I'd stick with Tishman. It's a great firm and I wouldn't want to mislead them by interviewing with Blackstone. There is too much more at risk than there is to gain.

I'd still interview with Blackstone. Alternatively, at the very least mention to HR you just accepted an offer from Tishman Speyer, but you'd like to be considered for full-time recruitment. Be advised FT is much more competitive due to high retention rate so fewer spots.

I know but a few employees gave me good recs and helped me out with the process at TS. I was pretty excited to go there for the summer after meeting with them. Definitely not worth jeopardizing relationships by interviewing at BX.

Was this in NY or London? Blackstone REPE?

You're entry-level. You take the best, most prestigious job that you can get. If you need to renege on an offer then do it--they've got about 500 people right behind you who want that job. TS will be fine. You're going to meet a multitude of people in the next decade, and a good portion of them will end up not being good contacts or part of your referral network, for your behavior, their behavior, personality conflicts, etc. That's just life.

Interview with Blackstone and if you get the job offer THEN cross the bridge about whether or not you want to take it.

Yes interview, gain that experience... it will only help

Interview but don't tell TS. TS is a great company but Blackstone is the best and there's really no argument.

She already made the wrong decision months ago. This is why women make less than men, btw. They absolutely suck at negotiation and positioning themselves properly during the hiring process.

^ Comments like that is exactly why you don't get laid. Why are you (and DCDepository) so angry at the world?

Turning down Blackstone is setting herself up to earn less money over the course of her life. She made a strategically bad decision that she will probably pay for over time. Women are just bad at the process of job seeking, for whatever reason. Seeing the same thing right now with a woman we are trying to hire--her salary negotiation skills have been atrocious to the point that it's probably going to cost her the job entirely.

Point is, there are myriad reasons why women, at large, make less than men even in the same positions. This thread is a classic example of that.

BTW, people like you are why I quit posting here for like 2 or 2 1/2 years. People like you are takers--you contribute virtually nothing to the advancement of knowledge on the forum while you lob personal insults at people. Instead of responding with something like, "I disagree. Women aren't bad at negotiations. Your experiences probably don't reflect the general reality. Plus, I agree with the OP's decision to stick with Tishman Speyer because..." you respond by making statements about my sex life.

Want to say I'm wrong? Fine. I've been wrong before. Defend your position. Want to lob personal insults at someone who, for the last 7 years, has tried to help every person who's contacted him via this forum and whose attempted to answer a multitude of questions to help others with things that he didn't get help on, then ya know what? Fuck you.

OP asks for feedback/advice, and you take a stab at the female gender based on her decision. Yes, very insightful information you have there, buddy. Thank you for sharing. On behalf of the WSO community, thank you for contribution...
