While Morgan has a great work/life balance culture, they could use a little help in promoting women's careers and compensation.

If you're interested in punching a clock with little encroachment on your personal life and little to no career growth then a Wealth Management non-Financial Advisor role would be a good fit. If you're willing to work hard or extra hours, looking for career growth and development, and you want a firm where you may be able to stay for a decade and establish a career, avoid Morgan Stanley Wealth Management.

    The maternity leave is generous. There are other women in the office that have had all three of their children while working at Morgan Stanley and felt the policy was very fair.

    I am unfamiliar to flexibility within other business lines other than Wealth Management. Unless you are a Financial Advisor within Wealth Management, you have little to no flexibility.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Depending on the job role and area of interest within Morgan Stanley it may be a good fit for some women. Working in a support role within Wealth Management is very difficult if you want career growth, skills development and promotion opportunities. I cannot speak to corporate roles or other business lines. Morgan Stanley does have a generous maternity leave policy and they are working on diversity at a corporate level.

Typical finance bro-culture with very few women in senior leadership. Qualities they look for: type A, dominant, extrovert.

    They don't have any procedure in place for who will take on my clients and neither management has addressed my concerns or emails nor has corporate HR adding a lot of stress

There are basically no women in senior positions and gigantic disparities between male and female pay.

Management is great, very supportive of female advisors. However, the male colleagues are often quite sexist and many will not engage with you like they would a male colleague. Feel very written off, especially after my pregnancy began to show. But on the surface, very supportive in terms of policies, less so in reality.

Good place to work as a junior or mid level employee but there are very few female managing directors and there is a definite boys club mentality that makes it hard to find a sponsor.
