Current Employee - Information Systems Security Officer

I have been working at Booz Allen Hamilton full-time for more than a year

Pros

Large enough to find you any job you want. They are willing to work with you to move jobs if you don't like your current position. Very fair pay.

Cons

Being so large can have its down falls, not knowing who to talk to for what. Easily over-come.

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.
