    I worked at Alliant Techsystems (More than 5 years)


    Exciting and challenging job, reasonable benefits, potential career advancement, several locations around the USA, can learn many skills from working on different projects and with many talented people.


    Too much politics and management changes, each wants the job to be done their own way which confuses the employees, can be very stressful work environment and demands long working hours, benefits always changing for the worst

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers based on their knowledge not friendship and connections

    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Alliant Techsystems (Minneapolis, MN).


    One day visit to talk with the Vice President and then joined a group meeting. I had met senior people in my previous position and they asked me to come to for a visit to their headquarters. The visit was not structured and was treated as a formality. However, the team could never get final approval to make an offer. This went on for several months as they tried to get the position approved.
