    Pros

    Great people, really friendly, approachable and seem very competent. Get issues sorted really quickly, not that there were many - mostly getting equipment working.

    Cons

    The first two weeks have been quite fast paced, which is not for everyone - loads to do and you have to get it done to keep up.

    Pros

    Support, in so many ways. From the benefits offered to if you need additional support on a personal/well-being level. So much has changed in the company over the past few years but it's all been for the better. I cannot enthuse enough about being able to discuss a chronic condition with my line manager and have support to "feel better" and be encouraged to "be better" at the same time. I've now been able to progress into a job role which is an amazing opportunity and to know the Company listens and does as much as it can for employees just adds to how much I hope I'm here for many years to come.

    Cons

    The fast pace of the business isn't for everyone, but if you love being busy then this isn't an issue.

    I worked at Alcumus full-time for more than a year

    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.

    Hi Really appreciate your review and I agree with you that the people here are fantastic! There has been a lot of positive change over the last 12-18 months so we do appreciate that the pace can feel uncomfortable for some people- glad to hear that wasn't the case for you!

    I have been working at Alcumus full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Really exciting time for the company, lots of investment especially in its people and technology strategy. Plenty of opportunity if you work hard to progress and it's fast pace mean you learn a lot in a short space of time.

    Cons

    Fast pace means you have to work hard and deliver in short timescales (like many companies) and be good at communicating and managing internal stakeholders to succeed.

    I have been working at Alcumus full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The first thing that will strike you enter any of the Alcumus Offices is the amazing people - warm, welcoming and working hard to genuinely make a difference. The organisation is fast paced, ambitious and quick to respond, resulting in a great client service proposition and an exciting place to work. There are many opportunities for personal development and career progression, and self-driven progression is encouraged at all levels.

    Cons

    The fast pace is energising, but if you struggle with change it may not be the right organisation for you!
