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

If you are prepared to work hard and want a career in sales this is a great place to work. Numerous people have been promoted and get the support and training they need to succeed in their new roles. New ways of working have been put in place to give everyone the best opportunity to hit targets and earn commission. Some of the new bonus incentives are amazing! The company is growing year on year with sets itself ambitious growth targets but it means it’s a company that’s really going somewhere!
There can be a lot of change but that’s why there are so many opportunities to learn and grow!4Alcumus Response3mo

Great culture, everyone is friendly and easy to talk to. Invest their time and money in to you as an employee through training and development. Encourage employees to speak up and aim high within the company. Lots of progression opportunities.

Extremely welcoming and friendly team, a huge part of my continued employment with the Alcumus group has been the working environment, with a friendly and helpful team surrounding me. There are also many and varied opportunities for growth within the company, with many options for additional training and progression. A large positive for me has been the culture of self-driven progression in the company, allowing people to move at their own speed and
The wages are low throughout the early stages of the graduate scheme, having said that, they quickly increase once you reach the final parts.3Alcumus Response7y

- Positive and collaborative environment - Training and development - both initial and ongoing, there are plenty of internal opportunities whether it's in your original team or across the business - Great benefits - access to a GP 24/7, a confidential support line if you need to talk to someone outside of work, access to retail discounts, life assurance, healthcare, a decent pension scheme and a giving day on top of annual leave to give back to local community or charity - Hybrid working - Good work/life balance - Great events - Regular 121s and check-ins with lots of support!
Not a con but it is a fast-paced and evolving environment, so you need to be adaptable to change.9Alcumus Response11mo

Nice office and immediate team colleagues.
The constant changes of direction and colleagues leaving wears you down in the end. There’s no training budget and no opportunity for promotion. Leadership favourites are given grandiose job titles without the experience or expertise to back it up. Those who do proper marketing planning are in the minority. Instead, poorly thought out knee-jerk reactions are applauded and get everyone excited but fail to deliver.5Alcumus Response11mo
