Does Alcumus have a pension plan?

Pros

I've been working at Alcumus for approximately a year. I haven't got a bad word to say. The company is investing heavily in tech and people in an attempt to become best in class for its software. I think they can achieve this. During my time here I have faced several unforeseen difficulties not related to work necessitating me taking large amounts of time of. The company could not have been more accommodating. From HR to my line manager, my treatment was first class. A great deal of thought and care, plus aftercare was provided to me, nothing was too much trouble. I have never worked anywhere where its people are considered so integral a part of the company. If you want to work hard, you'll get out more than you put in. the perks and discounts on everyday items are unexpected but gratefully received, the pension more than fair. with Alyn at the helm this company appears to only be going upwards.

Cons

Communication can be an issue. Spread over several sites in the UK it is sometimes difficult to work out what is going on where. This is not a detriment as such, its just an observation and common in multi-site companies

Advice to Management

keep doing what you're doing!

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.
