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.
