Awesome company culture. Cinnaire doesn't just talk about their mission to help people and impact lives, they act on it and truly care about the communities they serve and the people that work at the


Can be a little siloed between the different departments and offices but mostly a result of people working remotely during the pandemic

    Average Interview

    I applied through an employee referral The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cinnaire (Chicago, IL) in Jun 2021


    I was invited to apply for the position by an employee. I applied, and indicated my desired salary. A few days later an HR rep sent an email offering 40% less than what I asked for. Her lowball offer was really insulting because I have so much experience. I didn't even bother interviewing for the position.

    Are you willing to accept far less than you are worth?

At Cinnaire, our first and foremost priority is the health and safety of our employees, partners and the communities we serve. As we have monitored the COVID pandemic, Cinnaire’s leadership made a decision to direct all staff to work remotely indefinitely. Business related travel and in person meetings have been seemlessly replaced with video conferencing and web-based platforms. These decisions were made based on science and awareness that social distancing is the most effective way to interrupt the transmission of the virus. Our business continuity plan and the technologies we have in place have allowed us to continue to serve our partners, investors and communities effectively and without interruption and we have implemented a range of programs internally to keep our staff engaged, connected and uplifted through these unprecedented times. Our leadership team continues to assess the situation and modify our plan accordingly. We also continue to communicate updates with our employees and partners.

Black History Month may be over but Cinnaire’s focus on honoring Black History and fostering social equity continues. Throughout 2021 we will continue to highlight the importance of investing in Black communities and the work that still needs to be done to move our industry and our nation toward racial equity. Since our nation’s founding, government and banks have systemically and structurally disenfranchised Black communities – from financial paths to entrepreneurship and homeownership. In this episode of Advancing Communities Podcast, Prosperity Now CEO Gary Cunningham discusses how we can address the income and asset gap and build Black wealth in order to create an economy that works for all. Prosperity Now is a national coalition of African American CDFIs committed to closing the racial wealth divide and dismantling systemic racial and economic disparities. Gary shares his experience and perspective on the challenges Black owned businesses face in access to capital and technical assistance; Prosperity Now’s multi-faceted approach to addressing the history of racism in lending at
