"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."
Overall Job Satisfaction:
Are women & men treated equally?
Does the CEO support gender diversity?
One thing Morgan Stanley can improve?
"Improve work-life balance and policies (e.g. flex-time, limit face time)"
Level of Flexibility
"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."
Did you take Maternity leave?
"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."
Would you recommend Morgan Stanley to other 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."
