It was a lot of fun being a part of the space program, but lack of vision hurt the IT department.

Pros

You are a part of the space program. Great people to work with. Very flexible work hours and the ability to work from home.

Cons

Senior IT management had a lack of vision and when the space program started winding down, they kept more management than needed and fired the people actually doing the work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

See what is coming down the road and make adjustments before it is to late.

    I worked at Alliant Techsystems as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Coworkers were very helpful and friendly. Both of my superiors were very willing to clarify things when I had questions or needed help. Got to handle explosives which was cool and I worked on a missile system, which was quite interesting.

    Cons

    The company had just lost their bid to use the government facility. So there was a lot of uncertainty around the office and people kind of had an attitude of apathy/depression. My experience was good, but the company seemed to be on the decline.
