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

    Pros

    Fast learning. Fast responsibility. Encouraged learning. You can talk to anyone. You're given very clear feedback on where you need to be, and how you can get there. Everyone wants to help you get there. It is difficult to get there. Never been in an environment where people enjoy working as hard. Fun. Inspiring. You lead your own direction.

    Cons

    If you don't like working late, or hours eating into yours, it may not be for you. It doesn't happen to me often, but it does every now and again; and i often think about work at home. I don't mind that, and in fact think it's important to remain sane (I don't buy the idea of trying to get away from work, why would you work there if you don't enjoy it?).

    Advice to Management

    Focus on solid process as we expand, to ensure the culture remains as productive.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Chemistry Group.

    Interview

    Upon applying I was first asked to complete a series of personality questionnaires in order to ascertain whether I would be the right kind of 'fit' for the people at the Chemistry Group. After passing these I was invited to a telephone interview which was really friendly and informal and asked questions about my past experiences as well as factors that motivate me and what I am looking for in a working environment. Following the telephone interview I was asked to complete some more questionnaires which were intelligence based.
    After completing these questionnaires I had to wait around 5 weeks before I was contacted again at which point I had completely given up on getting any response to my numerous emails and phone calls asking what was going on with my application.
    I was finally invited to an assessment day which was fantastic, really relaxed and a great day overall where we had to complete 3 different exercises; an activity in which we individually had to plan out and organise a schedule which included a variety of events, a series of 6 4 minute interviews with 'employees' from a customer company, and finally a group presentation in which we had to present back the information we had gathered during the interviews and present it back to the 'CEO' of the customer company. The assessment day gives a really good insight into what working at the chemistry group would be like and a chance to talk to the people who work there to see what they like about it.
    Tip: make sure you really think about the interview task as this seems to be what they base their opinions on.

    What's it like to apply to Chemistry!? - Chemistry Group

    At Chemistry a phrase you will often hear is 'We drink our own champagne". This doesn't mean that we like to crack open champagne in the office on a Tuesday afternoon; instead it's something that runs through the core of everyday working at Chemistry.
