    I have been working at MSCI full-time


    Very good culture
    Transparent decision making
    Independence in working
    Good knowledge sharing


    Lateral shift can be a problem, since it is into limited financial services viz. Index and Analytics
    However, there is flexibility in the role one plays in the broader team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at MSCI in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    The recruiter who had posted the job on linkedin contacted me directly so I'd say that it might not be a bad idea to include a cover letter with the recruiter's name on an application. The recruiter went over the target salary almost right away and discussed both the responsibilities of the role and explained why the role was created. The recruiter had a good handle on my resume and asked very specific questions on relating my experience to the role.

    Interview Questions
    • The upfront question on salary took me aback. I was not expecting this on a first contact.   Answer Question
    No Offer
