    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.

    I have been working at ALTEN

    Pros

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

    Cons

    As 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 ManagementAdvice

    Improve 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.

    I worked at ALTEN

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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