I have been working at Alion full-time (less than an year)

Pros

The benefits are pretty good.

Cons

no direction from managers
no communication

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn how to communicate with your employees. In this economy it’s a very horrible feeling when the managers do not take the time to make sure their employees are taken care of. To have no direction or even know if you will have a job is very disheartening.

    I have been working at Alion full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good medical benefits, fair compensation. Current contracts (IACS) set Alion aside from other like businesses. Customer base is good.

    Cons

    Management is clueless regarding day-to-day operations, however they believe they know-it-all. The financial status of the company is of great concern, almost to the point of bankruptcy. even though this is supposed to be an employee owned company, management takes great strides to hide the status of the company from the employees. There is no regard for vacation/holiday time, management believe you are at their disposal 24/7. The company will randomly change earned benefits (such as vacation time reduction) to benefit themselves.
    Without the IAC contracts, Alion has nothing to offer that competitors already offer. Rates are way to high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get you head out of your butts and start managing the company rather than concentrating about setting themselves up financially. Quit wasting time and money just to satisfy "checkbox" items, these can be handled via teleconferences rather than having a staff of high paid personnel travel to locations.

    Pros

    Location is good and very local to get to and accessible to other business such as food and other stores.

    Cons

    HR needs improvement to help employees and former employees find jobs in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR needs to do a better job of helping employees and former employees to find positions within the company.
