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

    Pros

    Based on my experience working remotely: This company truly treats it's people ike they are business partners, not just employees. I am not in management, or in a senior position, but I am treated as if my role is just as important.
    - Pay is good
    - Great and low cost health benefits
    - Decent vacation and PTO
    - Treated like an adult with responsibility; there is no micromanagement.
    - Diverse and highly qualified work force, with endless opportunities to grow professionally and in knowledge
    -

    Cons

    With this company being so big, and international, it sometimes takes time to get the information or answers you need. In the beginning, things seem unclear, but be patient.

    Advice to Management

    Improve transparency, and upfront and open communication instead of waiting for the employee to ask the questions.

    Pros

    Tons of talented technical people. Compensation and benefits are good.

    Cons

    Altran corporate office in Paris doesn't understand the North American business model. Company is going through major downsizing, closing offices and laying off tons of people. Company loses more business than wins due to pricing model.

    I worked at Altran Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company is big with lots of talented people and has various type of engineering services.

    Cons

    If you don’t have any project to work and charge your hours, you will be laid off on same day no matter how good you are and how long your services in the company. Very poor planning on management.

    Advice to Management

    The management should have good plan ahead and consider their workers as an asset to the company.

    Pros

    Free soda and fruit provided

    Cons

    Heart of Altran North America is a company called Foliage, which was acquired by Altran some years ago. Foliage was a family company, still many members of this family are in management at Altran North America (brother in law, siblings etc.), these poor managers keep some other incompetent managers who can back them up blindly, so there is a strong coalition to keep their chairs by supporting each other unconditionally. The company is managed with a lot of incompetent people who took the positions due to their family links to former company founders. Lack of management, lack of vision, short-term plans and a lot of politics, untrustworthy from many perspectives. There are a lot of inappropriate situations are going on within this company behind the curtains. They act as a staffing company, things change dramatically faster than you would ever think when your project is over.

    Pros

    People in immediate work team are terrific. Free fruit, soda/water, and bread appreciated.

    Cons

    Simply put, the place is a mess. Good people let go in the name of cost savings while poor performers remain. People treated like objects. The benefits are poor to fair at best.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together. The place is falling apart around you.
