Avoid, unless you are unemployed and desparate for a job.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Independence, MO

ProsProud to help our military by manufacturing small arms ammo.

ConsVery poorly managed.
Employees are allowed to switch from one job to another in less than 6 months, resulting in many people who barely learn a job, or carry responsibility before moving on.
HR sides with management...always. If employee reports to HR, they are retaliated against by the manager.
Horrible company culture at this location..
They play this game to 'Recognize Revenue' by briinging in raw materials, charging the Government back for it before product is built.
The best thing that could happen to Lake City is if another contractor took over operations.
Please get some decent managers in here.
Understaffed IT department resulting in company critical applications being written in Access and excel spreadsheets.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a good hard look at what is going on. Make some decisions, please.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Very positive experience at ATK. Teams are small, and the communication very good between engineers and managers.

    Senior Electrical Engineer (Current Employee) Clearwater, FL

    I have been working at Alliant Techsystems

    Pros: There is no so much overhead like in other government contractors of similar size. System engineers and engineers have good communication. Requirements are flown down… Cons: There are no so many technologies being developed in Clearwater. Therefore, if their products get replaced by competitors', they will… Advice to Senior Management: Overall, good job. Try to diversify people skill wise so they can switch between different projects. Do not share projects between facilities that are thousands… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
