    I have been working at Allant Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The entire team/family here at Allant care about each other, care about what we do and care about our clients. It's real and it's great! Our recent mention in the Forrester Analytics wave provides a great summary of "why Allant". Also, the new office space is phenomenal.

    Cons

    Growth under new management/ownership is slower than expected, but we are well positioned and ready for take off and have been working on new solutions, gaining efficiency and positioning ourselves for long term growth.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course. The right opportunities are right around the corner. Continue to focus on core values and culture. It makes a difference. Continue to build off the excitement and energy that the new space provides.

    I have been working at Allant Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    smart hardworking employees, flexibility with work hours, culture encourages hard work and fun, beautiful office, accessible leadership team...and casual dress is a nice perk.

    Cons

    Not much to say here really. The only thing I can think of right now is that the commute to our new office is longer which isn't ideal (but the new office is bright and beautiful).

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what you are doing -- communicating frequently with the employees. The honesty is refreshing (compared to what we had with the prior owners) and it makes the employees truly feel they are part of the team.

    Flexible work day, access to senior management, frequent company updates/communication, weaves fun into work environment, beautiful new office space, highly intelligent and hard working employees, industry recognition for our solutions/offerings

    Cons

    Distance to office is no longer "convenient," sometimes feel concerns voiced fall on deaf ears/selective hearing.

    Advice to Management

    Continue "righting the ship" as you've been doing....you are doing great work. Grateful for the frequent communication regarding the company, financials, clients, etc.

    I have been working at Allant Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Allant 3.0 started in February 2016 when a group of locals bought the company from some New Yorkers who not only wear sneakers (we wear gym shoes!) but who were also good at blowing lots of money without any sense of direction. We are now focusing on our core values again - the customer and their data, supported by our awesome client services, analytics and IT departments. Things are moving in the right direction again, starting at the top with our very engaged President and the VPs down the all the hard working cube dwellers. Which are nice cubes btw - we just moved to our new office at the end of August and it is very nice.

    Cons

    New client acquisition slow which leads to a little bit of anxiety. I realize that everyone is working hard on that and good things will happen.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the communication so everyone continues to feel that we are all stakeholders and part of the process of growing Allant back to its former glory.
