I worked at Alion as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

They go as far as they can to provide the best conditions of employment and tell upfront what to expect from the particular employment situation

Cons

Perhaps due to the size of the company and complexity of their services, management feels far and detached, especially when working in remote locations

Advice to Management

Devise some way of connecting with remote employees so they feel more part of the team

    I have been working at Alion full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Generally positive people
    -Technical staff know what they're doing and are competent in their field

    Cons

    -The company declined to pay me for 10 hours of overtime worked when I was asked to work 40 hours of overtime in one pay period.
    -Overtime is straight time, not time and a half.
    -The company asked me to be involved in a competitor's lawsuit instead of issuing a blanket statement.
    -The company is refinancing.
    -They expect you to invest in company stock, but it has gown down to under $10.
    -They do not pay for tools to access the Internet at client site, and they remove VPN access if not active after a certain time.

    Advice to Management

    Do not tell people they will be getting time and a half when they won't.
