    I worked at Alcimed full-time

    Pros

    Excellent projects with big international clients in various sectors, good consulting exposure, and great camaraderie amongst Consultants and Senior Consultants.

    Cons

    Lack of structured on-the-job training and development programs to promote employees personal and professional growth. Lack of a 'team' environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a set standard for all Project Managers to undergo necessary training in project management, people skills, team building and most importantly leadership skills.

    Talented consultants managed by under-performing, inexperienced managers

    I worked at Alcimed

    Pros

    - Young, diverse, talented and international consultants
    - Fun in the office
    - exposure to senior clients, from day one
    - wide variety of assignments
    - good learning opportunity to learn about sectors

    Cons

    - Managers have no management training, most consultants work isolated with little constructive input from their manager.
     - Managers are overworked and leave stuff for the last minute, meaning consultants work extra hours because of the management's lack of anticipation
     - Business Unit Managers' pets get promoted.
     - High turnover means everyone is junior, and there is no one to learn from.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote relevance and diversity instead of the capacity to build slides and presentations
