I have been working at Alion full-time

Pros

Good people at more senior level

Cons

Jamis Software outdated. Running and posting revenue every two weeks instead of every week as in Deltek Costpoint does not catch potential financial problems before month close.

Sub accrual process is the worst I have seen. Wastes countless employees time (two weeks out of month) where they could devote to better budgeting and working the financial health of a program.

No work/life balance.

Advice to Management

Implement new software to run revenue and post financials weekly. You can also have time tickets imported daily to run revenue on if you want to go the distance. But weekly at worst.

Immediately do away with your sub accrual process! Go light, yet accurate with backup pages. or wait extra few days for invoice to come in. You are wasting excessive time and man hours on a process that is no more accurate. Who is paying for all those hours? Also, is not serving company.

    Pros

    Benefits seem adequate. Sufficient coverage geographically and functionally to allow options for mobility.

    Cons

    As with any organization, function and productivity is highly dependent on the regional leadership. Minimal ability to leverage expertise in different segments of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Foster communication. When information is present anywhere withing a company, it should be available to all.

    Pros

    short commute is a plus, technical support provided is outstanding, work is interesting, online training is readily available and varied, benefits are better than or equal to others in similar industry locally, community involvement and support is very good,

    Cons

    no advancement opportunitites locally, pay is somewhat lower than similar indutries locally, caliber of some personnel on staff leaves much to be desired, lack of professionalism by some co-workers is embarrassing

    Advice to Management

    engage the technology available to better utilize the assets you have at both the major and offsite offices, stop spending money on slick glossy company "promotionals" i.e annual reports, sent to the employee-owners and utilize the technology the company has, post it on the intraweb, those who want to read it WILL find it
