I worked at alliantgroup, LP full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Before you start please look at all the positive reviews. They all have a similar “CON”s
- Fast Paced
- Need more people
- Hard Work

The Pro's are ridiculous. No company on glassdoor has those amazing reviews. RED FLAG.

- These are 100% fake accounts created by the 3-4 person marketing team to hopefully sway people on the fence to start.
- BE CAREFUL.
- Before making a decision look at all the reviews and see the ones that have unique details. - People spend time to write these because they are trying to let NEW people know what to expect. They DON'T GET PAID so they get no benefit in writing a negative responses unlike the "marketing team".

All comments are for jobs on the Implementation side.

You get a job and a laptop.
You get your cell phone bill paid.
You get to hang out with mostly cool people who are young and energetic
You get free food during tax season.
Free sodas
$5 credit for lunch at the cafeteria
Site Visits to different parts of the US
3-5 company parties involving free food and drinks and prizes
Good tax lawyers that know the R&D tax credit
You can advance if you are a “yes” woman and love to brown nose senior management
You get to go to free movies, dinners, if you are favored and a rising star.
You can put tax consulting on your resume ( somewhat helpful if you are right out of college).
You may even get to go to go on free secret trips to Vegas, if you are deemed a pretty girl with a “yes” attitude, by upper management.

Cons

Daily Life

+ To advance in this company, you have to believe in every decision, email, announcement, etc. that they make, no matter how unprofessional, or ridiculous.
+ They will ask for your feedback, but it is really a test to see if you are on board.
+ You have to be at work 10-12 hour days minimum, to get noticed and possibly get a raise.
+ Late night training sessions (after 6-7 pm), and 1 and 1s with whoever is your mentor and maybe her supervisor.
+ They still expect you to know and learn everything while working on client files = LONG DAYS and NIGHTS.
+ They will burn you out. It is like a law firm and they will give you a hard time for leaving early.
+ Extremely high turnover. This applies to new hires as well as employees who have been there for years.
+ Management has favorites, and they aren't shy about letting everyone know who they are.
+ They bill you at out at $200-400 per hour but pay you about 40-60K = $35-40 per hour DOE.
+ “Look at me” emails sent monthly to weekly.
== Everyone has to reply to all and say “You are amazing”, “ Wouldn't expect less from you”, == “Way to be a leader”, and more half hearted words of praise.
== These flood your inbox making it harder to actually do real work.
== They are awkward at best and annoying after your 5th.
+ Structure of the company is in constant change. Directors who fall out of favor will be demoted, removed from their office and basically embarrassed. Sometimes there will be 5 directors then 2 then 7.

Directors and Assistant Directors

+ Most are Hard headed and demeaning to their staff. However, they have their faves and they get better treatment
+ Do not know how to manage people
+ Live for the power trip and brown nosing they get on a daily basis from their staff.
+ They promote those people
+ Work over 12-14 hour days even during non peak times.
+ Shows how much they value their life and their staffs

Owners

+ Do not understand their own workforce nor do they actually care
+ They are blinded by their early success, egos and money they rake in from YOUR work

Promotions

+ Your fate is decided by a round table of upper management usually about 8-9 people and your immediate director (She better love you).
+ They rank you against your peers. It is based on about 70% personal likes, office friendships and agreeability; and about 30% actual performance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

G ive raises sooner than later, if someone shows potential.
F orget trying to manage. Hire external management company to handle daily tasks.
Y ou created a company try and make it grow.

This is really a pointless area, especially for this company, since Management thinks they know everything and has never cared what anyone else says.

They can’t hide the truth with 50-80% company yearly turnover rate. End of the day this company is the most “suck up” company I have ever seen. However, if you like that atmosphere, and having absolutely no personal life, then you will be in heaven, and probably get promoted fairly quickly.

I hope this helps all potential new employees make better decisions.

NOTE: Tax Controversy Services (TCS), Audit, Quality Control (QC) and Business Development teams are other departments that appear to not be as bad, but I wouldn't know from direct experience.

    Pros

    There is a decent enough salary with overtime pay included, they pay $5 everyday for your lunch from a café that was onsite

    Cons

    No discipline regarding work ethic, no repercussions for those who screw around during work, forced overtime work, lots of coworkers who spend hours goofing around, lots of crude language around the office, managers who don't have a gameplan for workloads, just overall bad work environment that can drive you insane

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the culture of lack of discipline, learn to be more professional, don't badmouth numerous employees behind their backs
