I wrote this review almost a year ago. ATK laid more people off this year, too. No hiring here. I looked for a job somewhere else and would need to take salary cut if I wanted to stay in Tampa Bay. So, I do not have anywhere to go, but with the first real opportunity I am out of here. If I move somewhere else, it would affect my family, so I am staying at ATK for now. Employees stay here because of pension benefits they get beside 401K match. Most employees have been here for several decades. Now, most engineers have something to do for several weeks, a month at best, then they are on overcharge number for a week or two, and the cycle repeats. No work stability. Everyone works at the slowest pace possible in order to extend their stay here. I finish my task in 2 days and the rest of the week I pretend to work. It feels like free money anyway :). So many smart azzez among managers with ideas that go nowhere. It looks like managers are just trying to be loud and keep talking like never before. Some folks are busy.
