    I have been working at The Chemistry Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    As a few other reviews make clear, Chemistry isn't perfect. However, I can confidently say that we've learned from the mistakes of the past and are doing our best to use those lessons to improve our ways of working. While there were pains in the latter half of 2017 (for various reasons), the business has made huge strides to understand the state of the business and is now reasonably and responsibly growing to best serve both employees and our clients.

    Personally, I saw the drastic improvements when I left Chemistry to go to a Big 4 firm and came back 3 months later to what was effectively a different company (in terms of finances and operations).

    I love working at Chemistry. My work has value. I'm heard, appreciated and supported by my colleagues. Our culture is unparalleled. I'm completely confident in the tools our science and delivery teams build, and have seen this evidenced by our clients.

    I have the freedom to pursue avenues that interest me for development and have opportunities to grow in ways that I've not experienced elsewhere. Honestly, it's a rare morning when I get up and don't want to come into work.
    Bonus: a million vacation days :)

    Cons

    Work/life balance can be more greyscale than black and white, and some days can be quite long. I generally don't mind, but it is important to understand.
    The normal pains of a growing company - there can be a lot of change, and with that, a variety of pace in adopting those changes.

    Junior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Chemistry Group (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Despite not being offered the position, this was by far one of the best candidate experiences I've ever had. The process included a number of values and motivations assessments which really provided insight into your workplace style preferences. In the end, it was deemed that I would not be a best fit for the company at the moment. The consultant who interviewed me on the phone was very pleasant, and great at providing in-depth feedback. I would certainly apply again just based off this experience.
