Summer Analyst Interview

Summer Analyst
San Francisco, CA

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Morgan Stanley in February 2013.

Interview Details – Interviewed on campus for first round. Standard walk me through your resume questions for about 15 mins then the next 15 mins were spent on technicals. Technicals were easy because I wasn't a business major; if you look through the mergers and inquisitions list you should be good.

Interviewed at their office for the next round. It was 6 people (superdays are long). The analysts tend to focus on the more technical questions and the MD and VPs focus more on the fit and personality.

Interview Question – How do you adjust a GAAP term to become a non-GAAP term   Answer Question

Summer Analyst Interview

Summer Analyst

Interviewed at Morgan Stanley

Interview Details – The first round interview was held on campus with two interviewers. It consisted of three in depth technical questions based around understanding of the balance sheet, income statement, and CF statement. The was super day held in the MS NYC office with 3 separate interviews. Each one had a different focus (fit, technical, and general knowledge). The technical questions in this round focused primarily on the CAPM model and running a DCF with WACC.

Interview Question – Walked in and was handed a piece of paper and told to fill in the blanks on the three statements to make them balance. Was not difficult, but then had to analyze the company and walk through various scenarios as to how the current situation was possible.   Answer Question
