    Pros

    They have contact with some interesting companies and offer then by this way some experiences.

    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 an 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

    Pros

    You can pay the bills and get to have real companies as Customer.
    You can speak with your Management without hierarchy barriers.

    Cons

    No salary increase year after year.
    No professional growth or specialization, you will be producing office reports all day long.
    You get paid 1/3 of what they get of you from the customer.
    No other worthy company will like to hire you if you have Alten in your CV.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are not going to increase the salary of your employees don't lie to them arguing bad company prospects.
