, active client engagements.


Uppers

There were many positive aspects of the internship. For one, the team was fantastic and did a great job to fully integrate the interns into the office culture. The firm set up a number of special events for the interns to learn about the all aspects of the business, not just the area in which a particular intern was assigned for the summer. The work given to interns was exciting and mission critical - it was great to have an opportunity to take a leadership role on an active client engagements.


Downers

There was very little not to like.


Advice to Potential Interns

As suggested by the firm, it is a great idea to get to know many people throughout the firm, and to get familiar with what all the groups in the firm do on a day-to-day basis. It can be tempting to focus on the work of your specific group, but overall it is very beneficial to get a broad perspective.

Unparalleled experience, amazing people, and best exit opportunities.


Uppers

The best aspect of the internship were the people that worked in my department who were truly inspiring. The amount of team integration and responsibility was also great.


Downers

The only thing that was tough is the lack of sleep. That said the hours (generally 110-130 per week) I actually quite liked so long as I remembered to go directly to sleep when I needed to.


Advice to Potential Interns

The work/life balance may seem like a daunting situation to deal with however when you're working at an organization that has the caliber of people that Morgan Stanley does, it's hard not to get inthralled with the work and allow yourself to actually enjoy showing up everyday. I know personally it was the best experience of my life.
