What are meetings like at Alcumus?

Pros

An employer who looks after their employees through obtaining their views and acting upon them. Employees views are encouraged and are given through People Forums, 1-2-1 meetings with line managers and other meetings. The company's values were developed with the help of staff. The working environment is a friendly one. Staff are expected to work well, but the rewards are good. As the business is technology led, this leads to benefits in flexible and home working for staff.

Cons

There has been quite a lot of change at Alcumus as the business has been developed and improved. This is a good thing, but some people do not like change. However, in my opinion, the majority of changes have been for the better.

Advice to Management

Keep listening to staff and improving the business, to help the sustainability of the business. Also, keep improving the Customer Experience.
