    I have been working at alliantgroup, LP full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are many reviews about one's caree development and growth which is excellent. I'm also really proud to call this my home. alliantgroup has done so much for employees during this time to make us feel safe. Not like other consulting firms, cpa firms and other professional firms that are firing masses of people.

    Cons

    None. Ready to get back to the office .

    I worked at alliantgroup, LP full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    For me it was a great opportunity to work with people that were mostly younger. The people I worked with were dedicated to creating the best solutions possible. The firm is great at onboarding, on day 1 your computer, phone, software , badge, security, all works . The firm was quick to respond and adapt to the pandemic, we were able work remotely without downtime.

    Cons

    Would like to see more older employees.

    Pros

    They'll pay you and you get benefits, which in this economy counts for something.

    Cons

    This is by far the worst place I've ever worked. I read the reviews on here the night before my final interview and I wish I had listened to the reviewers and cancelled it. Everything you've read in the 1 star reviews here are true. You'll notice all the 4 and 5 star reviews have similar talking points & are really not that detailed, its because they make employees post positive reviews because they're desparate for new hires. The "core values" are all upside down and are defined one way but mean something completely different. They will be used to stop you from getting promoted when your boss doesn't like your personality but can't fire you because they don't personally like you. Transparency is code for "rat out your coworkers to get in good with management" and "any legit criticism you give about what we're doing will get you in trouble". Managers here are an absolute joke. Some of them are probably fine but the majority are 100% looking out for themselves and will take the first opportunity to throw you under the bus to make themselves look better. I have no idea how much training they give the senior associates/team leads but I've seen enough sheerly incompetent people in charge to think that the amount is not a lot. It feels more like you're in a cult than at a job, because you have to love the company and be thrilled with it at all times (or at least seem that way) to succeed. Managers feel like they're running a sorority/frat. I've even heard racist and sexist comments out of team leads mouths & felt like I had no where to go about it, so that was super fun. The whole culture is super toxic. I used to think that people weren't out to get me in life, but there are definitely a handful of employees here who take it upon themselves to make sure your life is absolutely miserable in the name of helping you improve. If you have a bad relationship with one person they are going to be super rude to you for the rest of the time you work there. the solution to these bad relationships are "feedback meetings" which are basically opportunities for you to feel like garbage and get humiliated in front of your boss and the other person's boss. they solve nothing and are miserable to sit through. If you defend yourself youre going to look bad. HR (sorry, "talent") is rarely (never) at these meetings, so you know that people who are really equipped to handle conflict are making sure things go well. HR is nonexistent and a joke. The number one thing I learned from this job is that if your HR department is called "talent" and their main function is recruiting, that company does not care about keeping good employees when it can just drag in new ones. They'll keep pushing this idea to you during your interview, "work life integration". This does not mean they actually care about your life. This means that alliantgroup is supposed to be your life. If you have a social life outside of work or priorities that come before your job, you will not succeed here. If your sense of self-esteem only comes from your job and how unstable people perceive you, you will do well here. If you have confidence from outside of work in your personal life, they will not like that as they want your sense of self to be completely dependent on the company. The information you will learn at this company is useless. They are constantly changing the requirements for what it takes for people to get promoted, and then they use the core values to make sure you get to keep not being promoted. There is a huge gap between what their official stance on billing is and your performance goals which leads to a lot of unethical billing. You will go home feeling like a garbage person for taking advantage of small mom and pop shops and then wake up dreading going back to it because who knows what "transparent feedback" is going to derail your whole day and make you feel worthless. The workload often times is way too much and they say its because they need to bring in more new hires but really its because they can't keep accomplished people around. They are constantly pushing you to recruit new people because they cannot retain employees. That should be the biggest red flag in the world, that this company in the middle of an economic crisis is hiring way more people. I know so many people (including me) who quit during covid without a job lined up because they couldn't take it. They put way too much on their employees, and when someone can't keep up they push you out. They don't see the value in listening to lower-level people when they can just make you more and more upset and make you feel more and more worthless until you quit.

