What is working from home like at Alldus International?

Pros

I have no pros in working for Alldus

Cons

Within Alldus senior management asks of their staff to lie to their candidates that they are going for a promotion and will you leave a 5* google review. No promotions have ever been made, this is a tactic they do in order to push Alldus up as the "Most trusted recruitment company in Europe" in google rankings these reviews are not reflective of the business, you are asking your employees to do this on a day to day basis and promoting your reviews across social media platforms. They use scare mongering tactics to not pay staff money that is owed. Board members claiming they are in the major leagues of recruitment and consultants are in the minor leagues. Never has any employee been promoted during my time in the business. Incentives achieved and never paid out or not even a mentioned as to why. Salaries reduced by 20% overnight without any agreement from any employee whilst continuing to hire employees across the board, lying to staff that no hires would be made until our wages was rectified and continuing to do so. Requesting pens and papers are not top of their priorities so bring your own and do not bother to ask. No flexibility in your work day, zero atmosphere in the office. No work from home which is fine but I have seen consultants work until 8-8:30 pm nearly every day and come in 10-20 minutes late to be told they are disrespecting the business. No recognition of work done under any circumstance the lucky got to ring a bell hung up on the wall. Personal favorite was working Christmas Eve and the CCO left the office to arrive back with gifts (Wines, Chocolates ect all wrapped) for the clients that gave him business....not even a card for staff. The list goes on

Advice to Management

Give your staff recognition for the millions of euros they made your business.

How is the work/life balance at Alldus International?

Pros

Colleagues I worked with was great. Basic salary wasn’t too bad. Gained experience in who not to work for.

Cons

No work life balance - expected to take calls and emails on days off and if you don’t your took into a meeting and asked if this is really for you. (Employee left because of this) No culture or office atmosphere. If you were talking you were told “back in the zone”. Any target for trips away, pizza or drinks would be unrealistic and when hit would be taking away due to invoices not been paid by the client within the target timeframe. I’m still owed a pizza :) Poor commission structure that lines the pockets of the higher ups (directors). 15k threshold. Anything over 15k you earn 15% but the directors who get jobs on that 50% of your earnings. (Earn 40k. You get 20. 15 is no earning. So you get 15% of 5k.) No support during covid (no care calls or equipment) and pay was taking away at the end of March before covid really hit Ireland. No career advancement. They will tel you it’s an meritocracy company but then they hire in high level people and tell you there’s no position and you need to do more (even tho your over achieving on targets) No HR department.

Advice to Management

Instead of rejecting people’s advice when leaving and criticising people take it onboard and learn.
