Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Alion full-time for less than a year

Pros

Job stability here compared to other defense contractors is actually very good, and government demands on contract are reasonable. Benefits are improving. Still has a small business feel (i.e. walk... down the hallway to get a benefits question answered from HR). All the management I’ve interacted with has been professional and knowledgeable. If you want to sit around and wait for direction, this is not the company for you. Plenty of growth opportunities if you’re ambitious.

Cons

This is a true engineering company, and with that will come lots of introverts and different personalities that you have to navigate. Some of these personalities/senses of humor are not meant to be... understood.

Advice to Management

Focus on retention. Professional development/performance management needs to be hashed out too. Employees should be able to recognize peers with some sort of award system.

I worked at Empa

Pros

The kids make the job amazing, watching the impact you have on each individual is very rewarding.

Cons

The director was unorganized and the company had a temporary office.

Advice to Management

At the time, the company was still growing. I'm sure they have made the necessary changes to be a well oiled machine.
