Morgan Stanley trash compared to Goldman?
I recently verbally accepted an offer for the 2021 Summer analyst position at MS for investment management fixed income (I know this is IB but still) and was very happy since this is my dream job-going into the buy side was more preferable for me and I wanted to learn from a BB. I have also been interviewing for GS but probably will cancel interviews now that I verbally accepted, since I prefer their culture, people, etc. However I spoke to a professor at my school who's been in the industry for years and he said MS is good but only a quarter as good as GS which is in another league. He also said MS focuses too much on retail clients and because of that doesn't build complex strategies to hedge risks etc and they think they are the shit but are actually brainless. Suffice to say I was upset with his comments and don't think they are necessarily true but couldn't ignore them since he does have experience in the industry. Wanted some opinions from people here preferably those who have been in the industry.
