I worked at SL Green Realty (Less than a year)
Worked in the IT department as a temp to assist the Telecom Manager. The IT team had about ten members at the time. I'm not sure if the same team is there, but everyone was really helpful. I was able to take on new projects and get exposure to new tech skills. In fact, this was my first real exposure to enterprise-level database work, which is now a big part of my current role. SL Green seemed to have allocated a good amount of budget to the IT department. Overall, a good experience. Wouldn't be where I am without it.
I did see a lot of turnover within the department around the time I was leaving. I'm not sure why. I wish I could give more insight, but I have no knowledge of the compensation package SL Green offers to full-time employees.
Advice to Management
Always invest in technology, it is so crucial not to fall behind. Organization of data is key, especially with regard to operational costs and risk management analysis. The system created by database developer(s) is extremely valuable. Continue to invest in this area. Note: this may be outdated, since I worked here in 2013. They may very well do this already.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at SL Green Realty (New York, NY) in May 2015.
Called in for an in-person interview at their office in NYC. Met with HR first then met with the person I'd be reporting to second. Questions were basic but specific at times. Both individuals were nice, as well as the receptionist. Get there early if you are not familiar with Grand Central's set-up.
