    I worked at Alion full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I wish I had any pros to list however other than average benefits and pay; there is nothing positive to comment.

    Cons

    When Alion purchased Anteon, the caring nature of management went right out the window. Anteon used to work diligently to ensure staff on contracts ending had new positions or at leads and created a wonderful environment to work in. However, when Alion came in, management could care less about the staff, changed infrastructure to a less sensible structure and cleaned house of many staff. People who had been with Anteon for 10+ years left in masses due to this and I was glad when I did. The environment turned from a place I enjoyed working (total of 8 years) to somewhere I was miserable in.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to care about your staff as people, not just a number. In addition, stop acquiring companies when you are unable and ineffective as merging successfully.

    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.
