    I have been working at Alcumus Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have enjoyed my time with Alcumus. The company have a strong set of values that are demonstrated from the top down. The Senior Team are strong, with some great new additions that bring an air of positivism. Our business MD is a breath of fresh air and her arrival is turning the business around. I have recently had a tough time personally losing a member of my family and cannot fault the support from my management...

    There is a lot of travel in my role but it's the nature of the role. The only con for me is a mix of IT systems. i know this is being fixed.

    Pros

    Business is in rapid growth, with clear objectives and direction. Team's across this complex business are helpful and willing to get things done. This is a company that if you give them 100% to get 100% back

    Cons

    Communication is an issue which is being worked on

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you're doing clear, decisive clear direction, unification of the business under a single Alcumus name

    I worked at Alcumus Group full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Liked the people I worked with as well as the CEO.

    Cons

    Very backward thinking when it comes to working from home. They have a values system which only applies to management not their staff. You work long hours when it comes to travel with no thanks or benefit in kind. If you need to go to a doctors appointment you get told to make up the time even though you have just worked a 12hour day.

    Advice to Management

    Apply your values to your staff that are not management.

    I worked at Alcumus Group full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Long established company with generally good reputation in the marketplace Experienced and very knowledgeable consultants

    Cons

    Too many layers of management and poor systems therefore slowing down processes Management very subjective, sometimes very unprofessional and seem unable to hold information confidentially

    Advice to Management

    Translate the theory of your people strategy into practice and you will see staff morale increase, less retention and make the millions the investors are breathing down your necks to achieve. Genuine care and concern for employees and their wellbeing goes a very long way.

    Great benefits - Pension, healthcare scheme, reward discounts, credit union. Great culture - Values driven and you’re given the chance to be involved

    Pros

    Great people, great values and going in the right direction! There have been a lot of changes over the last few years and Alyn has made a positive impact since taking over as CEO

    Some of the business units are further on the journey than others with work to be done breaking down the silos that resulted from growth by acquisition
