    I have been working at alliantgroup, LP full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Prior to working here, I used to work at a firm that promoted 2 individuals (out of 500) a year and gave the usual 3% pay increase. I was introduced to alliantgroup through one of my best friends, and started working here about 2.5 yrs ago as an administrative assistant. Since then, I've been promoted three times (and given a raise 4 times, and it was far more than 3%)! This is the only company that allows you an opportunity to grow so quickly. Early on I expressed what I wanted, and since then I've been given the tools and training to get there!!! I have had the opportunity to travel to some of the most exciting places (Hawaii, Chicago, New York, California). We get free lunch every single day, top performers get invited to exciting events, there are yoga classes every Wednesday, and we work out of the most beautiful building in Houston.

    Cons

    It wasn't easy. It took hard work and dedication to achieve my goals. I am confident that if you're passionate and have desire, upper management will do whatever it takes to make you successful.

    I have been working at alliantgroup, LP full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are many pros to working at alliantgroup. If you want a career and love being challenged, this is the place for you. I worked at five companies before joining alliantgroup so I have a good amount of other companies to compare to. alliantgroup takes the cake across the board. I have family here, not coworkers and I walk out everyday feeling as though I contribute to a cause that actually matters. How many people can actually say that? The thing I like best is that there is no ceiling as far as your growth. I've been here 3 years and I'm 10x the professional I was when I walked in and still learn/grow everyday. I'm challenged daily and therefore, this job is extremely rewarding. I have amazing mentors and friends here and you will find the same. Health/wellness is a really big thing here and we are in the process of building a gym. We even have a Director of Health & Wellness who is available for questions/advice daily. In addition, healthy lunches are served daily and I frequently attend the weekly yoga class that is hosted at our building (among other fitness classes/events). Overall, I would recommend this company to anyone who is looking for a career not a job, a place where they can grow/learn and life long friends/mentors.

    Cons

    i don't really have any negative things to say. I honestly LOVE working here and plan to stay for a very ling time.

    I have been working at alliantgroup, LP full-time

    Pros

    Free lunches, good benefits. A good stepping stone for new graduates looking to start a career.

    Cons

    I was holding back in sending my review on my experience with this company. After reading the positive reviews, I can not keep the silence. Candidates beware! Upper Management is all about favoritism. I have seen this time and time again. Most of the consultants promoted to a lead role in implementation lack managerial skills. These are the individuals you would be reporting before you reach Upper Management (Sr. Managing Director and Sr. Director) levels. If you are lucky and get assigned to a group (in implementation) lead by a decent sr. consultant, then your experience at alliantgroup will be a decent one. The only problem is there are so few of them! Your success will be in reflection to the quality of training you receive. So hope that you are with a group with a good lead/mentor type individual. They continue to hire candidates that have just graduated lacking practical business and lead experience because they are the most moldable. They grow their management organically. They can't hire experienced lead consultants because they do not want to work here. I have tried to help out the Talent Acquisition team with referrals but have not been successful to find anyone that wants to work here. alliantgroup does not have the best reputation. The hours are ridiculous. I can see why they do hire people right out of school. They are young and can handle the hard core hours needed during the training period and tax seasons.

    Advice to Management

    There is no point in providing advice to these individuals. They will not listen. They will continue to have human capital growth problems due to their toxic culture environment.

    I have been working at alliantgroup, LP full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are some really great people here - smart, personable, funny - just awesome people to work with. I've made some great friends here - I'm sure bonding over misery may have had something to do with it. The lunch catering really helps cut down on my grocery bill.

    Cons

    The pay is a joke. They under pay you, work you to death, when you become unhappy (or fall out of favor - whichever comes first) crap on you until you leave, then hate you for leaving - 'tis the cycle of alliantgroup. This is a VERY political work environment - the most so in Implementation. If you aren't in the higher ups office every other day telling them how great and wonderful they are good luck making any kind of move up in the company. Be sure to listen for buzzwords such as 'escalate' 'bubble up' and 'calendar management' while you drink the kool-aid with a forced smile on your face. Oh and don't forget to hit 'reply-all' on company wide emails because they watch that too. When they send Work Anniversary emails, the funny thing is there are a ton of one year anniversaries and hardly any anniversaries higher than that... I wonder why. I've been here around 6 months - it only took me a few weeks to figure out that this place was not somewhere I wanted to work and I am now looking at other jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Employees have lives outside of alliantgroup. I think the company would be better served trying to foster that and ensuring that employees lead balanced lives. The rate of burnout here is extremely high because you can't keep people at this company and their work falls on the others left. I work far too many hours for far too little pay - also not matching 401ks at all is a joke. How about we stop putting fresh flowers in the lobby and put the money towards something your employees actually benefit from.

    Pros

    The opportunity is limitless at alliantgroup and training is ongoing. The people you work with are the most intelligent and the highest caliber there are anywhere. A career here is exciting and rewarding if you want a REAL career with a dynamic growing company.

    Cons

    It can be difficult for people that are looking for just a job where you can check in at eight and leave at five without applying yourself and trying to learn and grow. We need the best of the best to work here and I wish I knew more people to refer and share in the opportunity!

    Pros

    Fast-paced environment where you do good work for businesses while working with some of the best and brightest people that you will find anywhere.

    Cons

    It's a rapidly growing firm and it's a challenge to find enough of the right people to take on the surge of new clients and maintain repeat client relationships.

    Advice to Management

    Keep standards high, do not compromise on making the right hiring decisions. We need more people, but not average - they must be great.

    I have been working at alliantgroup, LP full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Simply put, this is a tremendous opportunity I've been given. Coming from a large corporation with typical archaic culture, I'm finally at a place that lets me by myself and challenges me to achieve versus sit and collect a pay check that was the norm at my past job.

    Cons

    Is definitely a different culture from what I came from..but its so much more rewarding and refreshing. There is a lot to learn, but that's what I expected with this change..not for the lazy.

    Advice to Management

    don't listen to the naysayers..often times people want a banal existence and want to impute that on those around them.

    I have been working at alliantgroup, LP (More than a year)

    Pros

    it was an interesting experience. i got some consulting experience out of it. the only problems with this was that there were long hours and since it is a fairly new company, the salary didn't much up very well with the hours. other than that it was a good starting job.

    Cons

    long hours. not enough pay for the amount of hours put it. the credit for the lunches was not that great since they barely gave any credit.

    Advice to Management

    management needs to start getting with advanced technology and fix the issue with the long hours and stop paying so little.

    Pros

    -pay is decent, but considering the hours, it's not worth it -nice building

    Cons

    -REALLLYYY catty environment amongst the women -travel is presented as 30-50% but it's more like 70% -it's ALWAYS someone's first/last day everyday. -associate is a fancy title for "administrative assistant who are scape goats"

    Advice to Management

    This is not normal and masking negative reviews by having internal employees post "raving reviews" is obvious.
