Pros

The compensation is above average, working conditions are adequate, leadership is marginal. It seems to thrive on very reactionary thinking/planning.

Cons

If you don't mind not getting any respect from the upper management "team", you'll have no problem thriving in this company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Perhaps if the management team would listen to the people who are actually putting into place your concepts, the company would be a better entity.

    I have been working at Alliant Techsystems full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Over all good company to work for. Seams to be growing

    Cons

    Poor management directions. Can not stay focus, to many changes, seam like every week management tries a different approach. Managers are not held responsible and direction given is terrible

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to get they act together and focus on the big picture

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook

    Pros

    Individual contributor seen as valuable and indispensable to the team. Made to feel as part of family and on the critical path. Every day was unique from managing tradeshow events, supporting business development initiatives, and analyzing strategic objectives to participating in barrel testing, professional development, and vendor selection process.

    Cons

    Employees don't seem to have long tenures at this company. It seems that if you are not well liked (and you may not know if you aren't) you will be cut from the team without warning. They go through a purge almost every year where they get rid of the unchosen ones.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest in your review feedback. Don't candy coat or set people up for failure by creating a false sense of security.
