To be honest no! We have had a massive response from people submitting their CVs - literally in the hundreds! It showed that we had hit a nerve. We thought it was just us and a few people who had really had enough but it turns out loads of people across the globe are ready for a change. Our clients have reacted very positively and are willing to work with us. We thought not having a brand would be tricky but actually clients said they don’t care too much about that - what they want is consistent quality - and with all the press we now do have a brand! We do have some restrictions in the UK but nothing too serious. So all good so far.

That's awesome! I just started in Deals out of college a year ago. Your story is pretty inspirational, thanks for answering my question.

Wow, partners had enough of bs. How do we survive at the lower rank. Serious question.

If anyone wants to join a boutique HR & Talent Advisory consulting firm, Kincentric is hiring for an Associate Partner role! Location doesn’t really matter, but preferably in IL, NY, or ATL.
