    I worked at ALTEN full-time

    Pros

    if you are an intern you can work for Alten otherwise it will be mess for you.

    Cons

    There is no proper on boarding process, they are so strict with rules don't like people who think out of the box. No clear career path, no more responsibilities. Even you are experienced first you need to improve yourself in Alten after that maybe they can assign you a little task. There are lots of gossip, everyone is complaining about the company but no one take a step to change the environment. They do not care about...

    Cons

    Alten manager loves to give a lot of promise but they never keep it. the pay is horrible the salary increase max 1% per year. They take out of your holiday 3/4 days while the customer has more holidays they will never train you even when you need it for the job they don't care about you as you are a money making machine you are treated as a second class citizen by the customer all the jobs you are given by the...

    I worked at ALTEN full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good level of responsibilities for starters

    Cons

    - No real values, no company culture - 12h a day minimum (overtime not paid) - Bonuses seem to be good, but at the end you'll have nothing (read carefully each row of the contract)

    Advice to Management

    Build a company culture.

    I worked at ALTEN full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    None, horrible company... The only benefit is that you can arrive in the UK with a job

    Cons

    This an amateur company, the "managers" are unprofessional and rude, they just think about milking money from customers and don't really care about the project or their consultants. They mistreat consultants as sub-class type of employees. The salary is ridiculous low compared to the market. Make yourself a favor and stay away of this amateurish place.

    Advice to Management

    Shut your operations in the UK. I have b never seem a ridiculous company like yours, I have no idea how anyone still buys a project with alten.

    I have been working at ALTEN full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Exposure to big customers. Good work-life balance (thanks to the clients).

    Cons

    They don't care about you. They make promises but not deliver in them. Very long notice period. No progression. Your role is just customer's support. Salaries below the market. You don't have a real contact with Alten. They just want to make money with you. Almost no benefits, just statutory rights.

    Advice to Management

    Care about the employees, they are the base of your business. Improve salaries and sick days.
