Most Commented

  • 401K Plan  (24 comments)

    “Insurance company that manages the plan charges monthly fees that eat into your return on investment. Most companies pay this fee - not the employee.”

  • Vacation & Paid Time Off  (13 comments)

    “It is about the same as other federal government contractors where you accrue a certain number of paid time off hours each pay period.”

  • Paid Holidays  (6 comments)

    “Employees are immediately eligible for paid holidays. You are given a full eight hours on all federal and roving holidays.”

    The benefits package is comprehensive and excellent. Medical and dental benefits kick in immediately. 401K is matched 100% up to the first 3% and 50% every percent thereafter. Life insurance is available. Overall the best benefits package I’ve seen.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Acquisition Principal in Arlington, Virginia

    You get a 100.00 reimbursement for monthly transportation to and from work, but you have to use the company credit to put the dollar amount on the card, and then you file a very complex expense report to get the money reimbursed to the company credit card. Also, the 401K plan is managed by an insurance company that charges month fees to the plan participant. So, after I left, I rollover over my 401K to Fidelity roll over IRA which charges no fees at all. Most companies pay for this monthly fee. Insurance companies do a very poor job of managing 401K plans and the fees really reduce your return on investment so you end up losing money.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Fairfax, Virginia

    Comprehensive package that is better than most packages offered by similar companies doing the same type of information tech work with the federal government and department of defense and military contract work.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Washington, District of Columbia

    Most companies deposit the 401K matching dollars with every paycheck or at least every quarter. Alion holds the funds for up to 21.5 months before they are deposited. Big net losses by the time the employee receives the money.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in McLean, Virginia

    With the Veritas Capital take over of Alion in 2015 the Company is now contributing to the employee The 401K plan, good gesture considering the competitive market.

    No sick days. 401K matching is okay.
