Morgan Stanley Reviews
What is it like working at Morgan Stanley?
Information Technology (IT) Manager in New York:
Erratic changes in upper management, favoritism and playing politics instead of focus on business needs. Last fag: playing in agile games using scrum as development tool for regulatory projects with fixed deadline.
"Over Worked and Under Appreciated for SURE."

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.
"Not fulfilling but good benefits."
