Featured Review

I worked at Morgan Stanley

Pros

Teamwork is stressed as is a drive for excellence. The environment is great for climbing the steep learning curve in the industry. Everyone is very helpful and approachable

Cons

The hours are tough but that is expected in this industry. Other than that there are very few cons to this position.

Former Employee - Senior Business Analyst

I worked at Bank of America full-time for more than a year

Pros

Super company to work for, great opportunities to get promoted, learn, network.

Cons

Generally focussed on American timescales, so need to be able to work / be flexible for evenings (when European based)

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you do - it's a great place to work.
