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

    Pros

    I have worked for the company for 14 years - they are the most caring, friendly, family style company I have ever worked for. I started out as a rookie auditor fresh out of manufacturing/laboratory work and have never looked back. I have progressed through the ranks completing many courses/training along the way and the support throughout has been second to none. I now manage a team of 24 auditors and enjoy sharing my experience/knowledge to other auditors.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

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

    Pros

    Having only started recently with the company, it's clear to see that they value their employees and their contributions. The interview and onboarding process was easy, painless and I was kept informed every step of the way The company is expanding, which considering the pandemic you would not see happening for most employers! So it's an exciting time to come into the business Everyone has been welcoming and supportive both professionally and personally

    Cons

    So far, I can't say there is any

    I have been working at Alcumus full-time

    Pros

    Alcumus is an brilliant place to work. The products are innovative, forward thinking, and class leading. Whilst the culture is outstanding with an integrity, honesty and drive to consistently improve . Alcumus is an industry leader and as such the quality of staff is excellent. This in turn facilitates the cross pollination of new ideas and the sharing of knowledge. Decisions within the business are always for the long term good and not about quick fixes or ways to get around an issue quickly. I have worked at Alcumus for 20 years and can honestly say I really enjoy going to work and am proud to be part of a really important business that functions to help customers and keep them safe, whilst also caring for one another in the Alcumus family.

    Cons

    I genuinely can not think of anything negative.

    Pros

    - Everyone there is really nice - Good place to work if you are just starting up your career, and want to learn about working in an office environment - Annual company party at the Celtic Manor

    Cons

    - The food in the canteen is dreadful and way to expensive - No clear progression path - There is a ‘click’ in management and if you are not in that click you might not do so well

    Hi Thank you for the review- it's lovely to read that everyone is really nice and you feel it's a supportive culture for people starting a career in an office-based role. We also appreciate the feedback on career progression- we've had 19 internal promotions already this year but we could definitely shout more about it. The new career pathways site should help make opportunities to develop more visible too!

    I have been working at Alcumus full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Although there are around 500 employees in Alcumus, there is a family feel to the company. There is no hierarchy on ideas, and this is motivating when you feel like you have ownership of improving the company you work for. The company is expanding and on a journey to becoming a more software led company, this is hugely exciting!

    Cons

    Not working for a household name, we are looking to change that though!

    Pros

    Fantastic induction despite the incredibly challenging times (Corona virus) we're currently in. There is a clear drive for the welfare and happiness of all Alcumus employees. The People Success Team are key to this and have made me feel very welcome.

    Cons

    Because I have to put something: The company laptop is a little dated.
