    Application

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

    Interview

    Employees came down to my university and did on-campus interviews. The interviewer asked very basic questions about my resume, did not get too technical. Was easy to talk to just didn't get a chance to stand out due to simple questions and volume of people interviewing.

    Wealth Management Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Blue Bell, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Blue Bell, PA).

    Interview

    Applied through university career site. Shortly after, I got a call from a representative to schedule an interview. She left a message without leaving her name or even what company she was with, so when I returned her call I had to ask, (as there are many companies I had been looking at and applied for) and she seemed offended that I didn't know it was "Morgan Stanley, a financial institution." On par with our first point of contact, she later cancelled the interview with another very pleasant voicemail, "Hey this is XYZ with MS, I'm cancelling your appointment. The position has been filled."

    This rep was unprofessional and extremely rude. Although MS is a prestigious institution, I would not imagine that this is the best environment to work.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY).

    Interview

    First interviewed at a conference and was invited to an onsite super day. The process consisted of a panel discussion, a team activity and three rounds of interviews with engineers there. Pretty frustrating experience because ALL the interviews for the group of candidates happened in the SAME conference room. I felt that there was really no privacy at all and hard to concentrate sometimes due to other people's talking. One of my interviewers was apparently wrong about a run time analysis but he told me that I was wrong when I provided the correct answer.

    Interview Questions

    • Using the object oriented design concepts, how would you describe the current conference room that we are in right now?   Answer Question
