ATK

IT - Technology (Former Employee)
Minneapolis, MN

I worked at Alliant Techsystems full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThe divisions are mostly managed very well with good leadership
They have good & dedicated workers
Government contracts are cutting edge
The projects are interesting, challenging and fun
Pay and benefits

ConsCorporate - Dilbert Morale
Good people are leaving
It seems like 'Dedicated-Competent' boomers & early Xers are being targeted
New C-management has erratic behavior - the 'Stop telling me what I don’t want to hear.' world Watch out for this illness - apathy then entropy

Advice to Senior ManagementWhat is the big picture future for ATK in 3-7years?

Need for more M&A & Contracts
Take Risk! - accountant's will save you out of business

Try to keep talent - they bring energy, passion and enthusiasm - it is contagious!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
