Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley in April 2011.

after phone screening ; there are several rounds of one on one interview; they are very very selective in the process; the whole group meets the person which he is being interviewed and then based the rating from each interviewer a decision is reached.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley.

    Interview

    Collegial and team-oriented. Met with most of the team that I eventually worked with, as well as the head of the group. Salary negotiations were left to human resources to work out. If you go in at a title that you consider too low, you can request a review at the end of a year for a promotion, if you meet agreed-upon metrics.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Purchase, NY) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Typical, interview process. I met with Human Resources first, then with the hiring manager and finally a diverse group of people from the hiring team. Was asked to describe market and operations specific questions around pricing data flows. Was also asked how I would handle certain situations, large volumes, ect. The harder question was how I would manage the interaction with 17,000 financial advisors and ways to make communication manageable and auditable.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. They offered the position and I took it. Looking back now, I should always negotiate.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Purchase, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    On site interview with members of the team that consisted of fit and behavior questions. The members of the team were cordial but the whole process was confusing. They told me that they would get back to me and never did. On top of this I had another interview with the company, unrelated, and the same exact thing happened. I received no feedback or response on the position from anyone from the company. I know that no company is required to get back to employees after interviews but there is a standard of professionalism that is expected. I would not interview or work for this company ever, period.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in August 2009.

    Interview

    I have been through 3 very good rounds and normally they have fixed up the next round within a few days of the first. After the last round, I have not heard anything for over a week now. Is this normal? Do they not tell the people if the person is not selected? Any feedback appreciated.
