    I worked at Alliant Techsystems

    Pros

    Pay decent wages and provide specific training for job duties. Decent benefits for full time employees. Most co-workers seem to be engaged in the mission of making high quality ammunition for our troops.

    Cons

    Policies on attendance, job performance, zero tolerance late punch in and others were applied very subjectively or not at all. I was never impacted negatively or positively by this, but feel that policies should be enforced equally in every instance. One of the biggest negatives is an obvious lack of concern for employees lives outside of work. I am a single parent with two young boys and no family or support group in the area. I was hired for one shift, told the day I reported for initial training on a friday that I would be on a completely different shift as of the next following monday. I had one weekend to try to find day care for overnight shift that I was going to be on , rather than the day shift that I had been hired onto and had arranged daycare for. Three time in the 3 years I was there, my shift was changed like this with as little as 2 days notice. Staff was continually reduced with the remaining individuals expected to cover all the duties of the staff that was let go. Mass layoffs of 250 people or more were common. When I was layed off , I lost all my health care and day care flex spend funds that I had set aside under a special pre-tax savings plan, because I had no opportunity to spend them before the end of the current year and they were "use it or lose it" plans regulated by the government ,but administered by the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to the needs of your employees and their quality of life, rather than just trying to squeeze every drop of production out of them for your own purposes. No money available for raises or cost of living increases for the common worker, but large bonuses for middle and upper management, including reportedly, a $15,000,000.00 bonus for the CEO. No wonder the IAM union was able to get voted in.
