alliantgroup, LP – Why Work For Us?

Who is alliantgroup?

alliantgroup is the nation's premier provider of specialty tax services.

alliantgroup works with businesses and their CPA firms to identify powerful, government-sponsored, cash-generating credits, incentives, and deductions, such as:

  • Federal and state R&D tax credits
  • Federal export incentives
  • Federal and state manufacturing incentives
  • Federal and state hiring credits & incentives
  • Energy-related tax incentives
  • Captive insurance companies
  • More than 15,000 other federal, state & local credits & incentives

In addition, our Tax Controversy Servicesteam assists clients in avoiding and defending audits, as well as representing them in tax court or other venues if necessary.

With many companies currently experiencing a decline in cash flow from historical levels, alliantgroup's powerful specialty tax service offerings allow a business to reduce its pending tax liability and receive cash infusions from the government for past qualifying activities.

“These incentives can help your business succeed and thrive, especially in this down economy.”

- Senator Charles Grassley

“Too often, only the largest companies take advantage of the law to reduce their taxes. Tomorrow's Fortune 1000 companies need to ensure that they are not at a disadvantage with their competitors when it comes to taxes.”

Dean Zerbe, National Managing Director, alliantgroup; former Tax Counsel to the Senate Finance Committee

    Pros

    Free drinks, it's true! Been pounding them for 14.5 years. The building is shiny, and has a big staircase! If you play racquet sports with management, they turn a complete blind eye to gross incompetence and the inability to perform the most basic job functions - and even promote you. When they demote you for not trying to become best buds with management, they don't reduce the salary you earned from those racquet sports and pretending to love wine! Also, you don't need to be "eckspecially" literate to manage the support staff and they pay moderate settlements so your wife won't find out you were texting your admin at 4 a.m...if racquet sports. And when your computer gets stolen from the front seat of your car outside a bar, you don't get in trouble and they won't inform your clients about all of their sensitive information that was compromised! Thank you thank you thank you! =)

    Cons

    They don't guilt trip employees enough when they don't send company-wide thank you emails for being rewarded for dancing/beatboxing/winning a billing competition. Come on guys, they need to be crushed! Ya gotta build them up to break them down. Everyone can be manipulated!

    Medical insurance doesn't cover scooter to get around office. Pool table is always broken. IRS won't stop calling me.

    No Diet Mountain Dew.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep reading those management books! You never misinterpret the message or pull only the message you want from it. Top notch! Keep on sponsoring American innovation, let's go let's go let's go! Keep McCarthyism alive!!!

    Keep telling us to bill clients more hours than actually exist in a week. YOLO!

    Application Details

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at alliantgroup, LP.

    Interview Details

    I went through a recruiting service and was immediately asked to come in. The building is beautiful and I walked into the room where all the employees were. The room is so open that everyone stares and awkwardly watches you being interviewed. I was literally asked 3 questions while the very ditzy recruiter kept getting up to leave every minute. She had no idea what this position entailed and it was very rushed....because she kept leaving the room.

    This was a similar experience that others had...where the ONLY aspect of the job they care about is IF you're okay with the long hours.

    It was an awkward and unprofessional experienc.
