Senior Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in April 2010.

Interview

Only talked to three people: the hiring manager, the team lead, and an outside expert. I just informally talked with the manager on a walk in the city, it was mostly for him to present the project and assess my personality. The team lead asked me about my experience and we chatted about my prior work experience. Not a single tech question. The outside expert had some tougher questions, most (but not all) I could answer.

Interview Questions

Negotiation

No negotiation. They matched my previous salary, hinting but not promising more.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (London, England (UK)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Approached by an agent.

    Codility online test which is about 90 mins with three test. Two algorithms tests which are not difficult. The other one is a quite trivial programming test not difficult but not easy to get the requirement right.

    After the test take about 1 week for them to call back to some question about the test itself and some general technical question.

    After another 1 week onsite interview. Three round with 2 people each. 1st round seems some junior developer asking very basic questions and needs to write some coding on paper! 2nd round some senior developer some more general technical questions, mostly on previous projects. 3rd round managers (I think) and mostly soft skill questions.

    Although I feel generally positive about my performance in the interview, in the end, it is no offer, no feedback. Nice place to do the interview though.
