"I work in technology and would highly recommend it, huge variety of roles and styles so there is something for everyone, from deep dive coding to ux, ba and project coordination on a wide range of technologies and functions, and from traditional 5 day weeks to very flexible work setups (e.g. 1 day a week in office, 3 day week) which both men and women take advantage of. Culture is collaborative, and there are a lot of female senior role models. I've been here 10+ years and been very happy."

"Please be careful. While there are some good people in certain groups where it is a healthy work environment, overall Morgan Stanley is toxic. I spent many years there and received good reviews and was one of only a few women promoted. So this is not bitterness, it is based on observation and experience. The place is toxic and abusive."

"I would say that Morgan Stanley "looks good on paper" in the sense that they seem to "talk the talk". They have multiple diversity programs in place. However, the message from the top of the organization doesn't trickle down to individual business units. Women are rarely acknowledged for their contributions or paid fairly, in my opinion."

"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."

"As at many Financial Services companies, women are the minority. Although men seemed to respect their female colleagues, and women are able to be promoted alongside men, there are less women in senior management than men (in the Institutional Equity Division). There is also a much more significant density of women in sales than in trading (currently one women on all of the derivatives trading desks combined). During my internship, I met two pregnant women who were not discontent with the maternity leave policy because they understand that their jobs are market-focused and require face time."

"Extremely sexist place. Groups within the department openly talk about not wanting female analysts on the team. I can count the number of mid-level women on one hand and they don't advance. No senior women to speak of. They are extremely proud of their frat culture and plan to stay that way. The guys are lewd and inappropriate. I don't feel comfortable going to any group social events. Unless you want to play the dumb sorority girl role, there is no place for you."

"I worked here for 4 years and loved it for the first 2 years. It's a male dominated industry/company so be prepared to encounter cut-throat personalities.However, whenever I was looking to advance the regional management teams always found a way to veto it. Although it was a terrible ending, I am happier with my choice to move on. This is a great entry level company and I am thankful for the learning opportunities I had there but unless management is supportive of career advancement, it will not end well."

"Worked there and predecessor firms for more than two decades. Shearson, Smith Barney and Citi were far better for women than MS. The bottom line is what matters at MS and employee morale doesn't appear to be an objective of the senior management team - which by the way has very few women."

"Not a good Company to work for if you want to advance. It is all about the FA's and management cares nothing about anyone else. Very difficult to make decent money for the hard work that you must process each day with no help at all from management. Operations Dept. very small since CSA's now must pretty much do everything including orders for the FA's when they are at hom "working online". Look elsewhere!"

"Think...If you are hired prior to being registered then your salary is quite a bit lower than if you had started as registered, once hired then you just have to work yourself up slowly once you are registered.... to what a registered CSA would be paid starting"

"The company is fine - but when you worked on the business side, it's quite brutal for a woman. Especially one like me that's doing fertility treatments because my boss was completely not supportive. My normal hours were 7am - 6pm. When I was doing IVF, I came to work at 8 and my boss had an issue with that. Had I known how difficult this was, I would have seriously considered getting married early and having kids when I was younger. Oh and don't bother with HR - they work for the company, not for you."

"You can advance if you network; you can do a good job, but if you do not build relationships to draw on, you could be out of luck if objectives change and they need to make changes. Sometimes the "push" to have more women in this industry can almost create an unequal president at times - they have a way to go to make things equal. In the right group though, you will be supported and have opportunity for growth."

"For someone who can really work under pressure, take a high volume of calls and are ok with being stuck on the same position for at least 28 months, it is a good job.They have a lot of expectations and you have to get used to the fast paced environment."
