I have been working at Alliant Insurance Services

Pros

Alliant Insurance is a good place to work. They emphasize team work and encourages employees to be entrepreneurial. They seem to really care about their employees and provide an environment with good work-life balance.

Cons

There is nothing really bad that I can think of. Just that sometimes I find it hard to connect with the right person within the company since the groups are so widespread. But even then people are generally really nice and helpful.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think management should communicate more with employees regarding company performance and share their plans for future growth.

    Pros

    Benefits are good, hours management are slack so no one actually knows what you are doing or supposed to be doing, or cares what you are doing. Pay and benefits are decent, but not for how you are treated, year end bonus is ok.

    Cons

    No management - so completely chaotic, blame comes downwards and management always wins. If you are a good corp. robot who fears success but needs a salary - this is the place for you. If you have 2cents of dignity - wait for a better job to come along, it won't be hard to top.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Someone needs to have the b***s and care enough to attempt to fix a broken system. Lots of revenue is being wasted in patching up mistakes that could/should of been fixed if some/anyone cared enough to open their eyes. Terrible nasty politics and bullying, so no one wants to be there including management, no matter how big the deal is - no one cares! Now where does that come from. Stick around on Friday after 2pm - because everyone else leaves when you leave! Get the picture?

    Poor leadership for a good team in a good market niche.

    Pros

    Alliant knows its market niche extremely well, and really knows how to focus on the core business. In addition, the company has its heart in the right place, even if all eyes are firmly focused on the bottom line. For folks whose career paths are aligned with Alliant's market niche (which is growing), spending some time there to learn how a lean and hungry company operates isn't a bad idea -- but consider getting out once you've learned. For everyone else, well -- the company talks a good line.

    Cons

    The company is moderately to extremely incompetent outside of its core business -- from hiring new folks to keep up with growing business, to managing infrastructure, contracts ... well, pretty much everything else is hit-or-miss or worse. If you aren't a broker/producer, use Alliant as a stepping stone but get out fairly quickly before your career gets sidetracked and you find yourself putting in 60 hour weeks for someone else's gain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hand over management to someone that knows more than just the insurance brokerage business. Just because you know insurance doesn't mean you know how to run a sizable insurance company.
