Fast-paced, intellectually stimulating, and challenging introduction to investment banking


Uppers

The best aspects were definitely the people at Morgan Stanley. They were intelligent, friendly, and passionate, but most of all, they were conscious of your and others well-being during the experience.


Downers

I think the toughest part is obviously the hours, but everyone knows that going in. It's hard to go without sleep, but it is also an aspect that bonds the analysts as they share the late nights.


Advice to Potential Interns

Morgan Stanley was the right choice for me because of the awesome people I met in the program. Since you will be spending so much time with them, it is important that you enjoy the people you will be with. Finally, it is also great that Morgan Stanley extends so many offers to its summer interns reducing the competitive environment during the internship experience.


Advice to Management

I think it would be wonderful if the flow of information from the top level down to the analysts was a little more rapid in some cases, but I think that is a problem across the industry.

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.
