    I have been working at Morgan Stanley as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Great atmosphere to work in. Lots of teamwork and collaboration. You get to own your projects and have a sense of being part of a larger team.

    Cons

    As with all large companies, there is a certain level of "process" that must be adhered to - especially being a large investment bank.

    I have been working at Morgan Stanley full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Even though the firm is based in New York, we do really important and visible work in the Shanghai office. It's great to know that what we do actually matters.
    The firm culture is great, working hours are long but flexible.
    I'm very happy with my management line, I got strong support from them and good feedback regarding my work. My colleagues are smart, and the firm organizes special events reasonable frequently.

    Cons

    Being so far away from the headquarters is not easy, we have to focus a lot on visibility, to get the same recognition.
    Salaries after a first few years are not so great, and even though firm management is aware of this, they don't seem to take actions to fix this.
    Hours can be long, especially if you have to work with New York or Montreal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should focus on keeping good talent, the current strategy is not going to work.
