I have been receiving some emails asking about the IT division of Morgan Stanley in Shanghai over the last a few weeks. First of all, I would like to clarify that I am not a Morgan Stanley employee any more and I can’t disclose any confidential information to the interviewees.
Morgan Stanley is a great company with robust technology infrastructures. I think this is quite rare for a financial company. People are smart and friendly there and it’s definitely a good company to work for! However, it is not suitable for everybody.
I believe Morgan Stanley Shanghai is growing very fast now and there are a lot of opportunities there. If you are interested in the IT position, you can go to its website to have a look.
I believe that there are loads of head hunters out there for your career move. One thing you should be aware is that it’s a not an IT company. Hence, the company culture is not similar to IT companies such as Google or Microsoft.
Bear in mind that you are going to join a financial company not an IT company before foraying into the interviews.
