    Good history, but quality is slipping

    I have been working at Allied Consultants (Texas) as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay is never in question; they will pay you even when the client is dragging their feet on pay.
    Fairly good HR responsiveness and communications about benefits questions, etc.

    Cons

    Ownership has become complacent and is out of touch with actual work and clients. Since clients are governments (municipal, county, state) and organizational (ERCOT), change occurs somewhat slower than private industry, but the leadership has fallen behind. Allied is now mainly order-takers ("we think we need a programmer, and you provided one before"), rather than business analysts. Allied is increasingly mismatching skills with needs because they're taking things for granted. If this keeps up, they'll be just another body shop submitting anonymous bodies for published needs, along with every other body shop in the country responding to public job listings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back in touch with your clients, actually ask your consultants what they're doing. Showing up to deliver the pay stub used to be more of a conversation than it is now, when leadership only cares about lunch plans, not real conversations.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Allied Consultants (Texas).

    Interview Details

    Allied is primarily a provider to Texas state government, so job descriptions are usually detailed and always public information. They typically don't hire novices or new college grads because of the state demands. Allied provides you the job description and guides you through the state forms - can't just submit a resume - advising you what to emphasize. They'll identify the interviewers at the various agencies, and provide all the contact information you need. Allied is quite experienced in state gov't, so when possible, they'll give you some history and personality overview.

    Interview Questions
    • Be prepared to perform a task in your technology or professional area, whether a brief programming exercise or an analysis exercise. Allied will pass on all the information they have, but it's up to you to prove your knowledge.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiation was easy. Allied's recruiter will not play any games, trying to maximize their cut at your expense, and will tell you the real range and how to best fit in that range. It's really more of a consultation as to what you should ask, rather than a negotiation. For instance, you might ask a buck or two per hour less than the max to fit better, depending on some weakness in your expertise, or go for the max. Allied will talk candidly and helpfully to you.
