    I have been working at Alliance Building Services full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The majority of the non-senior employees are kind, wonderful and caring people whom work hard and are always willing to help each other.

    Cons

    Senior management is plagued with ignorance, laziness and a revolting sense of entitlement that unfortunately can trickle down and affect all facets of the company. The hours and workload are comically disproportionate to the compensation. The company cuts corners at every opportunity. There is little opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    If the upper echelons of the company were more representative of the diverse labor pool, there would be less dissonance. If departments were staffed appropriately, employees compensated more fairly, and the slew of ignorant, entitled parasites purged; this company would not only become a more wholesome, efficient, and positive place to work; but a more successful and profitable business.

      Pros

      Scheduling flexibility, free bagels on Friday, competitive pay

      Cons

      There were a lot more cons than pros, which is a shame. Processes at this company are way over complicated. Pair those over-complicated processes with micro-managers and it leads to the sink or swim/snake pit environment you'll find at Alliance. Unless you're desperate, don't make the leap to Alliance. With the exception of the reviews on October 15 which were all posted on the same day at the request of Keti Mehta,...

      Pros

      Great company for an entry level position. You will definitely learn a lot

      Cons

      They do NOT contribute ANYTHING to your 401k High turnover. Most people leave within their first year unless they do not have college education. Human Resource dept is clueless. Operations team needs a lot of help. Little to no training. Sink or swim environment. Vacation time prorated. If you start in February, you will only get 2.5 vacation and 3.5 personal days. No one wants to take the blame so they point fingers....

      Pros

      There are no pros PERIOD.

      Cons

      Underpaid, Overworked, Ignores your concerns, (1) Manager "running" (5) different divisions(so this person never has time for you), IT Dept. ignores you - so if god forbid you get a virus you're on your own. Google and Facebook wanna be atmosphere (Open work space floor plan) which equals loud and obnoxious noise and zero privacy.

      Advice to Management

      Support your staff, IT dept. sucks - they do not answer or help their employees. If you want to play with the big boys, you need have big boy toys.
