CONS
Poor office culture

Poor management no sense of direction only one priority to get the work done

Management often having a arguments on floor which have a demoralising effects on the team

late stay culture often 2 -3 hours is a norm and dont expect to get paid for the overtime and if you leave on time you have to bear face expressions of the team members incl management

No work life balance.

you will be felt used not encouraged

my worse job experience


Pros

New office

Gym

Cafe

Great experience, fast paced.
The company takes a while to convert you to permanency.

The work is generally challenging but rewarding.

I wouldn'y recommend if you're looking for job security.

Overall I did not enjoy working for Morgan Stanley, main reason being that no one worked as a team but rather against each other, always looking for ways how to throw a colleague under a bus and hiding their own mistakes. Very toxic work environment and unprofessional colleagues. No work/life balance.

Flexible hours, but sometimes very long hours in order to meet business needs. Very good leaders / managers helping you to show your best performance.

Difficult culture
Staff who are based in other locations than the NYC HQ are treated as inferiors

Much work is outsourced to a shared service centre in Eastern Europe - staff not trained well

I really enjoyed my two year assignment at Morgan Stanley. As you would expect from such a large bank, they were very well organised yet had a collaborative approach to management.

Everyone I networked with was an expert in their field and the synergies were very apparent so I felt I got at least as much as I gave.

As a very communicative person I found Morgan Stanley to be very bad at communication particularly in person. Most communication was via email. It would have been much better to have at least a little bit more one on one contact.

It's an ok place to work, but management are a bit chaotic and stuck in their ways. Could do with a refresh and also could do with giving more opportunities for advancement

Working at Morgan Stanley is a challenge - but one people can rise to if they are self-driven. With the majority of the support and back office IT outsourced, you are continually working with individuals that are less than happy with their MSP employer, but enjoy the MS environment and their colleagues.
Up to the time I was recently made redundant, I would have have recommended working here - but job security for IT at MS is in flux at the moment. I hope they steady the ship, as it was a pleasure working the my colleagues there.

I did not work for Morgan Stanley directly, i worked for Capita. This was a horrible place to work, managers were not professional. Only saving grace was the people who were fun and diverse.

Working at MS provides for a lot a benefits such as high salary and career advancement. There are also downsides such as crazy work hours and needing to be on call 24/7.

Management did not take their own responsibility and blamed a new joiner for their lack of management skills!!! The new joiner got fired on the spot. Worst working environment I have ever worked in
