    I love it and it's paying off big time. Like a diamond, my value has grown under pressure - to learn and perform.

    Pros

    A truly "ground floor" opportunity for professional advancement. We are the leader in our field with an amazing growth trajectory.

    Cons

    The first few months of learning, while working in the trenches, resembles the intensity of a military bootcamp but when you come out (battered and bruised) on the other side... you are "special ops" not a grunt. Unfortunately, like special ops training, not everyone makes it so turn over is probably higher than most firms.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The work hard - play hard culture relieves some pressure and keeps us energized but it's time to measure and monitor communications and interactions with a keener "HR" eye.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

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

    Pros

    There is a decent enough salary with overtime pay included, they pay $5 everyday for your lunch from a café that was onsite

    Cons

    No discipline regarding work ethic, no repercussions for those who screw around during work, forced overtime work, lots of coworkers who spend hours goofing around, lots of crude language around the office, managers who don't have a gameplan for workloads, just overall bad work environment that can drive you insane

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the culture of lack of discipline, learn to be more professional, don't badmouth numerous employees behind their backs

    Pros

    A lot of companies say that they will reward hard work and creative thinking. This one really does. I look forward to going to work every day. The opportunities to succeed are endless and the support to help you excel is tremendous.

    Cons

    Tax season can have some long hours, but days off and other perks reward the efforts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and let's keep growing!

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

    Pros

    What i love about alliantgroup is that it can enhance your talents and take them to the next level. My background is in architecture with a focus in sustainability. Working in different architecture firms, I wasn't able to use my talents to the fullest capacity. Once I began working in alliantgroup I saw immediate results finding tax deductions for several clients all over the country who work on energy efficient buildings. Now I am helping our economy, the environment, and architecture as we know it. In my eyes alliantgroup has been a blessing to myself, my passion, and my future.

    Cons

    I honestly cannot say one bad thing about this company, it is the best job I have ever had in my career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have very minimal advice. Since I believe we have a great upper management, but I think if we focus a bit more on setting clear expectations, coaching individuals to improve their performance as well as their professional development, and prepare for the unexpected I think it will be a great way to manage the company.

    Pros

    alliantgroup provides a unique work environment with high energy and passionate employees. They provide an excellent opportunity to grow and gain knowledge across a multitude of industries. Good benefits and a ton of perks!

    Cons

    Hours can be long but the work is interesting and it's easy to make friends with your co-workers.

    Pros

    You really do hold your career in your hands! You will be given as much work and responsibility as you want and can handle, and you will have ample opportunities to advance. In fact, your opportunities for advancement are much more available than in almost any other work place. Your hard work will be recognized. The training group and management give you all of the tools you need to excel, and there truly is an open door policy anytime you have a question. Any time you have questions or concerns, management is always available. On top of that, you get to work with a diverse group of talented, intelligent, and interesting professionals on a daily basis.

    Cons

    The hours can be long at times and the deadlines can stack up, but you are never alone in working through these challenges. While working long hours, typically during tax season, your comrades are there with you working and building camaraderie. You receive lots of project management training to help manage deadlines. Plus, if you ever get too bogged down, all you have to do is raise your hand and ask for help.

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

    Pros

    alliantgroup is a results oriented company. If you are the sort who comes into a career with positive energy, and an attitude that you are going to ascend and compete, and the expectation that you will be compensated well for it, this company is a great fit.

    alliantgroup expends tremendous resources on new employees, teaching them highly marketable skills.

    The sense of accomplishment I feel in this work vastly exceeds any experience I have had elsewhere in the nearly 15 years I have spent in the legal field. I use legal skills and training, but in a fun cooperative environment that is unlike any law firm I have ever seen.

    The growth of the company has been exceptional, and it still feels like we are on the ground floor!

    The company is committed to giving its employees an "on campus" experience, with creative perks that range from happy hours, parties, and gift cards to trips, and large results based bonuses.

    Leadership is accessible, and engaged in a way that is unheard of in a company this size. The time they spend personally, teaching others principals of leadership and management is one of the things that makes this company great.

    Cons

    alliantgroup is not for everyone. Client service is a commitment, and those who are just looking for a place to blend in, or who tend to have a negative outlook, will not do well here. Emphasis is placed on performance, ownership, and accountability.

    Teamwork is important here, so folks do what it takes to get the job done, while expecting the same of their peers.
