    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.
