Does Alcumus offer sponsored degrees?

Pros

The majority of people are friendly and wonderful Relaxed dress code Enhanced benefits Hybrid working Business likes to appear people focused so effort made with support, mental health etc There are some good careers for those who "fit in" or are on a very visible/natural progression route The business is doing well

Cons

Your skills are not always valued to the same level as other businesses might see them Benefits that save money are provided, but just a reminder, these benefits don't necessarily pay rising bills! Questionable behaviours and expectations from mid and senior level managers Recent shift in culture and atmosphere as the business becomes larger. Corporate is not for everyone Fast paced environment can also mean no time to adjust to changes - another review referred to it being like on a "treadmill" All about people focused efforts, but only if it benefits the business and/or looks good. Too many things being talked about, stop trying to do everything at once Communication can be poor, resulting in duplication of work efforts or crossed wires Social media effort to promote hybrid working was pushed via a competition with prizes, so didn't feel genuine Can be difficult to voice your concerns as there is an answer for everything or you're made to feel as if you're being difficult Career opportunities are not as good as suggested

Advice to Management

Actions speak louder than words, look at what you do, how you do it and what impact that might have on people.
