I have been working at Allied Consultants (Texas) as a contractor (More than 3 years)

Pros

Pay is never in question; they will pay you even when the client is dragging their feet on pay.
Fairly good HR responsiveness and communications about benefits questions, etc.

Cons

Ownership has become complacent and is out of touch with actual work and clients. Since clients are governments (municipal, county, state) and organizational (ERCOT), change occurs somewhat slower than private industry, but the leadership has fallen behind. Allied is now mainly order-takers ("we think we need a programmer, and you provided one before"), rather than business analysts. Allied is increasingly mismatching skills with needs because they're taking things for granted. If this keeps up, they'll be just another body shop submitting anonymous bodies for published needs, along with every other body shop in the country responding to public job listings.

Advice to Management

Get back in touch with your clients, actually ask your consultants what they're doing. Showing up to deliver the pay stub used to be more of a conversation than it is now, when leadership only cares about lunch plans, not real conversations.

    Pros

    Small company that focuses on positions within Texas (mostly the greater Austin area). Most positions are with Public Companies and State Agencies so the positions have lots of stability. I really like their approach to recruiting; personable but forward and honest.

    Cons

    They are a smaller company and they work with public companies and State agencies, so things can progress can be slower than some other agencies. Despite this the recruiters and managers do a great job of keeping people informed of any status changes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
