The world's largest and possibly the most successful Bank; yet they employ flawed management that can't spell and seem to take delight in wasting company money. Ooops inappropriate language alert - Where exactly?
I was my own man left to build a system of control that saved money - loved it.
The uneducated management wasting company money
As a contractor I was at Morgan Stanley for 18 months and hand on heart can say that it is the best company I have ever worked for! Ts ethics for treating its staff with politeness and dignity is a lesson to all other companies! I thoroughly enjoyed my time there and would work there again in an instant without hesitation!!
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 But you will only enjoy these facilities if you have a time if you're constant under pressure no use
No work life balance
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.
Insight Day 2018 - got the chance to learn about women in the workplace and had access to high ranking women who had great experience and knowledge from their fields
Flexible hours, but sometimes very long hours in order to meet business needs. Very good leaders / managers helping you to show your best performance.

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.
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.
Morgan Stanley is an amazing company to work with. Great team in Canary wharf, excellent work - life balance and benefits. Great location, free gym, long but flexible hours
Free gym, flexible hours, good pay and well respected by management
