    Pros

    Company does well in promoting and gaining alliances with a diverse group of manufacturers. Consistency in wages, benefits, strategic goals and communication made this a "family" I enjoyed working with and for.

    Cons

    ATK closes many plants, disrupting many lives, and often without (what looks like) solid business reasons.

    Pros

    It is easy, the day goes by very fast, funny people, decent pay for the area. comfortable temperature year around.

    Cons

    Some things are really tedious, supervisors there think that they are something special. They pit people against each other for lead positions and if you aren't interested in competing, they will make things hard on you.
