I will bitch all I want, but thanks for your opinion anyway.  If you knew what AGE was like before WS destroyed it, you would express an opinion also.  Whether I choose to stay or go does not limit my right to share my disdain.  Not all of us Jay are self proclaimed sell outs or whores.

bagby sold age after he inflated the productivity of the age brokers. he pulled the wool over dl's eyes, and laughed all the way to the bank.

 
now we have a bunch of whiners that don't produce.  if YOU knew what the firm was like before age infected it.
 
PLEASE LEAVE NOW THAT YOU GOT YOUR BONUSES

Please tell me what has changed for the worse since the AGE merger for the WS guys.  Bagby did not inflate the production #'s, they were posted for all to see monthly.  WS always talked about revenue per broker, not production.  With all the fees, exceptions to the grid, and additional haircuts, I can see how the revenue per broker was much higher.

Mar 18, 2009 10:33 pm

the back office completely collapsed once it moved/combined with age in st louis.  the richmond crew was a bit slow, but the st louis operation is staffed by short bus drop outs.

 
i'm sick of the age longing. it's gone and the firm is dysfunctional since the merger.
 
ws was the best wirehouse, and it's now a shell of it's former self thanks to age
 
Mar 18, 2009 10:40 pm

Thanks to AGE...WS is running the show.  We had competant people in the home office, but they all got moved to a different department where they had no idea what was going on.  This firm has been destroyed by the 14 layers of upper management of WS.

Morgan Stanley should scrap $3 billion bonuses: senator





Wed Mar 18, 2009 7:01am EDT Email | Print | Share | Reprints | Single Page [-] Text [+]

By Jonathan Stempel



NEW YORK (Reuters) - Morgan Stanley (MS.N) should be barred from paying as much as $3 billion to entice brokers to stay when the company and Citigroup Inc (C.N) merge their brokerage operations, U.S. Senator Robert Menendez said.



In a Tuesday letter to U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, Menendez, a New Jersey Democrat, urged the government to use "every legal means available" to stop the payouts as long as Morgan Stanley receives support from taxpayers.



"These payouts constitute misuse of taxpayer money," Menendez wrote. "Some on Wall Street don't understand that they, more than anyone, cannot be permitted to carry on with business as usual. These times demand shared sacrifice."



The senator said the payouts, like bonuses paid at troubled insurer American International Group Inc (AIG.N), are "essentially the same form of extra compensation" and are "not fully necessary to retain executives in this tough financial market."



Morgan Stanley has taken $10 billion and Citigroup $45 billion from the government's Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP).



Christy Pollak, a Morgan Stanley spokeswoman, said each award is "not a bonus," but is a nine-year "forgivable loan" that must be paid back if a broker leaves sooner.



"The program is necessary because our financial advisers are being poached by competitors," Pollak said. The cost is covered by operating revenue of the joint venture and not government TARP money."



About 6,500 of the venture's 20,000 brokers are expected to be eligible for awards, which would be made in 2010 and 2012.



Retention awards are paid to keep brokers from defecting after a company is bought. Financial companies getting taxpayer money are facing heavy pressure from Congress and regulators to limit pay.



"If you want this venture to succeed, then this type of award is necessary," said Danny Sarch, founder of recruiting firm Leitner Sarch Consultants Ltd in White Plains, New York. "If the awards are cut back, they will have dramatically more attrition than they would otherwise. The rest of the industry would have a field day in recruiting."



Under the payout plan, brokers who generate at least $1.75 million in revenue a year may get awards equal to 105 percent of their annual production, a person familiar with the plan said last month. The person was not authorized to publicly discuss details of the plan.



Wells Fargo & Co (WFC.N), which bought Wachovia Corp at the end of 2008, said last month it will not issue retention awards to about 14,600 brokers from Wachovia's brokerage arm, Wachovia Securities.



Morgan Stanley is paying Citigroup $2.7 billion for an initial 51 percent stake in their venture, and may take full control after five years. A closing is expected this summer.



A Treasury Department spokesman was not immediately available for comment.
