Recently Morgan Stanley came to our campus to recruit interns for Summer Internship. Luckily I got shortlisted and therefore I would like to share my experience with others so that it can be helpful.
Firstly, an online test was conducted(90 minutes duration) on HackerRank, consisting of 15 MCQs(Data Structures, C concepts, Logical Puzzles, General Aptitude) and 2 coding questions(One based on string manipulation and other based on map-based implementation).
13 out of around 100 students were shortlisted for the interviews.
Round 1 (Technical – Easy)
I was asked about my project(Android App Development) which I did after 2nd Year B.Tech.
Basically, the whole interview was about the basics of pointers, datatypes, and choice of data structures in different real-life case scenarios.
After this round 9 students were shortlisted for further rounds.
Round 2 (Technical – Medium)
1.Implementation(Had to write the code) of snake like traversal of binary tree.
2.Discussion about which data structure to use for linking fields of database.
3.Question based on Topological Sort algorithm(Wriiten Code).
4.A logical reasoning puzzle .
Round 3 (HR – Easy)
1. Why Morgan Stanley?
2. What are your strengths and weaknesses?
3. A friendly discussion about extracurricular activities mentioned in my CV.
4. Give an incident where you showed your leadership skills.
Finally, 6 students got shortlisted for an Internship!
Additional Comments: It is an easy interview overall to clear, provided that you are really aiming for this company with proper preparation beforehand.
Be confident and revise all data structures well! ALL the BEST!
