I worked at Alcimed full-timePros
- they are growing and therefore hiring constantly, so you have a great chance to be employed
- they prefer young people that come directly from the Grandes Ecoles. This makes them a good backup if you don't find anything else
- there is a mentoring system within the company that is supposed to help you through the first monthsCons
- As they mainly hire young and unexperienced people, working there feels more like in elementary school than in a professional consultancy with 20 years experience. Many people behave immaturely, especially the management.
- It's exclusively the consultants who are made to pay for mistakes made by the management
- Low salary. They exploit the fact that youngsters don't know how to negiciate!!
- The "fun at work" culture is forced, not real fun.
- The flat hierarchy doesn't exist. People are very taken by the perceived power their are being admitted by occupying management positions at a young age and with very little experience. In combination with their lacking maturity, they exploit these positions to the fullest, caballing against each other. This creates an atmosphere of hypocrisy. You really need to be prudent about whom you talk to.
- Consultants are not at all valued and much rather discarded and replaced than supported and developed
- Despite a set of official evaluation criteria people are evaluated on astonishingly different bases - mainly personal preferences.
- Extra working hours are taken for granted. If you don't work in the evenings and on weekends, you'll have a hard time delivering by the deadlines
- The reports and advices delivered to the clients are often farfetched and not at all based on good research. Often, time is too tight to gather reliable data. Concultants tend to invent figures just to satisfy their managers.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Learn how to manage people - it's a lot more than just putting them under pressure! There is a lot of potential in this company if only they valued their staff and got rid of all this hypocrisy! Pay them well, stick to promises and don't exploit too obviously!Doesn't RecommendNeutral OutlookNo opinion of CEO
