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

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.

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!


    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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at alliantgroup, LP.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for the Project associate-law position. I'm a recent law school graduate. I had the first phone interview which was very quick and I the recruiter immediately set up a skype interview for the next day. During the skype interview, it seemed as though the recruiter had made up her mind about me within the first minute and was rushing to get off for the rest of the time. She did not ask me if I had any questions and told me at the end that she would give my resume to upper management. I didn't get the position but feel like I never really had a shot. It seems that people who are moved on to the next phase of interviewing find out during the interview. That wasn't the case with me. I can't understand why the recruiter never gave me a fair shot. Maybe they hear about how easy to get a job there and are trying to rectify the situation.

    Interview Questions
    • It was fairly easy questions. "What made you want to be a lawyer? Tell me about yourself? What brings you to houston"   Answer Question
