    I worked at Alexander Mann Solutions for more than a year

    Pros

    Great talented people doing great work. Good conditions Good work ethic On the surface great values from the top

    Cons

    Favouritism shown to some staff - not that I was treated badly but some were treated way way better for no apparent reason. Average to low pay Low work life balance Equity partnership has meant degraded values and unnecessary pressure on staff

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Five weeks annual leave.

    Cons

    No investment in training / development of staff, lack of business development and an overworked staff-force. Untrustworthy HR function, who seek prior agreed outcomes and brush complaints under the carpet. The management (I had 11 managers in my time), install a culture of fear and bullying, personally speaking this included threats of redundancy (based on 'perception') and abusive late night calls. Work life balance...more like work work balance. Fed-up, burnt-out and bullied!!! Stay away.

    I am obviously really concerned to read your comments and would like to understand more. I am particularly concerned to read your comments about bullying as this is something that we take very seriously . I hope that you will contact me in confidence at sheena.cartwright@alexmann.com and I can then investigate your experience. Thank you.

    Pros

    Strong relationships Inspirational CEO who built the company from nothing to waht it is today Good CSR program

    Cons

    Slow unwilling to respond to concerns & complaints against managers Resistant to change Inflexible unfair reward and recognition scheme Under resourced support functions Bullying culture tolerated Performance is measured on a 1-2-3 basis. 1 = 10% of the company, these people get a pay rise. 2 = 70% of the company, these people get nothing. 3 = 20% of the company, these people get a performance plan. If you have no work life balance and grind away every weekend for the year answer the phone on vacation and work to 8 every night then you might be a 1 If you have a family or a life you will always be a 2

    Pros

    Honesty. Managers are up front and honest regarding the account outlook and career development. Comp is in line with marketplace. Solid opportunity to move up with hard work and good results. Ability to go somewhere else to gain a promotion if one is not available here and be welcomed back with open arms if the grass isn't greener which it usually isnt. Good work life balance. Benefits are very good here. Growing company on its way up.

    Cons

    In some instances it seems being remote may be harder to get promoted into management level. As with all companies there are some managers who play favorites. Most managers do not and are very merit based.
