May is Mental Health Awareness Month, an important time to reflect on how to better prioritize mental health as the world grapples with a growing crisis since the start of the pandemic. Through the Morgan Stanley Foundation, we seek to address these issues with the help of our distinguished nonprofit partner organizations and initiatives, such as the Alliance of Children’s Mental Health, which is focused on delivering positive, tangible impact on the critical challenges of stress, anxiety and depression in children and youth. “As mental health challenges among children and adolescents are rapidly becoming more pervasive and more urgent, we firmly believe there is not only an opportunity, but an obligation for the private sector to play a critical role in addressing the problem.” shared Joan Steinberg, President of the Morgan Stanley Foundation. Read about the important work of the Alliance and additional mental health offerings available to Morgan Stanley employees and their families.

In honor of Earth Day, Morgan Stanley is proud to reaffirm its commitment to supporting companies and investors who seek to harness the scale of capital markets to help combat climate change while performing well financially and driving sustainability innovation. One such hotbed for innovation is the Kellogg-Morgan Stanley Sustainable Investing Challenge. Now in its 12th year, the Challenge brings together graduate school teams to pitch creative financial solutions that address critical environmental and social issues. This year saw 251 students from 35 countries submit proposals for projects that would impact issues in 29 countries. Of the 16 finalist teams, the graduate students from University of Cambridge took home the winning title with a concept to create a new type of parametric insurance to protect and restore mangrove forests. Congratulations to the winners and to all the innovative finalists! Learn more about the annual Kellogg-Morgan Stanley Sustainable Investing Challenge and other emerging insights on sustainability investing at Morgan Stanley.

"Above average investment bank"

Apr 16, 2022 - Executive Director in New York, NY
Positive Outlook
Disapproves of CEO


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


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.

    Apenas fiz uma parte online, não cheguei a passar por entrevistas de fato com alguma pessoa. O processo é bem automatizado e simples, achei um pouco impessoal e é possível se perder com os e-mails de inscrição. Mas bom processo
