    J'ai travaillé chez Alcimed à temps plein plus de 8 ans

    Avantages

    J'ai très vite apprécié la grande autonomie qui m'a été confiée, les valeurs de l'entreprise qui correspondent aux miennes et l'intérêt des sujets sur lesquels on travaille. Tout au long de mes 8 ans chez Alcimed, j'ai apprécié les process mis en œuvre qui assuraient le professionnalisme de chaque mission, ainsi que la formation qui m'a été dispensée, indispensable pour progresser. J'ai appris énormément de choses et j'ai eu le plaisir de faire avancer des clients prestigieux. Enfin, les gens et la capacité de travailler en équipe sont des réels atouts de la société, je suis d'ailleurs encore en contact avec un très grand nombre de personnes connues au fil de ces 8 années. Au total, cette expérience a été déterminante et aujourd'hui encore, plusieurs années après être partie, il m'arrive encore de me servir de choses que j'ai pu apprendre chez Alcimed.

    Inconvénients

    Peu d'inconvénients, j'en suis partie au bout de 8 ans car mes envies professionnelles avaient changé et je suis restée en très bons termes avec l'équipe (avec laquelle j'ai d'ailleurs retravaillé)

    Avantages

    Work with mid-top level executives at midsized to large companies in technology fields like biotechnology and pharma to name a few. The variety of project types Alcimed will take on is more broad— often taking on, successfully, projects that other firms will evade or will say “can’t be done”.

    Inconvénients

    The sales and pricing for some of Alcimed’s more tailored projects is sort of like shopping for fine goods in a marketplace where you don’t know the language: clients undervalue and underestimate the time required to correctly execute projects, And therefore not properly value the consulting services. Alcimed sales teams will often flex on budgets to acquire business on the sales side. The result is an overall lower contract value and sales-per-time inefficiency that depresses earnings. If pricing was properly adjusted Alcimed might have better resources to deploy towards employees and growing the business. Many negative Glassdoor reviews artificially result from fake reviews by competitor mid-size firms — and employees who didn’t cut the mustard when they learned they would have to work and also use their brain in consulting.

    Avantages

    Some (few) people do actually like working at Alcimed, it seems to be very dependent on the relationship with their boss so choose your office and team very wisely... Most junior colleagues are young and very nice which is the best part of working here

    Inconvénients

    There is so much wrong in this company it is hard to know where to begin or when to stop. My main advice is to contact ex-employees before accepting any offer, and ask them why they left and what the culture/work environment really was like. - Most people quit within the first year or two because of the toxic work environment senior management has created. During about one year at Alcimed I have seen 4 employees leave during their trial period (first 3 months!), about 15 other in similar position as I leave from various offices, and other extremely senior people that were with the company for 15 or 20 years also left; and so many others of all seniority levels quit I can't even count them all. Basically about 10-15% of employees quit in a one year period... Honestly, this is all you really need to know, if so many people are continually quitting at all seniority levels, you should not join this sinking ship. - Even after all these people quitting, senior management refuses to put themselves or their practices into question. This is true for most things in Alcimed, senior management always believe they are right and will not listen to feedback or concerns from junior employees. Top down is the only direction anything goes here... - They hire young graduates who do not know how to negotiate and pay them well below market salaries; yet somehow charge prices similar to the biggest consulting firms; leaving employees wondering where all these profits are going and why they do not have respectable salaries... - They push employees for unreasonable hours and expect them to go above and beyond everyday, and to be intrinsically motivated somehow, even considering the low salary and limited evolution perspectives - During the hiring process they heavily emphasize that Alcimed is an international company with a startup mentality. THIS IS A LIE! I have literally heard a C-level person say: "we will not adapt to how other countries do business we are bringing the french way of doing business to their country" - this is the exact opposite of being an international company!!! As for 'having a startup mentality' Alcimed is extremely process driven and set in stone with their ways of doing things; no room for feedback or improvements; Very French way of operating... - Senior management has lied to me and my colleagues multiple times, they manipulate their employees, trick them out of bonuses or even getting reimbursed for expenses (which is absolutely unacceptable and unethical)... Basically shown no regard for human decency or respect for their employees. They likely will not fire you but they will use you until you have nothing left to give and quit - Also they clearly posted fake reviews on Glassdoor that have the same key words as their job postings! This is incredibly duplicitous and immoral; it gives you a keen insight on what kind of people they are. I have also heard some colleagues say that their managers push them to write positive reviews on Glassdoor (also super unethical).. Quitting Alcimed was the best decision of my life! Do not make the same mistake as me and waste your time, energy and mental sanity working here, find a job literally anywhere else.
