I have been working at Kindred Group full-time
Exec are really approachable. Company has a really friendly feel.
Org structure a bit of a mess. Lots of recent growth means a lot of confusion.
Advice to Management
Modernise ways of working. Company too 9-6 desk based for a modern digital company.
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Kindred Group (London, England) in April 2017.
After 10+hrs (1hr phone, 2hrs in person 1:1, 5hrs final interview in the office, 2 hours for HR online tests + prep time) they went radio silent for 2 weeks - quite unprofessional by any measure. It all started on a positive note, but in the process incompetence and unprofessionalism were visible - Head of Data was not aware of how company shares are doing, interviewee gave wrong answers to his own interview questions. In addition, he was also rather mean and rude and only after few days I remembered that my previous company rejected him years ago, which may have explained his behavior. My own rejection came because of poor behavioral fit, which given its' subjectivity is a fair enough reason. Overall I found nice people there (except the person above) and the company itself is ripe for better use of data analytics, but hiring process is inefficient, so beware of time and energy spent.
