Awful leadership, no strategy, Missing professional engineers
IV&V engineer now working in GE Hitachi Team Lead (Former Employee), Norcross, GAJanuary 7, 2014
Pros: decent benefits
Cons: awful leadership, no strategy, no vision, poor communication, management through fear and intimidation, cya culture and toxic environment
Any smart person can dupe the senior management because they are not professional engineers.
You can sign their NDA and then resign and join their customer, Guaranteed you would not be sued because the Senior management would not like to show/discuss their own dirty linen in court.
They spend time on exercises that have no benefit.
They support work – more... product that is not complete or correct
They have no future plan because they made a horrible mess of a major foreign customer project.
They are extremely unreliable, liars, short sighted.
They provide no job security and use intimidation tactics.

("They" = Altrans Senior Management)

opportunities for advancement for "yes-people" and "good soldiers" who never speak up or attempt to contribute. – less

Horrible place
Validation Engineer (Current Employee), Norcross, GASeptember 26, 2013
Pros: no
Cons: a lot
A place to learn and exercise politics. Good teachers and students.
The management treats engineers - key contributors to the project as dirt, but bill customer over $100 an hour. The trouble monster project has wasted huge resources and $$$ and continues. No policy and procedure, someone’s communication is the rule and frequently changes. Engineers – more... quit or going to leave, a number of testing leads/managers were executed in three years. If you submit resignation letter, preparing leaving right away! The customer is extremely mad. – less

Worst company I ever worked for
A Mule (Former Employee), wrong placeJuly 19, 2014
Pros: none to mention
Cons: all of the below and much more
Consultants are treated as an expandable resource and poorly compensated. Management is incapable and must be replaced in whole. There is no appreciation from management and no cohesion between mgmt and consultants. Poor to none-existing strategy. Purely money driven. Big difference between HQ and local mgmt. My recommendation; do not even apply!

Exciting job as Advanced Business Manager
Advanced Business Manager (Current Employee), Paris, FranceMarch 10, 2014
It's almost impossible to describe a typical day as a Business Manager at Altran, because this job is made of surprises, and cover a large scope of activities.

But if I had to describe it, I would say that a typical day begins by a business meeting with my co-workers, in order to find solutions and inform each others about business opportunities.
This – more... meeting is followed by one or two hours spended calling candidates, prospects, customers and also answearing to requests for proposals.
At lunch, I used to eat with customers or consultants.
Then I spend the afternoon in customers meetings.
I comme back at the enend of this afternoon at my office to receive one or two candidates.
And I close my day with administrative tasks. – less

Very high achieving and intelligent people. Great projects.
Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee), Bath, ENGJanuary 12, 2014
Pros: in the centre of bath, development of complex safety-critical systems
Cons: heavy dependence on a few clients, hence uncertain future.
I have been at Altran "Intelligent Systems" division (formerly Praxis High Integrity Systems, Bath, UK) for 6 years. They are the developers of the SPARK computer language, which is a safety/integrity-enhanced version of Ada and therefore probably the "safest" and highest integrity programming language in the world. For the last 6 years I've written – more... SPARK code for the UK's air traffic control toolset (iFACTS) and the experience was amazing, the team spirit and camaraderie were second to none. The hardest part of the job was probably keeping up with the rest of the incredibly high-powered technical staff, which was arguably the most enjoyable bit too. The safety culture is second to none, with a heavy emphasis on "getting it right" in a no-blame environment where everyone is encouraged and helped to succeed.
Unfortunately heavy dependence on a few big clients makes the business somewhat fragile, which is why my CV is posted here now. – less
