Vice President - IT Interview
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in September 2010.
MS recruiter called me and setup a phone screening (30 mins). After a day, the recruiter informed me for 3 phone interviews with 3 people from the department (30 mins each). The interviewers were very pleasant and friendly. They made sure that I was comfortable, ensured that I understood the role correctly. Some of the interviewers were highly technical and some were more big picture personnel. After a week, they asked me to come in for a in-person interview where I met with another 3 people over couple of hours. Overall, I felt pretty good about the interview process and liked my chances. After a couple of days the HR called to say that the job is mine.
- Why should we hire you? Answer Question

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in February 2010.
There was a phone screen for an hour by 1 person. It was moderately difficult. This was followed 1 week later by 1:1 with 5 folks (each 45 min to an hour) in increasing order of seniority. 3 of the interviews were difficult with detailed probing questions and follow-ups. It was fun and a good experience. All had tech (basic and difficult) and business questions.
