Morgan Stanley Reviews

Q: What is it like working at Morgan Stanley?

Systems Engineer (Computer Networking / IT):
Above average pay and benefits help to make up for a highly regulated industry that increases the difficulty of designing, implementing, and supporting technical solutions. Being able to work from home is a plus, and I consider everyone I work to be above average in terms of overall attitude, ability, and disposition.
