I worked at Altum full-time (More than a year)
Several recent reviews are not objective enough: bad ones by disgruntled former employees then swift responses.
The work environment is pretty good. There are a lot of solid team members. You can make an impact on the job. The CEO is a really nice guy and he communicates with everyone in a very respectful manner. You will grow and learn on the job.
There are exiting plans and potentially great things that can happen at this company.
The technology side is managed wonderfully. When I was hired I was sort of thrown to the fire, but I was mentored well. The mentoring throughout my time there was exceptional.
The main issue that prevents it from being 5 star is there is a sense that maybe great things won't happen. The company has grown and shrunk several times over the previous 5 years. It use to have 100 employees and now it is down to the 20s. It is hard to give a company 5 stars when that happens.
Advice to Management
The technology side is managed wonderfully. I wouldn't change anything there.
There is some drama in other departments that should be minimized, because too much drama can negatively affect the work environment.
It would be nice to see all leaders in the office regularly, because that leads to better team unit.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Altum in February 2011.
it was very good and nice and very descriptive. very well formatted questions. couple of phone interviews and finally face to face interview. Several people technical as well as manager interviewed
