    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Morgan Stanley full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It is a good place for survivals that just want to get paid. There was no pros for talented people.

    Cons

    Managers often don't know anything about programming, code quality, or software quality. There is more staff work and getting permission and entitlement than actual coding. There is endless meeting which was complete waste of time as there was no plan. There is so much politics. You just have to know people and build relation. If you are a motivated developer that wants to deliver good work don't go there.
