Current Employee - Software Design Engineer in Norfolk, VA

I have been working at Alion full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Generally pretty flexible, decent benefits, competitive salary (at least when starting)

Cons

Financial situation unclear and not very optimistic, little room for promotion as an engineer, government contracting in general is not (to me at least) an ideal system at all, feel disconnected from the company as a whole, feel a lack of communication (though this is probably related to specific managers and divisions)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat employees less like a contract asset and more like a valued employee

Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

    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.
