How are the career development opportunities at Alcumus?

Pros

Has some good benefits since the recent change with terms and conditions, pension being one of them. Although there is no work life/home life balance with the company.

Cons

The business expects you to work long hours and travel ridiculous amounts of miles for low salary and you get no thanks for this, especially from management. I feel that they have made some incorrect decisions over the last 12 months and this has meant the company has taken a backwards step in my eyes. There is no career opportunities within the business unless your 'face fits'

Advice to Management

Listen to the people and respect the employees, live and breath your values rather than re-designing them and not following them.

What kind of career opportunities exist at Alcumus?

Pros

Support, in so many ways. From the benefits offered to if you need additional support on a personal/well-being level. So much has changed in the company over the past few years but it's all been for the better. I cannot enthuse enough about being able to discuss a chronic condition with my line manager and have support to "feel better" and be encouraged to "be better" at the same time. I've now been able to progress into a job role which is an amazing opportunity and to know the Company listens and does as much as it can for employees just adds to how much I hope I'm here for many years to come.

Cons

The fast pace of the business isn't for everyone, but if you love being busy then this isn't an issue.

Advice to Management

Keep developing the communication and technology, these areas are so vital. Keep delivering on your aims, what you offer us in terms of benefits and being transparent in how the Company is doing.
