Executive Director

Interviewed at Morgan Stanley

Interview Details – Very very very thorough interview process. I was interviewed as an associate. Even then i remember having to go through at least 8 rounds of grilling before the position was offered. In each round the interviews were very exploratory and gave enough opportunity to leverage ideas

Interview Question – cant think back in time. Overall the interviews were more open ended.   Answer Question
