Positive Experience

Application

The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Baltimore, MD).

Interview

First round phone interview was very easy--mainly resume experience and background. Moved to two in office interviews and then a group interview. Group interview is based off how well you work with various people under pressure.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    It was very technical but fairly easy once you are prepared. It started off with a Panel discussion where you get to clear any doubts about the role being applied for. Next is a group challenge which evaluates teamwork. Lastly is three (one on one) interviews back to back which could last anything between 45 mins to One hour.

    Interview

    Nothing special in the beginning. He asked me about my interest in trading briefly - what product and why trading at a bank. Then he gave me a probability question and a brainteaser. Surprisingly there was no question about markets.

    Interview

    Applied for the Fixed Income S&T Summer Analyst internship. First round interview was behavioral. Superday was meeting with 5 individuals for 20-30 minutes each. Some asked strictly behavioral questions, some asked mostly markets based questions. Because I was interviewing with the fixed income group, one interviewer asked me all math questions and brain teasers (I come from a liberal arts background so he wanted to "test my quant skills"). As a female, I noticed that there was hardly a female interviewer on the floor (out of at least 20).

    The interview process is very structured, but informative. You can learn a lot from the people interviewing you. There are several rounds, followed by a super day. Contacted by HR after a week.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley in June 2016.

    Interview

    Mainly fit questions, some technical. Interviewer was clearly very concerned with gauging interest in the Morgan Stanley experience, as opposed to other Bulge brackets, middle markets, boutiques, or other classes of firms within the financial services industry.
