    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.

    I have been working at Alliance Residential full-time

    Pros

    Beautiful properties. Pay. Holiday and sick pay. Benefits. Co workers are a team ( in the office )

    Cons

    Most Alliance properties aren’t owned by Alliance so hit or miss on having good owners. Computer programs. Too many people involved that just try to throw people under the bus. No accountability. Upper management isn’t on your side.

    Advice to Management

    Be one team. Care about your residents more. They keep you employed.

    I have been working at Alliance Residential full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Colleagues are amazing and a huge resource for new team members and the bonus structure is amazing as long as your site is performing. You get a clothing allowance which is a huge help considering clothing can be expensive.

    Cons

    Training is definitely lacking. There is no in person training. You are set up in front of a computer and that is your training. They assign you an elevate coach which is NOT a trainer but they “coach” you. This area needs drastic improvement as I’ve seen a lot of people fail due to inadequate training. They also need to evaluate standards based on your RVP. Things changed after a year with the company when there was an upper management change. My new boss is a big micro-manager and constantly sends ways she wants you to do things which is the complete opposite of the previous person in her role
    . They should offer compensation is you don’t take the companies beneifits as they are saving money. There is absolutely NO work-life balance. You are over worked and under paid.

    Advice to Management

    Train on budgets as this is the main objective at every asset and have in person trainings. Have policies and expectations consist.

    I worked at Alliance Residential full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Alliance is a Large corporation and a potential Resume builder.

    Cons

    The training department needs a complete overhaul. Sitting a new employee in front of a computer for 2-6 weeks is absolutely ridiculous. The courses are out dated and not effective. The IT department is not adequate and completely rude/unhelpful. A company that size shouldn’t have the issues it does.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time focusing on your core values to ensure your teams are effective.

    I worked at Alliance Residential full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There was room to grow to beginning with.

    Cons

    I was with Alliance Residential for three years. They started of great. I got recognized for my hard work and having a top maintenance team in my region. I transferred to another location and that start off great as well. Then a middle management change happen and it want down hill. I was preforming my job has best as I could with high tech turnover. I was hitting the number they were wanting as well. They made me shovel an entire complex by myself on more then one occasion. Even though they had a no snow removal policy set in place when I first started. I most have rubbed my regional manager the wrong way because once he took over the region they started to write me up with out saying I was getting written up. They forced me out of a position that I was qualified for and performing to what I thought there standards were.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t let middle management make a decision to get rid of someone because the don’t like them. I know at the time I work their this regional had multiple people leave his region or left the company because of them. Don’t let you talent go because you like someone that is cancer to your company.

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

    Pros

    This is not a great company for which to work. It's not an organization that celebrates intelligence or initiative.

    Cons

    This is not a great company for which to work. It's not an organization that celebrates intelligence or initiative. In fact, progressive thinking seems to be a red flag to management. The ways in which you have to dumb yourself down to work in their system can be soul-sucking.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people. Promote and incentivize your best and brightest.
