Current Employee - Senior Engineering Consultant in Paris (France)

I have been working at ALTEN full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Large scope of opportunities, jobs and client, locations. Allow to accumulate diverse experience without having to wait for internal mobility opportunity in a big company.

Cons

Quite poor salary package, not a good image amongst engineering peers, and you will not often been given responsabilities corresponding to your level of skills / experience by a client. The same for recognition...

    I have been working at ALTEN full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - get you a job really fast if they have client who wants you
    - get you a chance to step in the area where there are quite a lot of opportunities

    Cons

    - lowest salary amount all the consulting companies in the area (Sophia Antipolis)
    - lie about actual salary and living cost
    - little improvement for career
    - ignorance from management (who have no idea of your working performance etc, just managing paper work so that you get a contract from their client. They are doing nothing more than work agency's job)
    - hire large percentage of foreigners so that they have no idea how much themselves really worth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since the nature of ALTEN's business is to provide engineering consulting services, please bear in mind there are two keys in the business: client who pays for your engineers' work, and engineers who actually do the job so that the business can run. The existing bad reputation will simply disgust current and potential engineer source, and eventually becoming less competitive amount other consulting companies.
