Bonus Watch ’14: Morgan Stanley

Denizens of the House of Gorman received bonus numbers today. An early reaction from the frontline:

“Seems like overall people are getting +5-10% over last year, firm-wide. Last year was not good, so it makes sense that no one seems overly thrilled.”

    We've started to see bonus numbers for Morgan Stanley trickle into Bonus Hat. It's still a little too early to tell how specific departments fared.

    Next year please add a salary question and then you can add the option of viewing total comp (salaries can actually vary quite a bit even within the same title group).
