What they don't know won't hurt us.... Head em up... Move em out.... These aren't the Droids you are looking for......

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at XL Alon

ProsBenefits were good, salary was ok....

ConsCompany seemed unwilling to remedy situations where there was blatant signs of employee hostility. Seemed more willing to cover it up when it was reported. Some individuals were put into PM positions without apparent necessary skillsets. PMs at times were dishonest and lacked integrity when it came to letting employees know when their task orders or contracts were coming to an end.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake integrity a prerequisite before putting PMs in place...

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Felt more like a body shop than a consulting firm (as an ALON employee)

Project Manager (Former Employee)
Washington, DC

I worked at XL Alon full-time for more than a year

ProsI enjoyed the team that I worked with and my client was fantastic. The client saw us as an extension of themselves and not just "contractors".

ConsAlon (I can't speak to what XL Alon is like now) did not have a teleworking policy. Corporate HR seemed more interested in protecting the company than supporting the employees. It felt like they cared about hiring people to fill positions than they did hiring the right person with the right skillset. There was a great deal of turn over.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
