New York, NY

The process took a day - interviewed at Morgan Stanley in January 2011.

Interview Details – I applied through my University career center. Got invited for a phone interview. First they asked about a project on my resume. Dow, MS stock price and USD/EUR exchange rate. Then they went on to some very difficult brainteasers and an easy option pricing question. My advice for those who interview for this position is to focus on brain teasers in your preparation.

Interview Question – Starting at 0.0.0 going to 3.3.3 and you can only move right, up or forward. How many paths are there to 3.3.3?   View Answer

Interview Details – Phone interview. Several Math questions. Takes thirty minutes. First asked about whether following the market, the price of current stocks, interest rate, currency exchange rate etc. The first round was just math, by a probably low level recruiter.
Six questions in thirty minutes. The interviewer recorded my answers. Finally, let you ask questions

Interview Question – Say you have one bacterium now. In any minute, each living one has a quarter chance of dieing, a quarter of staying still, a quarter of splitting into 2, and a quarter of splitting into 3.
What is the probability of this species dieing out finally.
