Featured Review

Current Employee - Executive Director

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

Pros

Generally better management structure than other investment banks. Strong equity franchise (not so much for fixed income and credit).

Cons

Pay package is just average, and below market in certain departments. Very slow in adopting modern remote working business model.

Advice to Management

Pay package (both cash and profit sharing in shares) and remote working flexibility need to improve ASAP to retain talents in today's competitive labor market.

Current Employee - Senior Associate

I have been working at KPMG full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Stable progression, Strong support for professional development. Recent pay scale increase

Cons

Long hours Office politics High delegation of work if you are competent

Advice to Management

Nil
