I am at Etrade since befinning of May. The culture is great: total flexibility, zero micromanagement, open and transparent communication without corporate bs, no pressure, work from home (2 days in the office but that is flexible too). Obviously with MS acquisition changes are coming but no on the culture side for now more on AUM side.

MS is bigger firm and I would definitely expect more opportunities, although it probably comes with bigger competition. I welcome changes of any sort because if you have qualities they bring more opportunities to shine.

ETRADE retains its fast paced tech innovative culture to some extent. Morgan Stanley works more like a big wealth management and investment bank. They are governance oriented, methodical and meticulous in their approach. Both have their pluses and minuses. There are a lot of talented people and everyone I know is very friendly. They support various poc initiatives and volunteerism

As an immigrant, I’m grateful for the opportunities afforded to me since moving to the USA. But, I must say, it still doesn’t feel like home after a decade.

COVID really made me realize that life is indeed short.
