“If you’re going to be in space and you want to be competitive, you want to gather the best team,” says Kristine Liwag, head of Aerospace & Defense Equities Research at Morgan Stanley. “And that should be regardless of background or gender.” That led to a partnership with former astronaut Cady Coleman, space engineer Vinita Marwaha Madill, and others to develop a reimagined spacesuit. The Access I, recently unveiled in New York, is a conceptual spacesuit designed to be inclusive of all genders and inspire more women to participate in the space industry. By 2040, the market for the booming global space industry is expected to grow to $1.1 trillion. Yet the current state of the industry and it’s 50+ year history has not translated into increased diversity among those who participate in space missions. One stark example of this exists at the most basic level: the spacesuit. Our goal is to ensure that this burgeoning market opportunity is equally distributed, no matter an individual’s background or gender. Learn more about the Access I prototype and how this idea was brought to life.

"Above average investment bank"

16 Apr 2022 - Executive Director in New York, NY
Positive Outlook
No Opinion 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.

    Started first with a phone screening with HR. Next about 6 rounds of interview- each with a team member. The process was very long and I did not hear back.
