Director - Operations Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days – interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in February 2012.
Typical Phone interview with Recruiter, follow up phone interview with a manager, onsite interview 1) Recruiter interview.. basic screening call to understand background and interest. very easy call 2) Phone interview with manager - resume review, some questions on background and the job 3) Onsite interview - 1 interview with ED. Poorly coordinated, the ED didin't even show up. No Greeter or reception... poorly managed and coordinated. Had to reschedule (I should have seen this as a warning sign at how poorly things are run there).
- What is your experience in managing a team? Answer Question
Negotiation is possible... don't be fooled by their "Total Compensation" number.. its mostly a mirage and a lie. They will underpay you by giving you a low base, and a promise of a large bonus number, that will make your total look impressive. In this environment, nobody outside front office trading/sales/inv banking is getting bonuses.. get as much of base as you can, or ask for front loaded signing bonus rather than year end (which will most likely get cut). Don't trust their bonus number!

I applied for a Temp contract, the application process involved submitting a C.V then being interviewed as part of a generic group the phone interviewed by the hiring manager. After being taken on and working as a Temp for 6 month I was taken on full-time.
