The best part of my
summer experience at Morgan Stanley was…
working on a project that would actually go to production. I was able to take responsibility for my own projects, which really made me feel like I added value to the team. My team members were always willing to help and answer my questions, and my manager gave me regular feedback. My mentor was very important to me during my internship—our discussions over coffee or lunch were a great opportunity to talk over issues I wouldn’t necessarily discuss with my manager. Also, in addition to all the networking events which were held especially for the Summer Analysts and Co-ops, I could also join social committees, networks and sports teams.
The best part of my
working in a global team to start building my network of peers and technical experts and understanding how to solve the most challenging financial problems, whether that involved meeting the needs of businesses, designing or programming or testing the latest software, resolving a hardware issue in Hong Kong or helping to manage a major outage preventing our clients from connecting to our trading platform in California.
As a Technology
I was working on a real world project that added value to my team and provided me a first-hand knowledge of what it's like to be a technologist for a world-class financial firm. My internship required first-rate technical skills, as well as strong analytical, problem solving and communication skills. Technologists interested in developer roles have experience in at least one programming language (eg. C++, Java, C#). Those interested in engineering roles have experience in operating systems, computing hardware, and related technology. Those looking for business Analyst roles have an understanding of the technology life cycle and can identify process improvements.
Analysts and Co-ops can go on to…
full-time jobs at Morgan Stanley, where they have an opportunity to become future senior leaders at the firm and leaders within the industry. The knowledge and networks you start to build as a Summer Analyst or Co-op will advance your career as a subject matter expert, project manager, team leader or an enterprise leader.
I selected the
Technology department because…
I could develop and implement cutting-edge technologies used by thousands of end users. Our technology industry partners used us to test their technology and incorporate our feedback before their products go to market. I was excited to work with some of the world’s most talented technologists. Launching my career at Morgan Stanley allowed me to be at the forefront of technology innovation.
I chose to start my career in Financial
I was impressed by how everyone I met had a strong technical background. I was also excited about enhancing my skills through the global training program, which helped me to launch my career. I knew I’d be given a lot of responsibility and the chance to work with and be a leader in innovative technology.
My division is
