I was a new grad, so there was not much to negotiate! 30k is what I had to settle with.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Advisory Board (Washington, DC) in July 2013.
Had an internal referral, I was told they review the application and get back to you in two weeks if there's a fit. Had a phone interview with a recruiter who asked me some pretty standard behavioral questions: strengths/weaknesses, asked me to talk about what projects I worked on in my previous job, etc.
2+ weeks later, after emailing them to ask the status, they told me that they didn't have any openings to match my skills.
I found the interivew process a little strange. It seemed that they were completely uninterested in the fact that I was experienced, and seemed more like the interview was tailored towards their typical hire: someone right out of college. Which is fine, perhaps that's their target applicant. From all the reviews of this place, it's likely for the best.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Advisory Board (Washington, DC) in December 2011.
I first applied for a general Healthcare Consultant position, interviewed on the phone and about two weeks later got a rejection email. No problem with that! A couple of weeks after that was reached out by a recruiter and offered to interview on-site for a different position. The job description was great and I realized that I would be a good fit for the position. On the day of the interview I discovered that I was being interviewed for a position different from what the job description stated. I didn't get the offer. I don't begrudge them for that, but they could write the job description for the position the hiring manager wants to fill.

The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Advisory Board (Washington, DC) in December 2010.
Two phone interviews, and then asked to fly out for a real interview. Phone interviews were about 30 minutes. Offered to proceed with an in-person interview but declined flying out, as it wasn't possible for me to relocate.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Advisory Board (Washington, DC) in February 2010.
The phone interview was a standard behavioral interview held by a corporate recruiter. The main focus of the interview was why I wanted to join Advisory Board and what the position could offer me that my current job could not. There were also some questions about my experiences with my current company, but again, everything led back to what I thought I could gain by working at ABC.
