    I worked at Alexander Mann Solutions part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    If you're lucky and get the right team/leader then flexibility to work from home. Salary can be good. Ability to move around/across accounts to gain experience.

    Cons

    Leaders appointed via tenure and not ability - therefore leadership at lower levels is extremely poor. Extreme blame culture. 'Face fits' (or doesn't) culture. High workloads and poor work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Take a really good look at the values you want the business to stand by - and act on them. Be clear on accountability and responsibility, and be brave enough to act when your leaders aren't delivering - refrain from blaming staff at lower levels and your clients.

    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Alexander Mann Solutions full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Big company Good client base Good benefits and salary Some flexibility - eg work from home Some really great and talented recruiters in the business, incredibly inspiring to work with.

    Cons

    Excessively high workloads - this combined with a toxic culture exists within some accounts making for an unhealthy work environment. Generally there is a poor leadership capability at middle management level. Favouritism and unethical behaviour Exists from managers, which worryingly is not seen as a problem by senior leadership. Poor work life balance with no consideration or care for physical or mental health (despite all the marketing content that is pushed out stating otherwise). Huge amount of internal politics, very corrupt management. No value placed on people or wellbeing - very cost driven.

    Advice to Management

    Start listening and rewarding your people on the ground (RS and PRS level), there are some truly great people in this business who are treated unfairly. Don’t hire people into management roles who do not display the core behaviours and don’t have the skills required. Do more employee engagement surveys and listen to everything that is said not just a select few points.
