    Pros

    Alten wants their Consultants to grow with the Company. They really do! Alten actually provides three weeks of paid vacation the first year and pays 100% of medical benefits.

    Cons

    Nothing to report at this time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep putting employees first!

    I have been working at ALTEN full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent management - excellent team. Building a start up is exciting and frustrating at the same time - but ultimately exhilarating. Being in on the ground floor of building a new brand and US presence and redefining what it means to be a career consultant is super exciting.

    Cons

    We're starting from the beginning in a very competitive market - it's all about patience.

    Pros

    they care about their consultants, good following of their consultants.
    it's true some companies like Aster pay more but they don't care at all about their staff, if your projects end they will fire you.
    alten in another hand follows its consultants and always try to find the best position
    they have managers, recruiters and hrs to help you.
    great assurance and CE
    great environnment

    Cons

    outsourcing company
    good following depends on the manager
