Alion Science and Technology Employee

"The only saving grace of working here were the people I worked with. They were all wonderful people. The actual work, location, environment, and compensation was pitiful and possibility of progression was nonexistent. Nobody I worked with was happy with their job or position but felt it was too late in their careers to go anywhere else."

Alion Science and Technology Employee

"I worked at Alion a very long time, and watched them grow through acquisition into a directionless behemoth. The people and the customers are great, and the CEO lives in an ivory tower of elites with no vision. He's driven stock prices down 80% in the past 5+ years."
