    Pros

    Good people. Some of the offshore tech staff has been with the company for years and years and is very sharp. Good admin support and HR staff. Supportive of healthy work/life balance.

    Cons

    Some of the clients are not well known, so if you are looking to build your resume, depending on where you get assigned... As with many offshore organizations, staffing can be difficult. Offshore resources at Alliance do stick around longer than I have seen at other organizations, but I have found it challenging to get the right resource I need in a timely manner for my project.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to find ways to share information across the organization. I have found the periodic engagement manager meetings to be very valuable.

    Pros

    It was once a great company to work for with a real focus on providing value to its customers and a commitment to its employees.

    Cons

    The CEO and his direct reports support their favorites regardless of output and spend a lot of time complaining about everyone else. It is not a company that values differing opinions as evidenced by the revolving door of senior management over the years. There was a time when working at Alliance meant working for top notch clients and on cutting edge technologies, but that has changed with the focus on testing and simple revenue growth.

    Advice to Management

    Make people feel like they are relevant to the company and bring back some of the values that were once touted as the bedrock of the company.

    Dedicated and involved Senior Management Alliance takes a true partnership approach with our clients. The work product from our teams reflects the openness and collaborative approach we take.

    Cons

    If you don't want to be transparent to your management and clients this isn't the right place for you.

    Pros

    Great opportunities to grow with an entrepreneurial attitude, really changed direction in the last 5 years and is focussed on developing some cutting edge technologies

    Cons

    Some long nights and weekends but really exciting work and lot of travel. However, given my personality I would probably be bored in a slow 9-5 company

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Smart people working on complex technology/business problems. Great focus on customer satisfaction and partnerships. Tremendous growth in progress! Passionate, strong team both onshore and offshore.

    Cons

    Limited attention to training and not many opportunities to get to the 'home office'. Communication internally has been improving though and the vision of the leadership team is very clear.

    Pros

    High customer satisfaction (Net Promoter) scores have enabled aggressive growth for Alliance. We have been able to leverage these high customer sat figures to build on success and grow our customer portfolio. Aside form delivery excellence, customers appreciate our candor, directness and transparency which is in alignment with our company culture. We have great leadership and direction going in to 2015.

    Cons

    Challenging work environment and high expectations do not allow for "clock-punching". Work-life balance is always a challenge but the alternative -- being part of a slow-growth, stagnant company -- carries a different set of worries as well.

    Advice to Management

    We need more office space

    A mixed bag! Some great people and a lot of talent, coupled by huge egos and Autocratic management.

    Pros

    Intelligent team from leadership down, entire org was talented, capable and intelligent. All Ivy leaguers, well connected, strong VC support. Some unique IP in the life sciences area, and the rest was burgeoning practices that existed primarily as a function of 1 or 2 individuals who were SMEs in a particular domain. When I was there (keep in mind- 10 years ago) they were struggling to mirror the success they had found in the life sciences domain in other areas- offshore Dev, financial services- regulation and surveillance, manufacturing and distribution, etc

    Cons

    Autocratic Management- by definition. Almost everyone else on the leadership team was more concerned with managing up than managing and growing the customer relationships, employees and the business. It was almost unheard of to challenge the leadership team. Total boys club. A handful of truly great managers and leaders.

    Advice to Management

    It has been a long time so I presume that any advice wouldn't be valid. It would have been- get out of your offices, go out to your customers, go on sales meetings, spend time with your employees and clients and listen to what is happening (good and bad) in your own company and in the market.
