    I worked at Alion full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    competitive salaries, reasonable health benefits

    Cons

    company appears to be financially unstable; HQ management is out of touch with the working level employee, and overcompensated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top management is located in trophy work space. They should trim costs and become co-located with engineering level personnel.

    I have been working at Alion full-time (more than an 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.
