Interview Process   |   Interview Puzzles / Aptitude
Organization : Morgan Stanley
Position : Software Developer
I applied through my college and the interview process took just a day. There were six rounds in total.

First Round: Aptitude and Basic Knowledge Test
This was a written round. All the questions were based on aptitude with some logical puzzles and basic computer programming related. Please make a note that this is an elimination round.

Second Round: Coding Skills
In this round they will judge plainly and directly coding skills you have. The language is dependent upon your choice. You can choose either C language or Java.

Third Round: Technical Interview
You will reach this round only when you clear the second round. This round is based on technical questions only and difficult one as well. Do not expect any aptitude relief here. Also this is an elimination round as well.

Fourth Round: Group Activity
They will check how you react to different problems. Also they will judge how god you are in team work. Overall, this is a fun round.

Fifth Round: Technical Interview
Another technical interview and I thought that the previous round was juts to give us a break as I had to face some more technical questions again and that too difficult ones. There is no specific criteria and the questions were quite random but be prepared with your language properly.

Sixth Round: HR Interview
The HR will simply try to ask you in detail about your future plans and your pas experience. Be careful and confident in whatever you say as the following questions will definitely be based on what you say.

The interview was tough clearly. They made sure that only the technically brilliant person is selected.
