    I worked at Altran Americas full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    1. Aricent(Formerly) has SFS team for L2/L3 Dev, it's own proprietary stack. 2. Majorly Layer 2, Layer 3 protocols work on different platforms. 3. Advantage is, it is sure that, you will be knowing working of protocol stack from the hardware level. 4. Of course, you can expect some good pay, but caution is they will take full juice out of it.

    Cons

    1. Frequent weekend work, (If you are not doing weekend(sat/sun) work, you will be considered as criminal in the workplace) 2. If you are asking leave => yes, you will be considered as criminal. Please prepare for not to ask leave at all (or) 1 or 2 days max per 3 months, if you are trying to join @SFS, Most weirdest thing is sometimes taking sick leave also kind of crime. 3. Engineering managers ( Not technical managers & bit less ethical) will be delegating the Techies. 4. Almost all high level engineering managers used to spend their whole life there in office, not sure why they consider it more important than personal life? 5. Many customers left using Aricent's proprietary stack in the recent past, so the future of it is uncertain ? 6. Often acquisitions are also happening. 7. I have seen many of resources health got corrupted because of unusual pressure. 8. Bad for lateral joinees. 9. More priority for south indians while hiring(that must be fine), but in official meetings also people will interact in Tamil, (that is very tough for north indians or for who don't know tamil).

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

    Pros

    Cool environment. Really supercool 8-) No timings. Come anytime, go anytime. Manager should be happy with you. Nice helping peoples in other teams. Atleast on my floor. Few managers are really good that they even push you harder to make you learn how things work in upper management. It depends on employees also how interested he/she is knowing uppermanagement. My manager is cool lady. I could spend my entire career under her guidance. She works very hard.

    Cons

    Favouritism Manipulative Managers(although my manager is really cool lady) No equal distribution of task to each team members. One persion is doing 3 persons job while another person is planning for Holiday destination. Lot of managers are old and want things to make it work like 80s. Lot of Managers don't even care how team is working/dealing with tools. They just don't care. It adds to frustation. If your reporting manager is TL/STL, then your visibility is too low to uppermanagement. You don't exist. Aricent Company was much better before acquisituon by Altran.
