    Current Employee - Consultant in Coventry, England
    Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at ALTEN full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It's a good starting point for someone coming out of uni as it will give you the opportunity of working in big companies, edge technology, several job opportunities and the possibility of changing countries. It's a good trampoline to find a better job after a few years

    Cons

    As any other consultancy company they are focused on the client and not that much on the consultant. Salaries are lower than other colleagues working in the same position but for the client directly, bonuses are not always as good as promised. Trainings are counted and only given if absolutely necessary.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We are happy to see that you enjoyed working with Alten and always appreciate hearing from our former employees. Having experienced fast growth periods over the last few years, there have been times indeed where workload was high for the management staff, with large teams of employees to manage. However we have set and structured our organisation to ensure that today, every business manager does not manage more than twenty engineers. We will keep working hard to ensure we guarantee the best possible employee experience.

    Neutral Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at ALTEN full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Opens up opportunities in big companies, specially if you're moving from abroad - Multicultural company - Possibility to change projects after a couple of years and experience different companies - Consultants are very united and friendly

    Cons

    - People don't stay for long, so expect your manager or team leader to change every 6 months. With this, all the relationship that you had built with your previous manager/leader will have to be rebuilt from scratch. After some time, you start to lose interest, as this is bound to happen again. - Pay is below the average, but gives people good opportunities within some great companies
