    I have been working at alliantgroup, LP full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    We help U.S. businesses every day! During the recent economic downturn, we heard story after story of the companies whose doors stayed open and kept employees due to the dollars we helped them receive! This is truly THE most gratifying job in the world!

    Management and Senior colleagues are approachable and encouraging; everyone truly wants to see you succeed beyond your wildest dreams!!

    An awesome new building in Houston with amazing views and lots of open space to collaborate with colleagues!

    Cons

    Don't come here if you don't want to grow! You'll be challenged on a daily basis to be your best!

    I have been working at alliantgroup, LP full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    -Competitive base salary along with a substantial bonus structure
    -NEW BUILDING!!
    -Paid lunch daily
    -Free soda machines
    -Perks and incentives
    -Promotions from within
    -Opportunity for growth

    This company is doing AMAZING things! Although the hours are a little longer than normal, the work is completely worth it. What you put into it is what you will get out of it and there is constant encouragement along the way from colleagues, Senior Management and even the CEO and COO. It is a very young, fast paced, high performance environment with an amazing opportunity for success.

    Cons

    -The hours are a little longer but this is also a pro because you don't have to sit in traffic when you leave.

    Other than that, I really don't have any.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been with alliantgroup for less than a year but my experience thus far has been rewarding! Without our Senior Management, this company would not be where it is today. They work harder than any Manager or Director I have ever had and they really go out of their way to treat employees with respect and prove to their employees that they care. If meetings are scheduled after hours, they go out of their way to make it fun and the free dinner is a nice bonus as well!

    One of my favorite things is that they are honest during the interview process. They will tell you up front that this company and culture is not for everyone but if you are driven and passionate about your career, then this is the place for you to grow and create your own success!

    Thank you for all you do for your employees and this company. We would not be where we are today without the dedication and passion you all have for alliantgroup!

    A lot of companies say that they will reward hard work and creative thinking. This one really does. I look forward to going to work every day. The opportunities to succeed are endless and the support to help you excel is tremendous.

    Tax season can have some long hours, but days off and other perks reward the efforts.

    I have been working at alliantgroup, LP full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    alliantgroup is a results oriented company. If you are the sort who comes into a career with positive energy, and an attitude that you are going to ascend and compete, and the expectation that you will be compensated well for it, this company is a great fit.

    alliantgroup expends tremendous resources on new employees, teaching them highly marketable skills.

    The sense of accomplishment I feel in this work vastly exceeds any experience I have had elsewhere in the nearly 15 years I have spent in the legal field. I use legal skills and training, but in a fun cooperative environment that is unlike any law firm I have ever seen.

    The growth of the company has been exceptional, and it still feels like we are on the ground floor!

    The company is committed to giving its employees an "on campus" experience, with creative perks that range from happy hours, parties, and gift cards to trips, and large results based bonuses.

    Leadership is accessible, and engaged in a way that is unheard of in a company this size. The time they spend personally, teaching others principals of leadership and management is one of the things that makes this company great.

    Cons

    alliantgroup is not for everyone. Client service is a commitment, and those who are just looking for a place to blend in, or who tend to have a negative outlook, will not do well here. Emphasis is placed on performance, ownership, and accountability.

    Teamwork is important here, so folks do what it takes to get the job done, while expecting the same of their peers.

    Pros

    You really do hold your career in your hands! You will be given as much work and responsibility as you want and can handle, and you will have ample opportunities to advance. In fact, your opportunities for advancement are much more available than in almost any other work place. Your hard work will be recognized. The training group and management give you all of the tools you need to excel, and there truly is an open door policy anytime you have a question. Any time you have questions or concerns, management is always available. On top of that, you get to work with a diverse group of talented, intelligent, and interesting professionals on a daily basis.

    Cons

    The hours can be long at times and the deadlines can stack up, but you are never alone in working through these challenges. While working long hours, typically during tax season, your comrades are there with you working and building camaraderie. You receive lots of project management training to help manage deadlines. Plus, if you ever get too bogged down, all you have to do is raise your hand and ask for help.

    Pros

    What i love about alliantgroup is that it can enhance your talents and take them to the next level. My background is in architecture with a focus in sustainability. Working in different architecture firms, I wasn't able to use my talents to the fullest capacity. Once I began working in alliantgroup I saw immediate results finding tax deductions for several clients all over the country who work on energy efficient buildings. Now I am helping our economy, the environment, and architecture as we know it. In my eyes alliantgroup has been a blessing to myself, my passion, and my future.

    Cons

    I honestly cannot say one bad thing about this company, it is the best job I have ever had in my career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have very minimal advice. Since I believe we have a great upper management, but I think if we focus a bit more on setting clear expectations, coaching individuals to improve their performance as well as their professional development, and prepare for the unexpected I think it will be a great way to manage the company.

    Pros

    The high performers are rewarded in many different ways. If you are hard working and intelligent, you will excel at alliantgroup and there is plenty of opportunity to move into a leadership position at the firm.

    Your co-workers are great. They are always willing to help and be a sounding board for ideas. Not to mention a great support system including a mentorship program, extensive training, and management's door is always open.

    Also, it feel great to help small and mid-size businesses in the United States.

    Cons

    It is a little cramped since there are so many people and not enough space in the current offices. Good news is that we are moving to a new building at the end of the year with plenty of space.

    Also, the environment is very fast paced. So, this is not for everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to reward your talent.

    I have been working at alliantgroup, LP full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    alliantgroup is a company that offers unlimited opportunities for growth and development. It is not uncommon to start in one position, and a year later, be in a completely different department. They try to cultivate the attributes of each employee and put them in a position to succeed and add value to the firm. There are also a lot of perks at the company such as frequent happy hours, bonus incentives, dinners with management, and for the elite performers...all expenses paid trips around the country! But the best pro at alliantgroup are the people. When I started, I said that I was not there to make friends, but to make money. Well at alliantgroup, the two go hand and hand!!

    Cons

    Some people elevate into management too fast. An employee may be great at managing him/herself, but not as effective managing a team of their peers. However, I will say that the management experience you get on a daily basis is like nothing else you will experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to hire ambitious and driven people who take initiative. However, understand that everyone will not enjoy tax. For many employees this is their first "real" job. So extra attention and mentorship needs to be in place to help them maximize their potential.
