    I worked at Alion full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, ESOP, first level managers believe in keeping their customers satisfied, flexible work schedule, multiple work locations, can work remotely depending on customer.

    Cons

    Financial situation (read the 10K report), extreme concerns about billings to the extent that if you do agree 100% with the executive concerns you are out no matter how much book of business you can bring in, constant worries about cash flow, executive management seems only interested in pleasing outside bankers.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your employees.
