Join it just if you don't have anything else

Expert Consultant (Current Employee)
Mougins (France)

ProsAs a first working experience it could be a good starting point, but maybe not even in that case you would feel very happy about it.
The health care support is good, but it's the only good thing you can receive there.

ConsSo many cons that shouldn't be in a company you would like to work for:
- they lied about salaries and cost of life in the area (not just to me: many colleagues fell into the same situation), making you accept a very low salary
- they will force the renewal of trial period, making you "smell" the dismissal if you don't accept
- no support from the management (in 1y I've been working for them I've seen my manager just twice and one was the same day I signed the contract and I've been introduced to the client)
- they try to restrict in any way possible the days of vacation and RTT, forcing you to loose at least 5 days per year
- no appraisal for your work: within the client, I've been appraised till gaining a better role than I entered, while Alten refused to rise the salary, nor giving benefits.

If you join Alten, do it because you have no alternatives, and start looking for another position as soon as possible.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to train your middle management to be more communicative and try to straighten the level of confidence by your employees, by giving a clear view of career path and establishing positive relationships since the beginning (lying to a newly employed person about the salary power is not the best way to start).

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
