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

    Pros

    Great culture: Alyn sets the right tone of purpose, openness and qualified optimism which rubs off on the executive.

    Cons

    However strategy is not only MBAs financial strategy, ROI , EBITDA, high level targets and words encouragement from the executive. Unless Sovereign Capital and the CXOs just want to take the money and run, senior management would benefit from appointment of experienced executives that really knew the business they were managing . It would be a better, sustainable business.

    Cons

    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.
