Vice President, Technology Interview

Anonymous Employee
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley.

Interview

one phone screen, a couple of in person interviews - mainly technology focused and then a ft interview. 2 of the interviewers were great, one was a bozo. But overall its good. Some old ED level folks are wayyy out of touch with the market/tech stack though.

The junior programmers(producers) were very sharp, but the dev managers/senior Tech managers seemed a bit old school

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in June 2010.

    Interview

    The interview process at MS was pretty straight forward. After having been submitted by an external recruiter, I was interviewed in person (no phone screen) by the hiring manager in his office. The interview went well and I believe the questions were more his own, i.e. it didn't feel like he followed a company assigned script. After the first interview, I was invited to speak to 2 peers of his during the same visit. Those interviews were very high-level and friendly. Finally I was interviewed by the hiring manager's boss a few days later. That interview was a little tougher and it felt like he was trying to stress test me a bit, but overall it was fine. The offer came in about a week after the final interview.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    The hiring manager set my expectation as to the salary range right away so there hadn't been much negotiation.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Budapest (Hungary)).

    Interview

    Regarding Enterprise Technology the process is generally very long and slow. On average it can take about 4 to 6 weeks from start to end. Numerous levels of interviews are required from local and remote hiring managers. Local HR is relatively junior and doesn't possess any real decision making authority but manages the local process only. The right profile, influence/persuasion and lots of patience will be required if you're looking to land a job in the firm.
