Reviews

Suggestions for improvement

  • The upper/regional management could have an idea of the every day that hits it's frontline employees. It's like the upper management is so far removed that they don't understand what it's like talking to real clients.

What I like about the company

They are pretty stable and willing to work with you on progressing your career forward. Each location is different and, but I really do like my immediate supervisors. They're pretty open.

What I dislike about the company

They aren't great to their support staff. The financial advisors are treated pretty well but they don't make it easy for service staff to get accolades or bonuses. The new FAs have little support so they basically work the kids without support and then cut them if they don't make the rigorous program requirements.

Company Culture

Supported community events like West Chester gallery walk in April of 2015.

Freedom to work independently

As a Receptionist at Morgan Stanley I was entrusted with years worth of data and given absolute freedom within the workplace. Altogether I would say that I had nearly absolute autonomy.

Internal Communication

Although it was never communicated to me by the powers that be, why I was released from my position, I received extensive communication from my team on a daily basis.

Office / Work Environment

The work environment is no longer relevant because they relocated.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I don't think that they could be any better than they are right now.

What I like about the company

I was not an employer.

What I dislike about the company

I was not an employer.
