I have been working at FTI Consulting full-time

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at FTI Consulting (London, England (UK)) in May 2020.
I was referred to FTI by an existing employee, and had an initial conversation within a week. During that initial conversation, the HR personnel was late for over an hour, she explained it was because she was too busy and asked to rearrange, which was understandable.
After we had our conversation, she told me she would let me know within a week whether they would progress me further. Of course, there was no response within a week so I chased them and she again told me she will let me know within a few days/week. The same thing carried on for a few more times... After 2 months from the initial conversation, I was informed that they had gone with candidates with more experience, which again is understandable. However, I do not appreciate and do not accept how slow and painful the process is, it's almost like they wait until they find a more suitable candidate with more experience before informing you that you do not have the right experience. This could have been communicated much earlier on.
Overall, It was not a pleasant experience and I felt that my time was not valued and this completely changed my view of this company. The process is unprofessional and I have not experienced such a sub-standard application process.
