    I have been working at Morgan Stanley full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The culture here is great. People help each other. The people I work with and manage are very talented. The company offers very good training opportunities. The projects are also very interesting and provide an opportunity to serve customers at one of the best Wall Street companies. Management is generally open to comment and usually resolves issues (see also cons below). Good place for working parents. But... the lack of a daycare center at the workplace makes it difficult to return from parenting leave.

    Cons

    Sometimes it feels the environment is too fast paced to make strategic investments in systems. As with any big firm, it sometimes feels too slow to embrace change. Work life balance could also be better out here in Asia. Though in theory, everyone gets the flexibility to come in late when they take late calls, but it is rarely a good alternative. Evening time with family can be irreplaceable. An alternative to... neglecting late calls is to lose your career growth options.
