I would advise women to understand their ideal client base and asset under managements. Understanding those two items will help you close the gap of pay inequality. Your production, quality of life, and internal rankings will be based upon those objectives. If I had asked myself those questions and then asked my manager to provide me with the equivalent of a male advisor hired at the same time, I would be much happier than I am now.

Morgan Stanley is a large global firm and it take a long time to get things done. Some of the work-life balance and treatment of women depends on where you are located.

Beware. Awful place for women. They just put a few marketing dollars to places like this site to try to pretend otherwise.

Trilogy Financial Services

Financial Advisor, Finance

At the Woodland Hills office the regional vice president was narcistic, micro manages people and made inappropriate comments to the ladies. Receptionist was encouraged to wear provocative clothing to please all the men at the office. Very often he would take receptionist to very long lunches.
