    Avantages

    I joined Chemistry because I admired their intent to genuinely help people have careers that enable them to be the best they can be. As a former client of the product, I found them to be sincere, abstract in their thinking, and determined to truly change the world of work.

    I believe there are, very broadly, two types of organisation. Those that border on Nihilism, where structure, bureaucracy, and safety are the way, and those that flirt with being fanatical. Both are needed in the world, and they key of course is to never tip the balance so far that you allow safety to stifle growth (which is why most die), or, to let the fanatical become a cult.

    For me, Chemistry always towed this line perfectly. It was the most exciting, engaging, and passionate place I have ever worked. I learnt more from the CEO, Roger, than any other leader I have worked with. Many of the leadership team were the most courageous, unique, insightful, and brilliant people I have ever worked with. It is no fluke to have such a buzzing and connected team as to what Chemistry, in a least three phases of the company, have built. Never have I seen a workplace be so focused on an intent and set of values.

    Above all, what Chemistry enable is people to think differently, and learn more than they probably will elsewhere. That doesn't mean it's not without bumps, but then that's life! I have seen truly amazing relationships and other businesses be born from people working together at Chemistry.

    Inconvénients

    For me, it's not that Chemistry have overt 'cons' per se, rather, as a place centred on such a strong intent, it required people of a certain mentality, namely being able to manage uncertainty, and unpredictability. I believe almost every person at the company had this mentality (a truly amazing group of people). However it's inevitable that to maintain keeping people happy as you expand, puts untold pressure on a culture built on these foundations.

    Candidature

    Le processus a pris 3 jours. J'ai passé une entrevue à The Chemistry Group.

    Entretien

    I applied through Workable via their website after doing some research about what the company does. I was really enthusiastic about their product and their company ethos so spent quite a long time writing a cover letter as well as providing an extensive and thoughtful answer to the question 'Why do you want to work for Chemistry?'

    I sent all this through at midnight on a Saturday and by Sunday afternoon, had an email thanking me for my application and sending through an online Culture Fit assessment link. I was of two minds about this - was it a bad sign that someone in HR was working on a Sunday afternoon? But as I was keen, I looked at it as 'at least I don't have to wait until Monday to hear'. I completed the online assessment which didn't take too long and it posed some interesting work/colleague scenarios. You receive a report immediately giving you the results which I enjoyed reading and found interesting. I also felt that the report results did accurately reflect my personality (I came out very high on flexibility, transparency and curiosity).

    I received a generic email Monday morning saying: "After reviewing your application, we don’t feel we have the right opportunity for you in the business at the moment." While grateful that the process only took a few days, it struck me that the response wasn't reflective of the role that I had applied for (I had applied for a specific job they posted and the reply didn't fit). I came away thinking that they are taking a sort of 'fast food' approach to hiring and in hindsight, I can see that it is not the company for me.
