A True Hands On Crash Course in Investment Banking
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

One of the best parts of my internship experience was how closely we were integrated into the team and relied upon during our 10 week program. From Analysts to Managing Directors, all members of our group took an extremely invested interest in teaching us and being there for us to engage with them. In addition to having the assistance of great colleagues and mentors, the training and on-the-job learning was an incredibly rewarding experience and I know that I have several relationships that I will value for the rest of my career.


Downers

I truly enjoyed the experience and would highly recommend the internship program to any student looking for a summer experience where he/she will be given a high level of responsibility at an early stage.


Advice to Potential Interns

One of the themes that I have seen throughout my experience at Morgan Stanley is its dedication to cultivating young talent and adjusting to work closely with colleagues who very much care about your own development was one of the best parts of my summer.


Advice to Management

I highly valued our training program and firm-wide events throughout the summer and feel that they are a great part of the experience as a whole.

While my peers at other firms dreaded going to work every morning, I woke up excited to work with my team every day for the full ten weeks.

People were incredibly helpful and willing to teach and guide, despite large time commitments of their own
Work was challenging and stimulating
Collegial atmosphere and camaraderie among interns and between interns and full-time employees


Downers

It would be difficult to point to anything besides the fact that I couldn't start immediately following the internships completion. Sometimes it was frustrating trying to find a cab in Times Square on a Friday night.


Advice to Potential Interns

While there are other firms with the prestige of Morgan Stanley, I think you will be hard pressed to find a place you will genuinely enjoy working as much as you would at Morgan Stanley. You can't emphasize culture enough when you're considering a place you will spend 70-100 hours per week at.


Advice to Management

The Global Capital Markets program is perfect. I have nothing to add.

A great opportunity to learn and to grow professionally
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

- Mentoring program (both assigned mentors and senior people who took the effort to train interns)


Downers

I cannot think of any.
If we could have more events/ lecture specific to our department (versus the entire division), it would be even better


Advice to Potential Interns

- Be prepared to learn a lot and challenge yourself.
- Be open-minded and versatile
- Take ownership of your assignments no matter how trivial it may seem... because it is not. A great internship is where a junior person learn how to be professional.

Great experience meeting interesting people and working on high profile projects.
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The people and the quality of the projects staffed on as an intern.


Downers

The unpredictability of the hours, but that was expected going in with investment banking.


Advice to Potential Interns

Go through group selection with the people you will be working with in mind. Analysts will be gone by the time you start, focus on the associates and VPs because they will dictate the quality of your full time experience.


Advice to Management

More group wide team building activities would boost morale.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Working at Morgan Stanley is the most professionally and academically stimulating and rewarding way to spend 10-weeks
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Interacting with people of various levels at the firm, creating a final project that will be published by my team


Downers

Like any internship or job, there are stressful times when you make mistakes and do not know how others think about you. The key to these tough times is to learn from your mistakes and move forward.


Advice to Potential Interns

The easiest way to survive your internship is if you truly enjoy the job. Make sure you fully research the firm and job position you are interested in.


Advice to Management

I think Morgan Stanley is the ideal firm to work at.
