    Good as it gets when working for a consulting company

    Senior Consultant (Current Employee)

    ProsThe staff are quite responsive and professional. Following of the project is good. The people that I had contact with it were friendly

    ConsAs a consulting company based on outsourcing of services, the career evolution is obviously poor and the formation related to the work in the clients could be improved.

    Advice to Senior ManagementImprove the opportunities for formation and try to diversify the career paths on the technical level.
    Technical workshops could be done yearly to promote Alten as a center of excellence in engineering.

    Good company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Madrid (Spain)

    ProsBig company with a lot of resources and many benefits for employees. They let you do your work and respect you as professional.

    ConsSometimes management is too distant. Specially when doing outsourcing, you can fell alone and not as informed as you would like to be.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSincerity is something that many employees prefer instead of being quiet. Tell your employees the bad news always as fast as the good.
