    Current Employee - Marine Engineer in Boston, MA

    I have been working at Alion full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Management is pretty flexible with hours with respect to work load. They don't really micromanage. Good benefits and continuing education assistance. Government work is pretty flexible so the work load is never overwhelming.

    Cons

    No opportunity for advancement. When someone gets to the point that they would be up for a raise, they will not give it or they will make a simply insulting offer. This has caused 3 of my fellow engineers to leave for other positions. Then they interviewed and hired engineers straight out of college who they could pay less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the employees that you have and show more loyalty and appreciation of what they do.

    I worked at Alion full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Financial 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 ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with your employees.
