I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley in May 2017.

Contacted via LinkedIn by an HR. Initial phone screen then phone interview. Didn't get any reply to all the follow up mails after. Very unprofessional. Also setting up phone interview was also painful. The HR rescheduled the phone interview just an hour before.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Many 1 hour long interviews to go through.
    Some of these interviews were aligned in the same day.
    This adds to the stress of interviewing, but it really evaluates candidates ability to cope with a fast changing environment.
