    Morgan Stanley is not homogenous. What line of business? What type of FO role?

      If you are asking for the team, its risk and pnl. And the role is developer.

    FO is fast moving development, and everyone is above par comparing non FO.

      Associate , TC up to 220k, know someone
      VP, TC up to 325k, know someone
      ED, TC up to 450k, guestimation
      MD, no clue.

      Okay. I am in tech. I think i did not mention that before. Are these numbers for non tech ?

    • Morgan Stanley NeVb45
      For non tech, meaning quant that would be at least 20%more, for trader would be much more

    FO Risk and PNL at MS has excellent reputation. Is it IRD or Equities?

    There are different FO roles - IB, S&T, IM, PE, wealth management. FO experience is definitely good for career progression, esp. with Morgan Stanley brand name but it's competitive.

    Best to start talking to your couterpart first (e.g. if you're supporting the derivatives desk, start there).

    Good luck.
