I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Tishman Speyer in April 2011.
Interview Details – Online application thru website. Company came back to me in due moment.
Interviews with senior/managing directors in the areas where I could potentially work.
Interview Question – Typical questions from each person depending on their specialty. Financial concepts, why you want to work in this field. Very interested in previous background, companies and college. They want people who fit with their "culture" if there is one. They seemed more interested in that than in anything else. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Not much negotiation... TS attitude is "you take or you leave it".
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 12 months - interviewed at Tishman Speyer.
Interview Details – it is weird that they still have outdated information from 2010 on their website within career section. No clear directions after application. Very negative experience without any communication or any feedback. If they are the company that people are talking about...I would expect them to be good at getting back and giving feedback and updating appropriate information on their website. If you are not hiring stop putting fake information on your website. I have tried several times for the past 2 years. No response. This time I go through an internal employee referral and that as well takes them so long. Very negative experience. TS is not on top of their game. No wonder employees have given it poor rating as a lousy and arrogant place to work at. Seems like they dont care.

Routine questions asked and answered.

Interview Details – Phone call from internal recruiter. Recruiter phone screen, 1 day on site with hiring manager and peers. All went pretty quick, 3 weeks total. Very nice NYC offices @ Rock Center. Culture very hard to determine on visit but seemed very conservative. Formal dress required. Stark white offices. Very quiet hallways which translates accurately into what working there is like.
Negotiation Details – Very quick negotiations. Gave me what I asked to leave former employer. Ask for what you want as long as not outrageous.
