    Terrible Management in Nuclear Division... it's probably not going to last much longer.

    I have been working at Alion


    Decent team of 10 engineers in Albuquerque. Some passionate employees. The QA program is solid.


    Where do I begin... the biggest fault of this division is that there's hardly any new business being generated. All key management that searched for new business to keep the company viable have left. Potential projects that could really help the company keep falling apart and bids are lost. The division is falling apart financially. As a result, the employees suffer.

    Speaking of which, the employees are the lowest priority of the company... there is virtually no way to move forward in the company and advance your career. Employees typically work 60+ hours a week with nothing more than a 'thanks'... it's pretty much expected since they're short staffed for the few projects that they have going on. It's a 'work work work... sit on your butt for a few weeks' environment. Don't even talk about raises... maybe $1000 a year at best in the years I've worked here.

    After the recent shut down of the hydraulic lab, the future of the company isn't looking great. Primarily intended to do TEST-WORK for GSI-191, and contracting out all testing to 3rd party labs isn't a great combination. They furlough employees due to lack of work, then put them onto part-time so they don't have to continue paying benefits. A full office and laboratory trickled down to a handful of employees in three years time. Pretty sad.

    Some other things worth mentioning that will really make a new employee's life hell:

    The training program is a joke. They send out project documents for you to "read over" and sign a PDF to say you've self trained. There's no actual hands-on learning or examples to follow. There are no real procedures in place to enforce how tasks get completed. Everyone has a different way of doing things, which makes taking on people's projects absolute hell.

    The file system is a mess, with terabytes and terabytes of data that is totally unorganized and worthless because the content creators have left the company. Files all have arbitrary names that makes searching past reports and test data near impossible. This company does NOT really learn from past mistakes, because there's really no good way to look them up.

    Division Management is pretty terrible as well... highly involved when it comes to overviewing the project and having teleconference meetings, but then dissappear when it's over and work offsite doing their own thing... who know's what. In all my years of working as an engineer, I've never seen such poor management and lack of involvement in project tasks. Good luck!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue, and start managing. Get a real training program for things like doing calculations, modeling, programming, etc... so that people can actually increase their skillset and increase their worth to the compnay. Invest in hiring employees that can find new business. Actually get involved in the work and projects you oversee, besides sitting on the sidelines and just being present for teleconferences and delegating tasks.
