I had the pleasure of working with an outstanding manager who made my TCS experience positive. Their kindness and understanding created a supportive work environment where I felt valued and heard. They actively contributed to my professional development by providing guidance and opportunities for growth. I'm grateful to have worked under their leadership.
Not enough managers like this.

Can leadership take a more invested approach than do this better, push them harder, yes. Leadership could use some management style refreshment. Especially since some leads or directors have no idea what the styles of workforce need these days. However, the medical benefits are Cadillac. At least in our dept, our leads connect and protect anyone who is willing to grow and learn Are hours long during tax season, yes. You'll find this at any firm with tax deadlines. I wouldn't say we are a cult, we are very team oriented (again in our dept), b/c staying connected means we have each other's backs to get the job done. Is it for everyone? No but we do have some very long tenured people. There is no one in my 5+ years here that doesn't leave with better customer and technical skills than when they started. I've seen many a disgruntled employee leave bad comments because they themselves came onboard with a negative mindset. Pay is great and let's face it, it's a salary baseline for wherever you may go but I know our dept wants you to build a career, be innovative, creative, and learn skills you never dreamed of. Fyi I'm not a director and may never get there but they've given me opportunities to break glass ceilings as a woman and minority that I've NEVER been able to get anywhere else.
Leadership could use some retreats on communication, generational styles, coaching and being better managers.2

Multi-taskers and high achievers will thrive. Incredible fully paid health benefits. Lunches are free every day. Your effort is rewarded with bonuses on a quarterly basis. They encourage creativity and growth. Your background/experience doesn’t really matter, but your drive and motivation does.
If you don’t enjoy your team you will not be satisfied here. If you aren’t successful at multi-tasking or collaboration, you will be stagnant here. Can be demanding work. You are ranked in your department.

Compensation is great for Houston COL. You obtain very niche tax incentives experience that can give you opportunities at legit firms but some of the Big 4 won't even interview you if you have alliantgroup on your resume (you may have a chance at KPMG).
Everything else. They were raided by IRS Criminal Investigation. I don't know why any of their clients are still using them. alliantgroup will say, "oh, it's just our competitors making false accusations" or "this is just part of a standard audit." IRS CI doesn't deal with bad reviews or accusations from competitors or audits. They deal with straight up tax fraud. Practically every major court case involving section 41 of the IRC since the Bush administration involves alliantgroup claiming a credit that its client is not entitled to. And when the client has to pay back the credit to the IRS, alliantgroup ghosts the client cause it already collected its fees. The University of Texas and the University of Houston is suing alliantgroup. If you need more signs to stat away, you are a perfect target for them.1

Great pay, project management skill building, free lunch, data analysis
They expect a lot from you. It’s not a job for the weary. High turnover and long hours with a “drink the kool-aid” culture.

There are absolutely no pros to working for this company. Yes they may pay you a high salary that you would have never imagined or a sign on bonus that they will make you pay back if you leave within a year, BUT is that worth your sanity and mental health? If you take any advice, it would be to listen to every negative review because they are all true. alliantgroup will work you and tear you down until you don't even recognize your self anymore. Be prepared to work 11-12 hours a day during slow season and 12-14 hours a day during tax season. They will make sure that every employee will sell their soul to this place. Management is a joke. The way that anyone becomes a manager is by drinking the Kool-Aid poured straight from the CEO himself. You have to work long hours and not be afraid to give feedback (which means publicly tearing down your colleagues). Joining as a consultant was the worst decision I have ever made. DONT TAKE THE INTERVIEW. KEEP LOOKING ELSEWHERE. Let this review save you from what myself and fellow new grads endured while working at this company.
Everything is a huge con!10

The pay and free food is the only pro
Long hours, awful management, not honest, deceitful, NO WORK LIFE BALANCE. I was at work for 13 hours my second day training although I was told I would work struck 8 hour days.

Good pay and opportunity to work with some cool companies
12 hour work days at a minimum, cult following where they are their way or the highway- there is no meritocracy they flaunt, there are favorites chosen from the onslaught, managers that are not good managers, and some possible malpractice on the work they are doing1

High Pay, will reward you if coming from a STEM field
Very crazy hours, intense culture, if it's not for you can be very draining very quickly.2
