I worked at Allant Group full-time (less than a year)

Pros

Good pay, Good vacation package, People are very friendly and nice environment.

Cons

Bad health coverage, poor hr structure; can not think our of box. Spending too much money for hiring people that doing redundant work but not spending money for next generation platform building - R & D.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

you have lots of small team that are developing same software. Think of building a framework that support all client processing in very generic way. That will cut down your stuffing cost to 50% - believe me, no kidding. Have a separate offshore team for 24 hrs support. Your model of developers and managers are doing production support is very poor. Look ahead 5 yrs and think how you should prepare in technology wise to satisfy client's need. If you don.t change your vision toward technology, in 2 yrs you will loose your biggest client as they are getting with technological capabilities.

    Pros

    General good salary & benefits, and lots of great people

    Cons

    No clear company direction or leadership from senior management;
    Morale is extremely low, in part due to past layoffs, and well as more that are coming soon;
    A technology company who doesn't embrace technology or invest in training to drive efficiency;

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not even sure where to start - the company is very dysfunctional right now and there is little trust or collaboration across the CXO offices. The rank and file have nothing to believe in....

    I worked at Allant Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Allant has some of the brightest people in the direct marketing industry. Overall, compensation and benefits are competitive.

    Cons

    Teams are consistently stretched for resources as Company has a "just-in-time" approach to staffing projects. Company struggles with being able to offer scalable solutions for clients as very few "off the shelf" solutions are available. As a result, new client start-ups take on average of 6-9 months, limiting the number of start-ups that can be accomplished each year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In order to meet aggressive growth plans, the company needs to determine more streamlined and efficient ways to bring up new clients. Each client start-up requires new development virtually from scratch rather than taking an offering that is 80% "baked" and then customizing 20% per client requirements. It seems like everyone needs to re-invent the wheel each time a new client signs on.
