    Pros

    This company strives to be the very best in the client service industry and they push employees to demonstrate their best in terms of product/service quality and commitment to delivering an A+ client experience. This means that employees are constantly challenged to develop and get better and achieve greater things. But they reward those to rise to the challenge and your growth potential within the firm is limited by your own desires and strengths. You can do anything and be anyone here. Very different from a stuffy organization where tenure (and not talent) seems to me the number one thing people are measured by.

    Cons

    They are very strict in terms of work product quality and this can lead to challenging times. And you will be pushed to do greater things here. Definitely not a place where you can hide in the shadows and coast.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on development of your people and make quicker decisions on the ones that can't make or don't have what it takes to be a part of alliantgroup.

    Pros

    There's a real sense of community at this company. In the years I have been here, I have made many long term friendships who are now like family. You really get what you put in which is why I don't get a lot of the negative reviews. It's not a free handout - but no real job or any job with a real career track is easy. I can only guess that some people who had such a bad experience, has had no prior jobs. I have worked elsewhere and know what it can be like. There are very few places where you can work hard and get rewarded beyond your wildest dreams. Most of my friends working elsewhere have to work hard and can hope for measly raises (if they are lucky). Those who work at alliantgroup know that if they do well, they can be rewarded very handsomely while doing something very rewarding.

    Cons

    You do have to do some real work. This is not a place where you come to snooze or put up your feet and hope that you have won the lottery. Some of these negative reviewers probably were hoping to browse the internet and hope to collect a paycheck. Reality check, guys... You also have to learn to speak up. In an environment of type A individuals who are all high achievers, you can't be a wallflower. Take the initiative and voice concerns - good and bad. Management has done a good job in taking the feedback and making substantive changes.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to promote from within and you're doing a good job with all these continued perks. The yoga and pilates have been great; I can't wait for the new gym!

    Pros

    I've been at this company several years now and management has taken a lot of constructive feedback into account. I see how management styles have really improved and they are always adding to the amenities offered to everyone. For those of you considering a job here, here are a few highlights: -you can grow very fast in this company as long as you are passionate about what you do and are motivated to do better; -it's a really fun culture - we do 5k's together, yoga at the office, dinner parties, etc. it is like no other corporate environment you have ever been in; -you have exposure to not only different company CEO's but Congressmen, Senators, etc. - what a great opportunity for anyone who wants to widen their experience; -enjoy the ride and it can be a really rewarding one.

    Cons

    You just have to balance work/life out yourself and be proactive to moderate your priorities. No one forces anyone to do anything; you get however much that you put in. This is the case anywhere you go and it's no different here. warning: People get so passionate about what they do here that you can't help but be sucked in along with it.

    Advice to Management

    You have matured a lot and the improvements all around have been noted. Thank you!

    Pros

    This was my first job our of college so my pay was minimal, but the experience was good. Almost like working for a fraternity. They are serious about their work, but have A LOT of fun at the same time. Met a ton of great people and am appreciative for the experience.

    Cons

    If you left at 5 you were looked down upon. They did not appreciate "clock watchers." Expected to work long hours. No management at the time had kids so they were not understanding of a life/work balance.

    Advice to Management

    I'm sure many things have changed, but I know management was fairly immature at the time. Balance the work and fun more.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to employees. There are so many dedicated, bright and loyal people on teams across the organization. Always remember to take a minute to meet new employees and include as many employees as possible in the team building and group discussions. We all give our best each day and it is important to us to be included and have a voice.

    Pros

    Health Benefits, causal dress code, lunches/dinners, off season perks There is a lot of pros if you are able to put your career above anything else. There is room for growth with a very high learning curve. This is a very challenging job that requires lots of effort and perseverance that can reward you handsomely.

    Cons

    Long hours. heavy work load, communication, very little work life balance, turnover

    Advice to Management

    get on the same page with other departments and get more training

    Pros

    This is a true meritocracy. I have never been at a more competitive company and I do not think one exists. I have measurable goals and realistic expectations here and it is a breath of fresh air.

    Cons

    This is not a "nine to five" place. Plus, you will work with a bunch of "know it all" grammarians, workaholics, and perfectionists...

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to filter potential hires better. I have been a part of new/growing companies prior to alliantgroup... the message from day one was "remove 'this is not my job' from your vocabulary". alliantgroup does not make this point clear enough for new folks. My advice to the alliantgroup decision makers, use the following: "The alliantgroup experience is easy - work hard, reap rewards. If you start to coast, you will get left behind. If you want a true meritocracy, come see us. If you think your credentials are a skeleton key to success, move along. We judge you on real, measurable performance metrics."

    Pros

    It is absolutely amusing to me to see some of these negative reviews. When you work here, you are told up front that there are longer hours. This is not an 8-5 job, and the directors and owners are clear that alliantgroup is for the elite consulting minded, client service minded professionals that want to get a seat at the table. If you want to check in and check out, you will hate it here. If you like to work hard, not wait a year for 2-3% raise that is across the board, and you want to be rewarded for what you put in the firm, you will love it. Also, working with young, very intelligent people is a nice plus. Average age in the firm is around 30. Makes the parties really fun. Casual work environment, office pranks, paid lunch, and lots of firm outings. Bottom line, if you want a 'job' and not a 'career' do not apply. If you are looking for a company that you can hang out in the corner and not be noticed, do not apply. If you are money motivated, this is the place to be.

    Cons

    -A lot of young managers who need management training, but they are working on this. - Due to growth, the office is pretty tight and it gets pretty loud, but we are moving into a new building. -Paid lunch is a nice perk, but the food is not that great. Needs salt bad.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring more senior level managers to help with day to day management.

    Pros

    Unlimited opportunities to advance for those who are willing to work hard and appreciate the firm's culture. Once you have proven your value to management, they compensate you well and truly take an interest in you as a person.

    Cons

    The culture of the firm centers around working late hours. Those who prefer to work early in the morning, but leave early (6:30 or 7:00pm), are seen as unfit for management-level responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    If you want employees to be in the office from 8:30am to 8:30pm, then you should set the example by doing the same, not by showing up at 2:00 in the afternoon.
