Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Morgan Stanley.

Interview Details

The interview process consisted of one phone interview and one onsite interview.
The phone interview was technical and based on the projects I had mentioned on my resume.
The onsite interview consisted of 3 events. First there was a one hour panel, where we spoke with Morgan Stanley (MS) employees who were previously interns. We asked them questions regarding their experience and work at MS.
The next event was a group activity where we were divided into teams of 3/4 people and given a task to perform (build a bridge). There were 3 judges who were questioning each team about their decisions, etc.
Final event was one-on-one interviews. 4 interviews, 30 mins each, very technical.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Morgan Stanley.

    Interview Details

    Invited to an on-campus interview. Two 30-minute back-to-back interviews, each with two employees at the division I applied for. Questions were largely unexpected and varied. Seem to have a list of brainteaser-like questions (not necessarily technical but related to finance) that require fast and improvised response.

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Morgan Stanley in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    They were very quick in responding and maintained communication really well. I was stunned to see that the entire process right from phone interview to offer took only 2 weeks. It was one phone interview and then a superday where there is a panel presentation, group activity and then 4 1:1 interviews.

    Interview Questions
    • They pretty much asked me everything, right from data structures to algos to networks to sql and also some behavioral and analytical questions. OOPs concepts, trees, joins, java were some of them.   Answer Question

    Phone interview - paper test - Group interview - Manager interview
    Group interview was a task. You have a discussion on some topic and each person gets to present for 30 seconds at the end. It was pretty intense.
    Manager interview asks a lot of questions that had been asked in the phone interview.
