Come to Sweden
In Sweden, we are happier when something is neither too much nor too little. For this ultimate state we have invented the word “lagom”. [The word “lagom” is derived from the Viking age: To be “lagom” – it should be just enough for all members of the crew]. Swedes may be slightly reserved and usually do not talk too much when waiting for the bus. But if you break through the wall of silence you will be met with friendliness and care. You may be invited to “fika” and treated with coffee and cinnamon buns. Just remember to politely grab a “lagom” integer value of buns!
The best of ALTEN Sweden
In Sweden there are a lot of global companies in different branches from heavy industries like automotive, aerospace, steel and forest/paper to telecom, payment systems and digital music services. These companies are not only global but also in the forefront when it comes to product development and processes. This provides a huge opportunity to build competence and develop in your professional career.
In Sweden, companies have a pretty flat organization which gives each employee the opportunity to be part of, – and contribute to, the decision making processes. This kind of responsibility makes people grow professionally, probably much faster than in rigid hierarchal organizations.
We deliver projects to large global customers as well as strong local clients. We offer our customers a total geographical coverage.

My colleagues! ALTEN has managed to balance having a welcoming and including work environment with growing the number of consultants in Sweden. I really appreciate getting new colleagues and get inspired by their journeys, both within their career and personally. We are a global team creating global products which I think is exciting.
My first impression when I started at ALTEN was that it seemed like you could do everything. Now, 2.5 years later, I still hold that opinion! You can go in any direction in your career within ALTEN, from managing positions to specializing within your field.
My feeling is that our customers offer very varied assignments, so if you want to explore a new career path where there is customer need, you will be supported from ALTEN and encouraged by managers to become more experienced in that area. The team at ALTEN Academy supports us with a lot of educations both from internal consultants and external educators that are held regularly – which by the way is also a good way to get to know ALTEN colleagues from other departments.
