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 have been working at ALTEN

    Pros

    -multiple missions: in a few years, you can develop a very nice portfolio of skills
    -Alten's size makes it present in all big companies
    -being a contractor in a company offers oftently plenty of advantages
    (focus only only on the job,
    and really interesting IT projects are more and more taken care by contractors only)
    -when you start to be bored, your mission usually ends

    Cons

    -depending on the contract, being a contractor may make you a second-class employee
    -be careful of staying too long on the same mission, otherwise, all advantages disappear
    -often get satisfaction with your management only through force
    (e.g., nobody will listen to you unless you are at the start of a mission)
    -no training (or useless and cheap one)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Show you have at least a little bit consideration for those doing the job.
    -Work on the image of the IT contracting industry

    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.
