Machine operator and preventative maintenance (Former Employee) – Clearfield, UT – December 12, 2017
A typical day of work would start off with daily stretches which gave the opportunity to greet your fellow coworkers and set the tone for the day, this I thought was a great way to start the day. Everyday had Goals to achieve and reaching those goals was both one the hardest part of the job but also the most enjoyable when met.

Associate production operator (Current Employee) – Clearfield, UT – November 27, 2017
The work after awhile becomes very repetitive with not much of a chance at climbing the ladder. Most opportunities are lateral movements to different areas. They do pay well and it can be a challenging and exciting experience.
Can be challenging work, but advancement is limited
SME Chief Engineer (Current Employee) – Elkton, MD – November 18, 2017
Engineering work can be exciting and rewarding, however the hours can be very long with little additional compensation. Advancement is also limited to non-existent. Overall the work environment is friendly and most engineers (junior to senior) are involved with problem solving.
Test Technician (Former Employee) – Northridge, CA – November 7, 2017
Unqualified management , job security is very low and pressure is high, not friendly atmosphere, mostly pretending they are doing their Jobs. I do not recommend this company for serious people searching Job security and advancement in their future.
Accountant (Former Employee) – Minnetonka, MN – November 3, 2017
Company is being bought by larger defense company. Take into consideration whether your job will survive post-purchase. Your will learn a lot, but the culture and environment will suck the life out of you. It is the least fun work environment I've every been in. 9/80 schedule is nice for some; for me it was tiring.
Consulting Engineer/Contractor (Former Employee) – Gilbert, AZ – November 3, 2017
I was working there as a contractor, so got no benefits. As such, my experience is not typical of what regular employees would have. I liked the work (satellites are pretty neat) and people and thought I was paid fairly.
I was treated very good while I was at ATK. I regret leaving the company. The people were great. The management group was very good. I enjoyed working there and regret the choice I made to leave. I would go back in a heart beat if I could.