    I worked at alliantgroup, LP full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    free food - but i realized they do that so nobody can leave the office-

    Cons

    Ahhh i hope you're ready LOL 1. don't ever work here 2. literally about 5% of the people that work there have been there longer than 4 years.....and the company has been in business for like 18 years.... 3. 2-3 people quitting consistently each week. i've never seen a company turnover rate that horrible. 4. company is desperate to constantly hire new grads so they can brainwash them. just look on linkedin and you'll see the recruiters and higher up management frat club posting almost the same template every other day about recruitment. It says ALOT. 5. higher ups are constantly ridiculing to make it look like they're teaching you something. thye're not. it's jsut toxic. the culture is so so toxic. 6. almost everybody is looking for a different job and i think that's so funny 7. if you're not sucking up and working overtime (they don't pay you overtime but you work until like 8 almost everyday) you won't get promoted. period. 8. honestly the work is boring and not useful in real life anyway 9. don't work here 10. an environment that is constantly changing because people quit so much. no consistency 11. don't even THINK about being transparent with them. it'll bite u. 12. i left at 6:30 everyday because i was one of the few people that actually had a life but i also managed my time REALLy well and finished everything that needed to be done. however, since i left at 6:30 - which is when you get off- i was given weird looks because it looked like i "didn't work hard enough" which is so pathetic 13. upper management has to write good reviews on here to hide all the real reviews 14. dont work here 15. i can go on and on about how toxic this place is and i would love to drop names to but please just read the REAL reviews and listen!

    I worked at alliantgroup, LP full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The only pros are decent pay for recent graduates and free lunch.

    Cons

    The cons are the culture, work life balance, pressure from managers, and turn over. The culture of this place is nuanced to say the least. On the surface the core values seem like a positive thing but you quickly realize they are not. Transparency within this company is there biggest flaw. They will put you into a group setting with your peers and either ridicule you publicly or participate in ridiculing others publicly. They consider this "iron sharpening iron". I would consider that a toxic work environment. There is no consistency in teams or managers due to the high turn over rate. Teams were decimated when I was working there and COVID has only made it worse. If you look at other forums you can see the trend from the recruiting team and senior employees blasting requests for folks to "Apply and join our great team". The company is in desperate need of people because they have lost so many due to their flaws and COVID. Work life balance is not a concern at this company. At a minimum you work 50 hours a week and if you get close to leaving the office at 6:30 you are looked at as not a hard worker. COVID has only made work life balance even worse. I knew people that were consistently working till 11:00 pm and getting up to work at 6:30 am. During my interviews with new employers many of them have mentioned hearing bad things from former employees and horror stories with management.

    I have been working at alliantgroup, LP full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This is the first place that I worked that cares more about me and my career than anything else. From day 1, I've been pushed to grow my career and I know exactly where I stand on my track to my next promotion! It's a breath of fresh air - feedback is given daily and my team wants me to be great! I have a career path laid out for me all the way to Managing Director - I'm one my way!

    Cons

    The culture here is not for everyone - people that don't like to be pushed to be great often don't make it. It's not a fit for people that are looking for a job where you can get lost in the shuffle and clock-in and clock-out.

    Pros

    Free food, nice gym. No pros regarding the actual job.

    Cons

    All high reviews are made as a requirement once you are promoted, do not believe them. No weekends. They call work life balance “work/life integration” because you’ll be working at least 5-10 hours on the weekend. I knew in a consultant role I’d be working 50 hours or more, but I didn’t know Id be working 70+. Extremely micromanaged. Weekly development meetings that will make you feel as if you’re not trying to get better. A former coworker told me “I cried during my development meeting today but it’s all part of the job!” HUH?? What job requirement says you must cry anywhere?? Also, if this is your only resort for a job out of college, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do not take it and just keep waiting. There is a better opportunity out there.
