Pros

Aucun. Il existe quelques sociétés contractantes au sein de Sophia Antipolis. Elles sont toutes identiques, à l'exception du salaire qu'elles versent. Alten verse le moins.

None. 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.

Cons

Ils paient jusqu'à 50% de moins que l'autre société contractante -- Astek. Si vous avez une offre d'Alten, prenez simplement le nom du client/département chez Astek et obtenez 50% de plus.

De loin, le plus grand client d'Alten à Sophia Antipolis est Amadeus. Il est toujours mieux de soumettre sa candidature directement à Amadeus si des postes sont vacants. Les autres clients sont Intel et Orange.

La direction ne désire pas mettre en place une véritable société consultante de services -- ils se contentent de simplement "vendre de la viande (mains)", ce qui leur rapporte beaucoup : ils vous vendent aux clients pour ~80KEUR/an et vous paient <40KEUR/an.

They 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.

    Pros

    Man kann seine Rechnungen bezahlen und man hat echte Firmen als Kunden.

    Man kann ohne hierarchische Grenzen mit seinem Management sprechen.

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

    Cons

    Keine Gehaltserhöhungen Jahr um Jahr.

    Kein professionelles Wachstum und keine Spezialisierung, man erstellt den ganzen Tag Berichte.

    Man bekommt ein Drittel von dem, was die eigene Arbeit vom Kunden erwirtschaftet.

    Kein seriöses Unternehmen wird einen einstellen, wenn man Alten im Lebenslauf stehen hat.

    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

    Wenn Sie die Gehälter Ihrer Angestellten nicht erhöhen wollen, erzählen Sie ihnen keine Lügen über schlechte Geschäftsaussichten.

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