    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY (US)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The process is a few phone calls followed by onsite interview. I was asked math, stats and probability questions. Most of the questions are not hard, either college level, or commonly seen on leetcode or other online resources. No behavioral questions at all. One of the onsite interviewers appeared sleepy and was absent-minded.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley in November 2013.

    Interview

    I had to take a written test first. The subjects covered are very broad even though each question is not too deep/complicated. Most of the questions were from stochastic analysis, finance (e.g. put-call parity), linear algebra, statistics/econometrics. There were also sections on Java and C++ and you had to choose one of these.

    2 weeks after the written test, I heard back saying I passed it and that I will have a phone screen. The phone interview was with a strats associate and it was quite pleasant. Asked a few questions about myself/resume, then a few questions on stochastic analysis, statistics/probability, and programming (not complicated).

    Interview Questions

    • Basic stochastic analysis and probability questions. No brain teasers.   Answer Question

    It was a second round of interview after I cleared round 1. There were 2 interviewers, one was nice while the other one seemed arrogant. They directly went ahead with probability and calculus questiosn. I could answer 3 out of 4 questions and did not get the offer.

    I applied online. Then got an email asking me to take a written exam on campus. I passed the exam, then got two phone interviews. For the second interview, tt was a pleasant experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (London, England) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Fairly straight forward - the interviews were set up by the school, and things moved quickly. As one would expect from a company like Morgan Stanley, the process was very professional and the interviews themselves were challenging. A slight surprise to not have a face-to-face interview, but overall it did not impact on the experience too much.
