The worst of contracting companies in Sophia Antipolis

Product Manager (Former Employee) Sophia Antipolis (France)

ProsNone. There is a handful of contracting companies in Sophia Antipolis. All of them are identical, except how much they pay. Alten pays the least of all.

ConsThey pay up to 50% less than the other contracting company -- Astek. If you have an offer from Alten, just take the name of the client/department to Astek and get 50% more money.

By far the biggest client of Alten in Sophia Antipolis is Amadeus. It is always better to apply directly to Amadeus if there are positions open. Other clients are Intel and Orange.

The management has no desire to build a real consulting services company -- they resort to simply "selling meat (hands)", which works out well for them: they sell you to clients at ~80KEUR/year and they pay you <40KEUR/year.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
