    I have been working at Allant Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great name recognition, great product and service offerings, and a strong, loyal client base. Additionally, we have a very passionate workforce, loyal to the company and its new direction. There are multiple opportunities within the company for career growth and advancement.

    Cons

    We are very much in the early phases of this turn-around. Because of that, there will be some unanticipated challenges to overcome in the months ahead.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to engage with employees; keep your finger on the pulse of the people in the trenches. Work together as a senior leadership team, not in silos.

    I worked at Allant Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good people/management. Good atmosphere - not chaotic. Casual dress. Some opportunity for advancement. On-site fitness center. Underground parking garage. In my position, was able to work from home, when needed.

    Cons

    Under new ownership, company is struggling, thus, my unemployment. Other than that, this was a good place to work. Very few career opportunities at this time.

    Advice to Management

    None. New owners are hands-on and experienced in this space. If they keep doing what they're doing, they should succeed.

    I have been working at Allant Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very flexible schedule, transparent management, a lot more effort put into employee development recently

    Cons

    The company has gone through a very rough period the last few years, so employees are always nervous about the financial outlook of the company. With the change in ownership, the new management is trying very hard to reassure employees that times have changed. In addition, there's not much social interaction after work compared to other companies. The company is located in the far suburbs of Chicago, so it is quite isolated from big social events, such as those found in the Loop.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in employee development and being transparent

    Allant Group Response

    I am hopeful our actions over the last 7 months have shown that times have changed since our acquisition of the company. Hope you enjoyed the recent social events that were well-received and we will ... More

    Pros

    I've been at Allant for 8 years and this is the most positive I've felt about the future direction of the company since I've been here. The leadership team takes an analytics approach to decision making and has a realistic view of the long term goals.

    There is a warm sense of camaraderie from your co-workers. This helps with teamwork across departments which enables positive results.

    Cons

    There may be small bumps in the road as Allant continues to grow.

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts. As we transform the company, there have been bumps and will most certainly be a few more but we feel, as you do that we are overall moving in the right direction ... More

    Pros

    - New management. Excellent one on one on boarding process.
    - Very welcoming, open communication and friendly co-workers.
    - Flexible work hours as long as you get the work done which is very important as it shows they care about work than the actual hours you are putting in. It keeps you motivated to work well and get it done.

    Cons

    Nothing I can think of other than parking lot needs some maintenance.

    Appreciate the feedback on the onboarding process, communication and our work approach. I had just recently talked to our landlord about the need for additional maintenance as you mention and will ... More

    I have been working at Allant Group (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I am both a current and former employee. I spent the majority of my career at Allant Group (formerly EMS), when I first started we were a company of 50 with a great entrepreneurial atmosphere – After 17 years, I left the company when it was sold to a large Venture Capitalist company. Now after the purchase by new ownership in February 2016, I am back and it feels like the old Allant. The new ownership including two executives are transparent and are making decisions to move the company in the right direction to become a growing profitable company once again. The new ownership supports a culture that includes hard work, continuous improvement, forward thinking, efficiency, accountability and most importantly transparency.

    Cons

    In the effort to get Allant back on the profitable track many changes are taking place, this creates a feeling of uncertainty among tenure employees who are hesitant to embrace cultural and technological changes.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to move the company forward. Attitude is a reflection of leadership and the positive attitudes within the Leadership team will continue to trickle down and get everyone moving toward the end goal of creating a profitable leading-edge technology and analytical company.

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts on the transformation at Allant. Yes, we have gone through many changes since the acquisition early this year and we have been transparent with everyone as we made ... More

    Pros

    Company is under new management which are looking to grow the company. Great opportunity to get into the company on the ground level and be part of the team that turns the company around. New management team is very knowledgeable with a vast array or related work experience. They are very receptive to new ideas to help grow the profitability of the company.

    Cons

    New management will need time to fix all of the issues left by the previous owners, however, this will provide many opportunities to excel for current and new employees.
