    I have been working at ALTEN full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    They were very efficient in the contracting and contract finishing process. Everything was smooth and professional. The relation with my consultant mentor in the company was satisfactory and very polite.

    Cons

    There was no real Cons in my relation with them. They provided what they were asked for and nothing else. The only formal trainning required by law (safety and health trainning) was provoided without incidents.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They provide different profiles for every situations. They can offer also turnkey projects in IT and IT Consulting areas. It is a very professional company to obtain these kind of services.

    Pros

    The work/life balance depending on the client. There isn't more pros, it's a really bad company to work for.

    Cons

    No career opportunities and benefits if you work in a client.
    The company values and culture suck, there aren't any events and I only know the colleages who work in the client with me.
    Each manager has 100 employers to attend, he is very busy to dedicate 1 min to you.
    Poor salary.
    The worst company I've never work for.

    Current Employee - Consultant

    I have been working at ALTEN full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The most advantage is getting experience in multinational/structured companies.

    Cons

    You are otally selled to the customer and you get a salary equal to a 1/3 of what customers pays. When you're assigned to a project you don't exist for your company, if the project finishes you'll be again 'meat' to be selled!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more consultant with a little bit of experience
