Can give you the opportunity to select your client and jobs, and grow your experience profile as you prefer/ need, but..

Senior Engineering Consultant (Current Employee)
Paris (France)

I have been working at ALTEN full-time for more than 5 years

ProsLarge scope of opportunities, jobs and client, locations. Allow to accumulate diverse experience without having to wait for internal mobility opportunity in a big company.

ConsQuite poor salary package, not a good image amongst engineering peers, and you will not often been given responsabilities corresponding to your level of skills / experience by a client. The same for recognition...

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

The least favorable consulting company in the area

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Sophia Antipolis (France)

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

Pros- get you a job really fast if they have client who wants you
- get you a chance to step in the area where there are quite a lot of opportunities

Cons- lowest salary amount all the consulting companies in the area (Sophia Antipolis)
- lie about actual salary and living cost
- little improvement for career
- ignorance from management (who have no idea of your working performance etc, just managing paper work so that you get a contract from their client. They are doing nothing more than work agency's job)
- hire large percentage of foreigners so that they have no idea how much themselves really worth

Advice to Senior ManagementSince the nature of ALTEN's business is to provide engineering consulting services, please bear in mind there are two keys in the business: client who pays for your engineers' work, and engineers who actually do the job so that the business can run. The existing bad reputation will simply disgust current and potential engineer source, and eventually becoming less competitive amount other consulting companies.
