    Work is good but pay is bad

    Project Manager (Current Employee) Short Hills, NJ

    ProsSmall company, you have lot of learning and scope to grow.

    ConsNo formal appraisal process that means no salary hikes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt’s important that loyal, well performing to employees must be paid well. A good feedback should be associated with a hike or a bonus. Also company immigration policies are very stringent which makes it very hard for employees to get a green card. It needs to be reviewed by learning the standards used by other IT companies.

    Really like Alliance

    Architect (Current Employee) Conshohocken, PA

    ProsI work with smart, talented people who drive for results. I don't have to travel much. My assignments are technically challenging and I enjoy the work environment.
    I get great support from the operations team and find the management team to be accessible whenever I need to speak to them. We are growing, but there still all the benefits of a smaller company

    ConsWe need more communication across the organization. More managers from the US should visit the Hydereabad office and more of the managers from Hyderabad should visit the US. If we spent more time on both shores, collaboration would be better.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork on company-wide communication. We don't hear enough about what is happening on other projects or when we close new business. I would like to know more.

    Was not an organized company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsCo-workers and HR were very friendly and easy to get along with. Good base salary and bonus incentive.

    ConsI was not satisfied with my job or the management here. Project was not coordinated well and blame was passed on to a scapegoat. Work/Life balance was virtually non existent. Had to jump through hoops just to leave a few minutes early in order to attend to important matters.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Despicable management produces a has-been organization.

    Architect (Former Employee) Conshohocken, PA

    ProsReasonable work-life balance with ability to work remotely, etc. Compensation is fair, though bonuses are rarely, if ever, paid.

    ConsFirst let me say that John Castleman is the most incompetent CEO of any I've met. They have missed so many opportunities in the technology sector that the capital company who owns Alliance should have replaced him years ago. There's been very little growth and a constant shift to off-shoring, which results in low quality work being delivered to clients. Delivery consistently misses targets and has very little interaction with rank and file workers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDiscard the stale management that is in place today.

    CMM Level 5 guys think 1000 times before you join

    Associate Architect (Current Employee) Hyderābād (India)

    Pros- Pay with out VP
    -If you are in office until 10-11PM ,then you will be recommended for B1 Visa considering you as outperformer (no output required, just you have to stay that's it) same mindset through out the company from mgr to AVP

    Cons- Micro Management at his height, mgrs will check in/out timings and your tea breaks as well (especially mgrs having 5-8 yrs exp in Alliance itself, shows full bossism)
    - You will be assigned work at 6-7PM and will ask you to complete and then go
    -Managers don't know planning,everything adhoc,
    - Egos b/n onsite mgr and offshore mgrs
    -No Work life balance
    -

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire mgrs from Level 5 comps
