    Pros

    Not many... not to say none
    No matter what you'll hear from the manager trying to hire you, don't believe it. Promises are never followed up by facts.

    Cons

    This company has very low reputation among IT engineers, which is truely deserved. Customers don't trust this company either. Once I asked a customer: "Why do you work with this company?" His answer: "I have no choice. It happens that some others are worse."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice to management is necessary, because they don't care. Most managers have little or no experience (nor skills or even knowledge) at all in the IT business, so that they would not even understand advice.

    Pros

    ALTEN existe depuis environ 20 ans, ils couvrent donc un nombre impressionnant de secteurs. Je suis dans la branche télécoms et les opportunités sont nombreuses. Ils continuent d’avoir des projets intéressants.

    Les projets sont également de grande qualit

    ALTEN has been around for about 20 years so they have impressive exposure to most sectors. I'm in the telecoms division and there are quite a lot of opportunities, and they keep getting interesting projects.

    The projects themselves are also of great quality so it's technically rewarding to work on such projects when you are working on-site for the client. The managers also keep track of your evolution and are there when you need them on anything.

    The annual career-management is also well lead and the process is in place to ensure that things go well over a period of 5 years.

    Cons

    L’inconvénient chez ALTEN, c’est qu’à cause de la taille de l’entreprise, les rémunérations sont assez faibles. J’ai vu quelques ingénieurs très compétents (et expérimentés) assez médiocrement payés par rapport à ce qu’ils mériteraient.

    En plus, il n’y a pratiquement aucune compensation si vous faites des heures supplémentaires chez un client ou si vous en faites plus que ce que le client demandait, ce qui est moralement préjudiciable.

    The flip-side of being at ALTEN is that because of their size, financial compensation is quite poor. I have seen some extremely competent (and experienced) engineers paid quite poorly compared to what they should be getting.

    There is also little to no reward if you do extra hours at a client's site or if you deliver more than the client expected, which is morally damaging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mon chef direct est vraiment très correct avec moi, mais la hiérarchie devrait mieux récompenser les gens qui font le plus d’efforts et fournissent au client un service supérieur à celui qui est demandé.
    A part ça, les affaires sont bien gérées pour une c

    My direct manager is very very good to me, but the upper management should be more rewarding of people who put in more effort and make a contribution to the client that is greater than what the client wants.

    Otherwise things are well managed for a company of the size of ALTEN, there has been a great effort to get consultants involved and make them feel that they do belong at ALTEN.
