    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Morgan Stanley full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Growth is fast track for grads. For grads criteria is fixed. So most of the grads with 7 years of experience are promoted to VP

    Cons

    This is not applicable for lateral hire. As result there is Hugh disparity and divide in pay and designation between the two. People above 10 years of experience is at manager post. So it is long battle to get prompted. Moreover promotion is less to do with work but more to do with how many know you outside of your to team to senior level to vote for you. So make your has visibility.

    Advice to Management

    Need a change management who are there with for ages...Need more workforce hired at senior leadership from outside Morgan Stanley to bridge this gap

    Pros

    Location is convenient for some.

    Cons

    Politics is all there is.
    India teams are not empowered.
    Service company culture.
    Leave policy only on papers
    People are denied paternity leaves.
    Poor team culture, combating with your peers is encouraged.
    Servival of the worst culture- the worse a team player you are, the higher you grow.
    Insecurity- everyone is afraid of loosing their job
    Hence business delivery and quality work takes a backseat, personal agenda and politics prevails.
    Technically backward
    People are promised promotions to get longer hours and later denied stating stupid reasons like 'you cracked that joke in that dinner'
    At senior level Tech contribution is not recognised, only managerial work is.
    Not good to join at a senior level
    Too many highly paid consultants around the globe, perms are always at a backseat.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce corporate corruption.
