    Can anyone comment on the culture of Morgan Stanley? Is it a BSD culture or are they (in the context of IBs) more humble?

    kthx

    There are forums for this kind of thing. Wallstreetoasis.com comes to mind. Beware, full of careerist pigs.

    I prefer the term "capitalist swine". It has a nice ring to it.

    Several friends work at/worked at MS. Like most I-banks, the culture varies from group to group. I have heard good things about a group over on Sand Hill Road in CA and I have also heard that the some groups in NYC are a bit more intense/uptight.

    Remember that MS was the original 'white shoe' firm. This carries over into how they behave internally and how they carry themselves. MS does not have a rep for being super-humble. They see Goldman as their main competition. But YMMV.

    Haven't worked there myself, so take my opinions with a big grain of salt.

    BTW, have you recruited yet? You'll figure out a lot through recruiting.

    If you have an offer already, you ought to have a decent sense of the culture/pace/attitude there.
