    Pros

    I wish I had any pros to list however other than average benefits and pay; there is nothing positive to comment.

    Cons

    When Alion purchased Anteon, the caring nature of management went right out the window. Anteon used to work diligently to ensure staff on contracts ending had new positions or at leads and created a wonderful environment to work in. However, when Alion came in, management could care less about the staff, changed infrastructure to a less sensible structure and cleaned house of many staff. People who had been with Anteon for 10+ years left in masses due to this and I was glad when I did. The environment turned from a place I enjoyed working (total of 8 years) to somewhere I was miserable in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to care about your staff as people, not just a number. In addition, stop acquiring companies when you are unable and ineffective as merging successfully.

    I worked at Alion as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    They go as far as they can to provide the best conditions of employment and tell upfront what to expect from the particular employment situation

    Cons

    Perhaps due to the size of the company and complexity of their services, management feels far and detached, especially when working in remote locations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Devise some way of connecting with remote employees so they feel more part of the team
