    I have been working at Alion full-time for 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.
