    Pros

    I worked for 2 years for Alten in Sophia Antipolis, south-est of France, as business analyst in Amadeus. The location is very good for the climate and for the sea landscape. The workers are young and from different countries. No hard work. High wage.

    Cons

    Old organization. Slow to change project and/or product. Few evolution. People in the area are not so pleasant with strangers. Hard communication with management.

    Advice to Management

    More training for the employers. Make the change process easier and faster.

    Pros

    a lot of projects, few time on the bench, big community, interesting CE, big daily food package, easy going and good balance life and work

    Cons

    low salary, few follow up on the activities, weak salary raise, any knowledge of what we do and so any way to judge our job

    Advice to Management

    when you are in a mission there is few news from the management and the 3 months follow up is never respected
