I have been working at Boston Properties full-time
BP is a great place to work.
Wish parking was paid for.
I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Boston Properties (Boston, MA) in August 2016.
Applied in June 2016. Contacted at end of July 2016 to schedule a phone interview with HR. Invited in for a 4.5-hour interview with 6 members of the team, which went very well. Two interviewers asked a good number of technical / RE valuation-related questions. Others mostly just behavioral and gauging interest. I had no indication there would be more interviews after these four hours. One full week later I was invited in for "another round" of interviews. This one 5.5 hours, and included meeting with six individuals and taking a modeling assessment, which was a specific JV deal Modeling / Proforma case study - not an Excel exercise but very specific RE modeling problem. Interviews went well, modeling went OK. I did not hear back from anyone until a full week later, which was an HR email indicating they were going with someone else. A total of 10.5 hours of interviews (phone and 2 in person), and little insight given from HR notifying me of the need for another long interview had me relatively decided that the company didn't value my time - particularly because I have another job in Finance. I asked HR for some feedback as to the decision given I thought the interviews went great, and they never emailed me back. Felt to me to be a slow-moving "heads down" culture firm with some communication barriers between groups and HR, which the couple of junior interviews admitted about the firm, and I would have liked less of my time invested in the process regardless of whether I received an offer or not. This said, I really enjoyed meeting and speaking with all of the interviewers and would have otherwise enjoyed working with them.
