Be aware of their financial situation

Manager (Former Employee)
McLean, VA

I worked at Alion full-time for more than a year

ProsGood benefits, ESOP, first level managers believe in keeping their customers satisfied, flexible work schedule, multiple work locations, can work remotely depending on customer.

ConsFinancial situation (read the 10K report), extreme concerns about billings to the extent that if you do agree 100% with the executive concerns you are out no matter how much book of business you can bring in, constant worries about cash flow, executive management seems only interested in pleasing outside bankers.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe honest with your employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
