Listen...the search button can be yr friend . I suggest u type 'Morgan Stanley' the read thru. Personally...I have spent hours "researching" threads as old as 2004. I suggest u do the same THEN come back with specific questions.

I did but only found info. about layoffs and training.


My specific questions are:
1) Job security/aware of layoffs, did that include FAs? Why did they occur?
2) Is MS fee based or transaction based
3) Do they sponsor series 7?
4) At this firm, are you confined to a specific zip code or can you venture out into other cities and possibly states?
 
Thanks,

cerpen:

They were, what, three years ago now? Perhaps two, right off the top of my head I can't be sure. Yes, they included underperforming brokers. Do good clean business and you should be just fine.

yes

Yes, others here can tell you more about the training program.

Sounds like some very good interview questions.  Good luck.
