Morgan Stanley experience report

  • 18.Jan 2019
  • Employee

For the large branch office that I work in I don't know anyone that happy that is happy here.

2.72

Teamwork

Staff is encouraged to share experiences

Freedom to work independently

Workloads are heaven for everyone so people have no choice but to work independently

Internal Communication

Management does not communicate to support staff very well

Gender Equality

Not really sure

Career Development

Internal mobility is very difficult

Overall compensation for your work

Poor compensation firm will not pay for the overtime I work

Environmental Friendliness

Only to the extent that recycling containers are available but not used properly

Work-Life Balance

Hard to take days off

Company Image

Great reputation but not the best work environment

Job Security

Stable only b/c it's not a great job and the turnover is high

Handicapped Accessibility

Bathrooms are too small for wheelchair accessability

Workplace Safety

Never had any training to prevent accidents

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better compensation- at least pay people for the overtime they put in. Not allow the Financial Advisors to behave anyway they like and for them to treat and pay the support staff well.

What I like about the company

My coworkers are great...my manager is approachable and willing to help to the extent that he can.

What I dislike about the company

How support staff is expected to manage the personalities of the people that we work for b/c mangent doesn't want to deal with them. Compensation is not good. Unrealistic expectations of what can be accomplished.
