Senior Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), New London, CTFebruary 29, 2016
Pros: Was able to telecommute from home when needed
Cons: None
A typical day at work was very busy doing multiple tasks throughout the day. I was in charge of running the facility at every level which I started doing back in 2013 and learned quite a bit on how everything is run. Management was very supportive and the co-workers were very pleasant and easy to work with.

Average at best.
Senior Acquisition Analyst (Current Employee), Pentagon, DCJanuary 12, 2016
Pros: Mission of supporting men and women of the United States Armed Forces.
Cons: No company loyalty, No growth opportunity, Pay freeze, Cut out of award fee bonus, Poor leadership and management produced drop of stock value from $40 to $1 per share when sold.
Although an "Alion employee," this is in name only for pay, benefits, and tax purposes only. Am really an employee of the contract. When the contract ends, employment with Alion ends. No opportunity for advancement. Have never discussed future growth opportunities in Alion with any Alion leadership. Lost over $40,000 when Alion stock tanked and Alion was bought at $1.25 per share. Think Enron. Pay frozen for past 2+ years. Cut out of government award fee bonus. Would not recommend Alion as a place for employment unless it's the only option until find something better.

Excellent work environment
Network Administrator (Current Employee), Pascagoula, MSSeptember 16, 2015
Pros: Friendly environment
Cons: Horrible top level management that should have been fired if this were a public traded company.
The Pascagoula office is a wonderful workplace. The people are very friendly and helpful. It is a laid back environment where you do not have constant stress.

For my job title, there is no advancement unless you are willing to relocate.

The company as a whole is horribly mismanaged. Stock prices have been driven down from $44 a share to being bought out at $1.19 a share. As bad as this company has been managed, there has been no change at top level, who still receives bonuses.
