I worked at Alliant Techsystems as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

The interns get real work.... as long as you intern in the science and engineering department. Interns in the Safety and Mission Assurance and Processes groups will hate their experience. I actually used my engineering degree all summer.

Cons

The only thing people seem to talk about at work are layoffs... seriously. Also the 1hr drive to work is miserable.

Advice to Management

Branch outside of the solid rocket world. Letting Aerojet by Rocketdyne will inevitably be your downfall. Mark my words.

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

    Pros

    You are a part of the space program. Great people to work with. Very flexible work hours and the ability to work from home.

    Cons

    Senior IT management had a lack of vision and when the space program started winding down, they kept more management than needed and fired the people actually doing the work.

    Advice to Management

    See what is coming down the road and make adjustments before it is to late.

    I worked at Alliant Techsystems as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Coworkers were very helpful and friendly. Both of my superiors were very willing to clarify things when I had questions or needed help. Got to handle explosives which was cool and I worked on a missile system, which was quite interesting.

    Cons

    The company had just lost their bid to use the government facility. So there was a lot of uncertainty around the office and people kind of had an attitude of apathy/depression. My experience was good, but the company seemed to be on the decline.
