they're good to their people
Senior Systems Engineer (Former Employee), Clearwater, FLJanuary 26, 2014
Pros: usually all the conveniences exercise room, filtered water somewhere, parking
Cons: some dinosaurs around but they have their niche
Been around and ATK tries to staff to survive the lean time and not do the fatal "layoff the extra employees" when times go lean. If you had to compare their layoffs to most other contractors you'd have to give them an A for effort. They work with employees as long as their getting productive effort from them and work with personal needs.

good place to work. Lots of layoffs over the years
Repair Maintenance electrician (Former Employee), UTJanuary 22, 2014
Pros: good pay and vacation time
Cons: always looking over your shoulder
Overall it is a good place to work, there is lots of programs and hoops that you have to jump through, but in the end it pays off. Lots of Layoff's over the years and it makes it hard to concentrate on the job when you are always worried about your job,

a Typical work day
Pellet Charger (Former Employee), Independence, MOJune 20, 2013
Pros: good bennifits
Cons: had to keep your mouth shut at all times to keep your job, it was like being in prison.
You come in as early as they tell you too. You work all day to make the daily quota, They set that to pretty much whatever they feel like. If the teams are doing to good on a certain unit, they break them up and pair them with someone else. You di the same thing everyday. It does not change. They didn't give the same opportunities to everyone. You have – more... to know someone to get ahead in the job, and you could not voice your opinion on something without getting into trouble, Overtime was murder and a lot of us never really spent time with our families like we should have. If you were a single parent they did not try too work with you on anything, you just had to take a point or find away to be there on time. Always looking for a reason to fire you. I mean always.. – less

Fexible and Fun Place to Work.
Technical Eng (Current Employee), Socorro, TXDecember 11, 2012
Pros: great environment
Cons: depleting work load
The Team of 4 arrives and we all have a meeting to see what the day entails. We all are fexible enough to do each others jobs to get all the work done in a timely manner. Management alway has an open door policy and the communication is constantly flowing.
The hardest part of the job is seeing the workload decrease on a monthly basis.
The enjoyable – more... part of the job is the location. We work in a small town and the testing facility is on a mountain. Its beautiful scenry and full of wildlife. The Personnel I work with are some of the most hard working and deticated employees you could ever meet. – less
