I have been working at Alliant Techsystems full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Great people willing to work hard. Unfortunately due to management foul ups and inability to
control customers extra work is required frequently. The work is challenging and technically interesting.

Cons

High overhead, poor management in an extremely competitive low growth industry.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Cut overhead. There are too many managers making our corporate overhead charges extremely uncompetitive.
