    I have been working at Alliance Residential full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I love this company, my supervisor and my team! Not only is the training streamlined-no GraceHill or fluff, just what you need but the support you receive going into this company is phenomenal. My property is beautiful & maintained. My team has motivation from superiors, monies incentives and consistent opportunities to grow and advance. If you are looking for a company to be excited to be a part of, feel appreciated and have the doors open to move into positions you desire--this is the company for you!

    Cons

    Honestly, none worth mentioning.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up, sincerely. I feel valued and empowered. I'm thrilled to be with Alliance.

    I have been working at Alliance Residential full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Quarterly bonuses, commission, $ to spend on work clothes, and rent discount for onsite employees. There is also accessible training to sign up for.

    If you are lucky, you will work with people to feel like family. That can change very quickly though due to overturn.

    Coaches are available to assist after training for questions or concerns about your role.

    Cons

    Managers are very hostile towards their subordinates and make very offensive comments like using the word "retarded", make un-pleasant comments about minorities, and talk about how much they support a certain politician which was/is obviously a very touchy subject in today's world and should not be discussed at work. Employees are afraid to speak up because they know nothing will be done.

    Properties are always understaffed so they are constantly sending employees to different properties with no compensation for gas, time, or sales lost.

    Again, there is accessible training to grow, however growing is limited for a lack of a better word. They hire a lot from the outside instead of promoting within. I have witnessed several coworkers overlooked who are completely qualified.

    Advice to Management

    Maintenance needs to be valued a lot more. Properties especially should not be understaffed for maintenance.

    Do not overlook people who are qualified and apply to move up in the company for people from the outside, it is discouraging, Since Alliance hires from the outside, it is easier to have a bad employee who treats others badly. Employees are afraid to speak up because they feel that it will backlash on them.

    Pros

    Great benefits, lots of time off, excellent opportunities to learn and grow.

    Cons

    The training is poor for people who are new to the industry. Some of the managers tend to be unprofessional toward their subordinates.

    Advice to Management

    Get a handle on the high turnover ratio if you want to develop stronger teams.

    Pros

    Great training techniques. Everyone I have met at this company is genuine interested in developing each others growth in the company. Very team/family oriented. Cares a lot about prospects, residents and employees! Great benefits, bonuses and prizes offered!

    Cons

    I personally think everyone in the national should have at least 3 days off. But that's a norm.

    I worked at Alliance Residential full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They hire everyone in accounting as their system is based on managing turn over. So pretty my I have seen no advantage of working at Alliance other than the immense workload has made me faster.

    Cons

    Lots of work with no structure.

    Advice to Management

    Please dont only focus on money making and management.

    Pros

    Feels like family and there are people to help you grow and succeed.

    Pros

    Fair compensation; love my team; love my residents

    Cons

    Horrible leadership from the top to most of the Regionals. They fail to provide positive feedback nor do they act as if they value you.

    Advice to Management

    Show appreciation for your employees as they keep you in business. Without great employees you lose thousands of dollars trying to fill positions with less quailfied people. Treat people with respect. Remember we are all equal and should be a team not treated as adversaries.

    I worked at Alliance Residential full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Can be a really fun experience! It isn't a difficult job if you stay organized. They offer some nice benefits along with the pay. They also spend a good amount of time training their employees.

    Cons

    Your happiness at your jobs depends on the team you work under, and if you have lazy coworkers it could be bad news for you. If the property you're at has a bad month due to uncontrollable conditions Alliance might blame the sales team and take away the team's bonuses just to save money for the company. The property you work at might have a few residents that constantly annoy you.

    Advice to Management

    The management should strive to communicate better with their team and be willing to take advice to make the experience better for their residents.
