    I have been working at alliantgroup, LP full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The receptionist at the Irvine office.

    Cons

    If you work here, you've essentially given up your social life, family life, love life and have accepted to being obese. No work/life balance. CEO is a manipulative & arrogant bully. College fraternity at its finest. You will be trained and pushed to your limit and will be given the "sink or swim" spiel. Those who left are all happier, those who stay are all too scared to leave because of the VERY generous pay they give you to keep you in this prison. No amount of food, alcohol or money will ever be enough or worth the misery.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CEO needs to step down. People are leaving because of you and your mini-me. Take accountability that it might not be them, but you.

    Pros

    The interview process is the most positive aspect of the company. The directors and recruiters are skilled in painting a grand picture of a complete failure of a workplace. They are also great at at writing 5-star reviews on Glassdoor.

    Cons

    Meet your "mentors": Desperate, Unprofessional, Micro-managing, Whiny, Lazy, Demanding, and Greedy.

    Meet your "managers": Unethical, Narcissistic, Egotistical, Arrogant, and Awkward.

    The business model has failed. They cannot maintain an acceptable turnover rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management ignores feedback and often retaliates against those who offer advice.

    Pros

    Free food
    Cool co-workers (not management)
    I can't even get to the 20 word minimum for this section, which is sad.

    Cons

    Say goodbye to your life and health

    The worst CEO ever. He calls people out in meetings and tells them how awful they are - he has been know for going off on someone for 30 minutes in front of the entire department.

    Want "high performers" aka people will follow them aimlessly and buy into their "culture"

    Unbearable hours - if you leave at 6:30 you are looked down upon

    Transparency really means the can talk bad about you to everyone

    Illegal hiring practices by management. I once heard my director telling a recruiter no accents

    Awful language and stories daily and are strongly encouraged.

    Tons of drinking and drugs

    Lots of games to be played - if you are asked to go anywhere with management but have other plans, make sure you cancel them to make yourself 100% available.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They wouldn't take advice

    Decent pay, young staff, nice location, catered lunches, sometimes catered alcohol and team events, fully covered benefits, though these aren't spectacular, casual attire acceptable at the office

    Cons

    Long hours, sociopathic management, questionable ethics, biglaw hours expected at half the salary, high school gossipy office culture, highest leadership engages in self-congratulation, basically a sweatshop that tries to convince you they are silicon valley

    Pros

    alliantgroup was my first job out of law school when looking for a different type of legal career. It's a place that is fast paced and high energy that encourages performance, passion and success. You are told from day 1 to be greedy with your career and blaze your own trail, and the culture truly allows you to do that. You're surrounded by professionals who want to succeed and want to work with you to allow you to be better. It is a company that fosters collaboration to promote success for employees and also successful outcomes for clients. The culture is one that fosters individuality, healthy competition and high performance. It allows for your success and drive to shine through and help you advance your career. The team environment allows for you to be surrounded by people who care about your career and success, but also your well being as a person. You are trained and prepared for success through continual education and on the job training to give you the opportunity for success an a long career. The perks of working for the company are unmeasurable-community, company and team events, countless building amenities (parking, cafe, gym, lounges), comprehensive corporate wellness program, incentive structures, relaxed dress code, travel opportunities, etc. Every day, I am happy to go to work, spend the work day with the people around me and continue growing as a professional. I have had a wonderful experience working there and am looking forward to a long and happy career with the blue a!

    Cons

    The year absolutely has it's busy seasons, which can lead to longer hours, but the company structure is set up to support everyone during those times so it does not become a problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep at it! The management of the company is so available to the employees, no matter what level, and that is so refreshing. It's amazing for executives to know your name, have lunch with you, walk around and see how everyone is, and take an active role in people's careers. I can honestly say I know every member of management and they are a delight to work with and know as people and bosses. Kudos to you all for running a company that is so available to it's members and for taking such good care of your employees.

    I have been working at alliantgroup, LP full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The number one reason I enjoy working here is because the career opportunities are limitless. After only 4 months, I have already been promoted and am on my way to gaining even more experience and responsibilities. Throughout my entire time here, my supervisors have been very transparent and constantly let me know what areas I am excelling in and what areas I can improve upon. I am an aggressive person and have always been a high performer and at the top of my class. This company rewards individuals who put in the work and who are dedicated to improving themselves. Another perk is that the company promotes collaboration so there is always someone who genuinely wants to help you and learn from you as well. Lunch is provided every day and so is dinner during tax season. I'm looking forward to learning more about this company and continuing to move up the ladder.

    Cons

    Tax law is a new area that I wasn't familiar with so I was a little nervous whether or not I would be successful at this job. However, there is a multi-week training course to teach you everything that you need to know and everyone enjoys helping you out and making sure you are comfortable with the material.
