FilterSenior Manufacturing Engineer
I worked at Alliant Techsystems full-time (More than a year)
Interesting products, intelligent people, large infrastructure in aerospace products. Work life balance is reasonable, benefits are industry average (some better, some worse). Their 401k offering is above par, good health benefits and employee discounts.
PTO is combined vacation/sick, which isn't great, but average. Wide variety of maturity across sites, leads to some lack of process definition and teaming. Work atmosphere was a bit haphazard at times, with nebulous goals & way too much focus on metrics that didn't really mean anything.
Advice to Management
Recognize employees need support, and don't just expect they have everything handled. Look at providing more process maturity & consistency across sites, organization & divisions. Stop managing from above with useless metrics and start understanding what's going on in the business. Get rid of the "yes men/women" and the buzzword bingo toting managers. Cultivate real talent and push the penny pinchers & micro-managers aside.
