    I worked at Kin + Carta Americas full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone encourages to take part in multiple things. But outside of office hours. The system works by billing the client but should cut some slack or provide benefits if someone is participating in internal projects

    Cons

    1) Peer reviews/feedbacks totally depends if the team lead likes you or not. Despite good feedbacks consecutively, you might not get promoted.
    2) Claiming to be a family is a bogus statement if you don't support the family. The employees needed the most support when COVID hit instead they laid off a huge chunk of people without any prior notice. That was a sad day.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the false claims that the company would support every individual in all situations. I'd encountered 3 situations which were of utmost importance during my tenure at K+C Americas and no assistance was provided in all 3 situations. I wish I could elaborate but sadly couldn't.

    The interview process was clearly outlined and process moved quickly. It involved a screening and then a phone interview. The last step in the process is a case study presentation and interview with 3 individuals from the Product side.

  • We're kicking off a new fiscal year and the Americas team celebrated at yesterday's Quarterly Meeting. Over 400 Kin joined one Zoom call to look forward together on the year ahead. We're seeing an evolution of internal support structures, innovation within our business, and leadership opportunities across the firm. Celebrating year-end reminds us that our Kin really do Make it Happen.

    Our Slack channel connecting Kin Carta parents is one of our favorites. This week alone we celebrated a newborn, a 1st birthday, and some hilarious Zoom call crashes from out littlest Kin. We had to share this shot of baby Miles, already rocking Kin Carta swag! Sending so much appreciation to our Kin Carta parents as they balance two full-time jobs, we have so much compassion and appreciation for everything you do!
