    I worked at Alliant Techsystems as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The interns get real work.... as long as you intern in the science and engineering department. Interns in the Safety and Mission Assurance and Processes groups will hate their experience. I actually used my engineering degree all summer.

    Cons

    The only thing people seem to talk about at work are layoffs... seriously. Also the 1hr drive to work is miserable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Branch outside of the solid rocket world. Letting Aerojet by Rocketdyne will inevitably be your downfall. Mark my words.

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

    I worked at Alliant Techsystems full-time for more than 8 years

    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.
