Pros

They make some great products and can be challenging.

Cons

They buy out companies and turn them over. Our location was shut down. They are a little too big now to care about their employees on a personal level. Has become very corporate and political.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't forget the little people who keep the company alive.

    Pros

    You get to work with firearms.

    Cons

    Too many to list. Avoid this place like the black plague, because most prospective employers do when you try to look for work elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    U.S. Government needs to boot ATK and put Remington back in there.

    Good company, great people, but Defense industry outlook is pretty bleak

    I worked at Alliant Techsystems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Top-notch engineers, exciting projects, good support from managers, lean focus throughout organization. Decent work/life balance (9/80 schedule: every-other-Friday off; flex hours). Good pay, benefits.

    Cons

    Constant stress and "re-org fatigue" due to on-going realignment within the Defense Group. Long-term outlook for the group is not too great at the moment (much better for the Sporting Group and Aerospace Group).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More two-way communication (less one-way/directive); more support for continuous improvement activities.
