Why is Morgan Stanley such a bad bank?

Hi everyone, I'm a freshman at a target high school and I'm super duper interested in joining the finance industry. I remember watching movies like Wolf of Wall Street and thinking, "Wow I want to be like that!"

Eventually my dogged persistence and endless passion for buying and selling stocks brought me to this website. I always thought Morgan Stanley was a really good bank but it looks like people have a different opinion here. Whenever someone writes a really bad comment, the reply is always something like "Dumb take. Here's a MS." or "You're a fucking idiot. More MS for you."

Why is Morgan Stanly associated with idiots on this forum? Is it an inside joke or something? Insights?
