Good product, great market share. Great CEO
Lack of training and mentoring, no direction given from the offset by management apart from crucifying you on numbers. Worked there for 6 months and line manager never spent more than 3 days with me (in office and in field). Empty promises made at interview stage. Sales management team all out for themselves and coverage their own backs at the detriment of new starters. Basically i was the fall guy for the management team!!!!! DO NOT GO THERE!!!!3Alcumus Response7y

Great learning opportunity to learn new technologies as the company transitions to the future state architecture on AWS. Great opportunity to interface with people of different backgrounds and experiences.
Most times decisions were made by leadership team and decisions trickled down to the individual teams. Many people complained about this and the management team has show a bit of improvement in that area but recently, opposite indicators were coming up again. Highly distributed teams - sometimes this causes schedule nightmare in the mornings eastern time.2Alcumus Response4mo

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

Team and Management - Great team to work with and a supportive management that has your best interest with wanting to see you succeed in any future employment. Working Flexibility - Management understands that the team has a life outside of work. In result, it helps us feel valued and allows us to focus on the work during working periods and not merge personal and work life together.
Resources - Requires more resources for the company to succeed in its targets. Green Grass - Not everyone is a good fit.

Fantastic company to work for, real family feel where everyone knows their worth and contributes to the common goals. Management team is first class and really are interested in developing people.
Nothing that we can’t work through with great teamwork.5Alcumus Response4w

Great opportunity to learn, and grow as an investigator. Work load can get stressful, but it will teach you how to manage your time. If you invest in the company they will invest in you. Raises are good.
Everyone has too much on their plate including the CEO causing disorganization and mediocre training. Team environment is decent but could be better due to everyone being overworked during the 8 hours. Starting pay is below average.2

The company permits a very flexible work-from-home policy. The pay is good. It has a great vision and it is accompanied by an amazing strategy and projects. The team is very engaging and passionate. I feel privileged to be part of it!
It is a global company so sometimes it is challenging to get people from different time zones together.4

Great onboarding and induction process - which cemented my view of Alcumus as being a people centric business. A fast paced environment - with ambitious growth plans that are exciting to be a part of. A positive and collaborative culture at all levels making teams feel proud to be part of the journey we are on. Good benefits package - good work/life balance! But ultimately - its the people!!
Some may struggle with the pace of the business - embrace that and enjoy the ride4Alcumus Response3mo

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
Thank you for taking the time to leave this review and we are truly grateful for all your kind words! We work hard to provide an environment that enables progression routes, development both personally and professionally and maintain a stance that our people are at the heart of all our success, which is led by core values. We are on a fantastic and ambitious growth journey and we are happy you're a part of it.

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.
Because I have to put something: The company laptop is a little dated.1Alcumus Response4y
