Unfair practice and management biased, hard working does not guarantee promotion

Ok place to work
Morgan Stanley Technology (Former Employee) –  North AmericaMay 11, 2018
While company has good benefits, the culture of the company has eroded and people are no longer recognized for their accomplishments. Instead the "optics" of a position are what drives recognition.
Pros
Vacation
Cons
No work life balance

Project Manager (Former Employee) –  KowloonDecember 18, 2017
The job was definitely challenging. Multitasking and the juggling of wearing different hats to address the different roles on the job is a must. Overall it is a rewarding work environment.

Nice place with lots of talents
Summer Intern, Sales & Trading (Former Employee) –  Hong KongOctober 18, 2015
Morgan Stanley is a nice place for financial professions to work. Everyone there in the sales and trading team is smart and hardworking. The culture is less aggressive than Goldman but maintains a high level of energy. Competitive compensation package with good career advancement. The work life balance may not be as ideal though.

Could be stressful at times
Senior Consultant (Former Employee) –  Hong KongAugust 17, 2015
could be stressful if you are placed on support role. Should use less vendor services and train own employees. Colleagues are generally quite nice.

Great hiring and therefore skills but poor IT culture - it's a bank!
Equity Derivatives Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Hong Kong, HKISeptember 4, 2014
A great bunch of developers and excellent technical knowledge right up the chain of command. But seemingly no interest in management and no expectation of this within the company culture. This is where investment banking doesn't work with IT. There's too much competition and this precludes team work.
Still, the technology is interesting and so is the business - the frustration is in getting anything really done. It's as if you have to fool the system in order to do so.
I learned a huge amount about structured products and the business rationale for trading them. Improved my knowledge of market risk management. Learned a fair bit of accounting. Learned a number of areas of regulatory aspects to trading.
Generally co-workers were smart and skilled, but competition led some to be difficult to work with - and that was the hardest part of the job.
Getting into technical and business detail on complex products was fascinating and where the different participants could lose themselves in the job and thereby let go of their career anxieties. The result was enjoyable work.
Pros
Interesting technical work and business
Cons
Difficult co-workers
