How are senior leaders perceived at Alcumus?

Pros

Working with some great people who support me everyday. I have a laugh every day! My manager and senior management team are very supportive and care about our wellbeing, development and how we are doing. The benefit package is really good; healthcare cash back, pension, money off discounts, gym discounts. We even have free fruit, food for lunchtime and a wicked coffee machine! The MD is really inspiring, the HR Partner is cool and supportive, the sales and delivery teams work better than ever to make sure we have great customer experience

Cons

The learning and development offering hasn’t been great, but the HR Partner is working hard with us on career mapping and cool things like Linked In learning

Advice to Management

Keep listening to us as we are the people on the ground who have the best ideas!! Team info exchange

How is management perceived at Alcumus?

Pros

The people and the culture here is excellent! There’s a real work hard play hard environment with people laughing on the floor every day. High energy, high reward, canteen on site, career progression, excellent company benefits, free onsite parking in Cardiff office, recreation room, involved and approachable CEO. Generally a fantastic employer to work for.

Cons

This is a fast paced employer which worked for me but it won’t work for all. Your role will not be the only role you do and you will be expected to involve yourself in other areas. There are very high expectations and management will be looking for people to constantly be moving forward and driving the business upwards (which is a good thing). However, if you like to get comfortable in a role by simply getting your work done and going home, this role may not be for you.

Advice to Management

Although I believe management to be on the right path generally, they could be more open to being challenged. They should harness the creativity of alternative viewpoints even if they don’t necessarily agree.
