    I have been working at Morgan Stanley full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Knowledgeable and respectful colleagues, exciting business, competitive compensation, learning supports, mobility program, generous RRSP matching programs and vacation package. Great place to work and to learn about financial products.

    Cons

    Only cons I could think of is fast pace work environment which is pretty normal for this type of business. Promotion is slow.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work culture and promote work life balance. More vacation days after 3 years would be great. Promote internal talent to keep top talent.
