Some nice people work there
Company is going backwards fast. So many people leaving and a blame culture there now. Not like it used to be. Senior Management just worried about themselves.6Alcumus Response11mo
Thank you for taking the time to leave your review on your employment with us. It’s disappointing to hear that you feel your experience hasn’t been positive, particularly given your length of service. We believe that culture is an integral part of who we are, and a place where you’re able to bring your whole self to work, and we are proud to be inclusive and diverse. We recognise and reward employees for their contributions and believe in celebrating success. Our glassdoor reviews are at the discretion of our employees and former employees and it is important we take the time to understand both the positive and constructive points made as we will do so here. The business is growing and evolving, and we continue to implement a number of programmes this year to develop our teams at all levels. We look to provide the support and tools for everyone to achieve. If you wish to discuss this matter further, please contact me, Rowanne.email@example.com

You have to suck up to managers to get anywhere, some people’s job performance is shockingly bad yet are praised by senior management. You will rarely know what’s going on and it changes constantly. People are leaving / joining all the time. Senior management team appear to be on different pages and some come across as very entitled. Lots of work done is pointless and never used, IT systems are terrible and make every ones job harder. Really frustrating and demoralising place to work.Alcumus Response4y
Hi there, Thank you for your feedback and for taking the time to write your review. We are working really hard to provide all of our employees with a clear and transparent career path that is structured around competencies and behaviours aligned to our values. We ran a rising stars and rockstars program within our Safecontractor business last year and will be launching our new career pathways offering into the business shortly along with a multitude of other development opportunities. I’m sorry to hear you haven’t felt that you have been able to benefit from these during your time with us. As a business we strongly believe that performance issues should be dealt with in private hence why it may have looked like these were overlooked however we have a clear review process in place and regular 121s to support those who are struggling to improve. Alcumus is a growing business that has a number of new starters built into the headcount plan each month to support our business strategy. Unfortunately, as with the majority of organisations, we do have people who leave the business for a number of reasons (personal and professional) too with a lot having an open door with us should they wish to return. You are right that the business is fast-paced and there have been a lot of changes recently. We have ambitious goals laid out for the coming years and we are working hard to ensure that these are communicated effectively via the CEO roadshows, conferences, company intranet posts and business update sessions that are in place. I am sorry to hear that our efforts did not meet your expectations at this time. Once again, thank you for your feedback. It’s important for us to learn about the experiences of both previous and current employees so that we can make our working environments better. On behalf of Alcumus, I wish you the best in your future endeavours. If there is anything you like to add, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me directly: firstname.lastname@example.org

Great people across all of the offices who are really helpful and welcoming. There is a genuine feeling that the company is interested in your personal development which is more impressive given the Group's rate of growth. The legal team is an exciting place to work given how varied the work is. Plenty of responsibility and develops your skills in all areas. Sam and Suzie are great people to work with. Senior management are fully integrated with the rest of the office. Very anti-bureaucracy and hierarchy.
Going through a period of real growth and change so if you enjoy a more settled role and workplace then this might not be for you.1Alcumus Response4y

Company that is passionate about delivering good service and is growing year on year in size and revenue, testament to it's excellent customer retention rate. CEO and Senior management team are passionate about embedding an ethos which puts it's people at the heart of the business.
Honestly can't think of any! Every business has elements for improvement but that doesn't mean it has to be a negative!Alcumus Response6y

The business as a whole is moving forward at rapid pace, which is exciting to be involved with hiring key figures into the business! There are lots of opportunities are available at all levels and the progression here is very apparent from day one. In terms of support, the senior management team are easily approachable should they be needed, which is a refreshing change! The business has a focus on providing a healthy work life balance which has increased my overall performance while I am working.
Currently none so far!1Alcumus Response6y

As has been said - free tea and coffee. Free car parking.
Think a swan, a swan that has been shot in both legs. Looks good from the outside but inside everything is a mess. The IT system is virtually non-existent, with most functions creaking away. The senior management are unpleasantgement are unpleasantgement are unpleasant money-hungry blamers. They do not care about what they sell or their customers, or the staff, they only care about getting as much money as they can out of the customers and giving as little as possible to the employees. I've heard the senior management make jokes about the customers. I'm pleased I got out when I did and I know others are.1Alcumus Response7y

Cannot put into words how much I enjoy working at Alcumus. They tick all the boxes - Opportunities to grow and develop, exciting project opportunities, inclusive, completely open and honest right up to the CEO. Their values and goals are brilliant and I 100% believe that their staff are all appreciated and are at the heart of everything that they do. Success is shared and everyone works hard to be successful. There is genuinely a 'one team' approach and in my very first week the CEO met with all the newbies and made it clear that his main goal is to ensure everyone is supported and listened too - we hold each other up not knock each other down, everyone has bad days and we need to look after one another. Alcumus and it's Senior Management Team is a breath of fresh air.
(Also a positive!) Currently going through growing pains - Alcumus is growing fast and it's taking the teams a little while to keep up in terms of processes and global communication. However, this is improving!1Alcumus Response2y
