I worked at Kastle Systems full-time (More than 3 years)
Great work life balance. Welcoming team environment. Great benefits. Flexible schedule. Dedicated and inclusive leadership.
The only con is the pay could be more competitive.
Advice to Management
If the pay were a little more competitive it would be perfect.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Kastle Systems (Chicago, IL) in July 2016.
This was a long process. Unfortunately, I like the women who would be much direct manager but the woman who ran the place I took issue with. I wore a nice dress, makeup, etc but because I literally did not put a blazer on she made me come back even though she said I was perfect for the job. I went against my judgement because I was in dire need and went back. I interviewed with one of my potential colleagues. He was nice but not well spoken and seemed to not be on the same page of what an account manager should do /say etc. It took over a month and they came back with a job offer of less than the recruiter promised and would not budge on the below scale salary. I would advise women that even though this place is run by a woman, she is clearly not someone to look up to with regards to being accepted based on merit and not by 'male standards'
