    Pros

    Young, multicultural environment. Good chances of career development on a short-term for little to non-experienced workers.

    Cons

    The company has a vertical structure. It is hard to develop a substantial career (economically and professionally) in the long-term as an engineer.

    Advice to Management

    Jobs are underpaid, triggering mid-senior to senior workers to continually seek for better-paid opportunities, making the company constantly lose highly valued know-how.

    They hire engineers before the customer service start. It seems to be working in many fields. But I am not sure about it.

    They change in the contact after being signed, change the terms of the project Vereinbarung, pressure on you to accept thier conditions in non ethical way

    I have been working at ALTEN (More than a year)

    Pros

    The interview is incredibly easy, as they will mainly prepare you for the technical interview with their client, the management is generally easygoing.
    They have good clients, at least in the Côte d'Azur area.
    Most of the consultants are fresh graduates from University.
    Really good balance between life and work!

    Cons

    Salary is a little below average, the new reimbursement policy is ridiculous (ticket restaurant for lunch, that are not accepted on client's site).
    Not many senior people among consultants.
    If you have experience you should probably look somewhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Please fix the reimbursement policy!
