    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Budapest (Hungary)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    After handing in my application on the company's website, I was called right the next day. It was a phone interview which lasted for 15 mins. After the HR manager introduced himself, I was talking to, he asked a few questions about my knowledge that I included in my CV. After then, my English knowledge was reviewed (it's necessary for the job) where the guy asked about my motivation for the job and interest in Data Analysis. Also, I had to present my previous career.. At the end of the interview we scheduled a second phone interview which was a technical one rather than general. Some days later I was called and I was told that I couldn't manage to get into the third round with no specific explanation.

    Vice President, Technology Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Budapest (Hungary)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Budapest (Hungary)).

    Interview

    Regarding Enterprise Technology the process is generally very long and slow. On average it can take about 4 to 6 weeks from start to end. Numerous levels of interviews are required from local and remote hiring managers. Local HR is relatively junior and doesn't possess any real decision making authority but manages the local process only. The right profile, influence/persuasion and lots of patience will be required if you're looking to land a job in the firm.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions vary depending on the interviewer, role and function. There are no standardized questions. The general approach is tiered:

      1) 1 or 2 Phone Screens: Assessment of expectations, motivation and English language skills. Performed by local HR representative and functional contact (30 minute duration).

      2) 1 or 2 Technical Interviews: Assessment of technical skills and knowledge appropriate for the role. Performed by functional team lead/members (30 - 60 minutes duration), on-site and/or phone.

      3) 1 or 2 Manager Interviews: Assessment of team-fit and overall ability to deliver value add. Performed by local and/or functional managers (30 - 60 minutes), on-site and/or phone.

      4) 1 or 2 Culture-fit Interview: Assessment of cultural-fit to Morgan Stanley. Performed by local department heads (30 - 60 minutes), typically on-site.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Budapest (Hungary)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Interviewed via video conference from the Morgan Stanley office in my hometown. Started with an HR interview, moved on to the job specific interview. Friendly people, I felt comfortable. My one objection is that they never reconnected after the interview, they should at least have the courtesy to send an email to let me know that I didn't get the position.
