    I worked at alliantgroup, LP full-time

    Pros

    Free Lunch, fun co-workers, and the fact I no longer work there.

    Cons

    Be sure to read the latest articles and look at when the increase in social media started. It's all true....in every single department. They have current employees write reviews to try and cover up what is really going on. If you can't find a prior employee with a positive review, that should tell you something.

    Advice to Management

    The executives have been doing this for years, with no conscience, so this little phase of articles isn't going to change their mannerisms.

    I have been working at alliantgroup, LP full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pros
    Free Lunch
    Pay is decent at first
    fun co-workers
    Full medical and dental and vision
    At first this place seems like google. fun young people, company happy hour, free lunches and half the yr free dinner etc The most of the new employees are good fun loving people. They have good perks like onsite gym and wellness classes. The bldg is nice and in a great location with free parking.

    Cons

    No work life balance
    unethical practices
    brown-nose type culture at its worse

    After the honeymoon of three months of so you get a better idea of the place. They bring lunch and dinner in so that they can bill the client more and keep you in the bldg. they do not want you to go home and even want you to work weekends. They claim that if you go home before 6:30 that you are only working for a check even if you have finished your workload. They want you to live for them and have no outside life.

    They create a toxic work environment that is extremely unprofessional. There is a reason that most people that work their that are not management are younger than 28 and are unmarried with no kids. They try to trick and trap you with decent pay and bonuses. Most intelligent people see past this trick and leave. Intelligent people also soon realized that management does not care for them and belittle you as quick as the season change. if 90% of your promotion or raise depends on your brown nosing skill than there is a bigger issue.

    Most of the positive reviews you will read are probably fake, written by the paid employees to balanced out the negative.

    Advice to Management

    When your turnover is as high as McDonald's than you have a issue. Truly try to invest in your employees lives and not how they make you feel. Let them have a outside life.

    I worked at alliantgroup, LP full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Paid Insurance, 401k match (finally), free lunch, decent pay

    Cons

    Free dinner if you're in a certain department, VERY long hours, frat house mentality, mandatory weekday office engagements that last until 10PM or later, toxic culture, high turnover

    Advice to Management

    They say there is an open door policy, but the reality of it is that you can schedule a meeting with a manager or director, but it will likely be scheduled out at least a week in advance, and will likely be rescheduled numerous times before actually meeting. By then, the topic of the meeting is usually irrelevant and you are made out to be a joke. Open criticism and openly talking about other employees weaknesses. There is no trust among employees and management as management will tell you one thing, then do another as this makes them look better. Half of these reviews are from employees trying to gain a promotion and they are urged to write a praising review. Ever notice how they are all from senior associates, directors, or senior directors. During an interview, ask what the average tenure of employees are, then ask why so low. If you are told average tenure is more than 2 years, it is a lie. Turnover is so high that managers fill the minds of the employees that this is a fast growing organization. That is because they want you to believe that they are hiring new faces for new positions when in actuality they are replacing those that leave. If you have a family or value a personal life, do not work here. That will be sucked away from you with promises of a large salary and big bonuses. Only take this if you are needing a paycheck and have a plan of staying no more than 6 months.

    I have been working at alliantgroup, LP full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you can survive longer than a year at this job, you can handle anything

    Cons

    We can start with the hours, completely atrocious- forget any type of social or personal life. "Do not travel during revenue generating hours", is an actual rule. This translates to traveling on Sunday or after 7pm... again goodbye free time. Their corporate headquarters are in Houston which also means you'll need to spend at MINIMUM 1 week a month at this location (refer back to travel schedule). They will also make you stay in corporate housing when traveling, which have at least 2 beds per room, so kiss goodbye any idea of alone time or decompressing from your day. After the long day of actual work (8:00am-7:00pm) not including responding to emails at lightening speed at all hours of the night, you will be forced to stay for an evening training till midnight or later. While I would say training is a sign of investment, most of these evenings were spent berating low & high performers in a group setting. Someone always leaves in tears. Every single statement made in this setting will be ridiculed by both senior leaders and the CEO. When you finally sleep at night you need to make sure to sleep with your phone on high volume because your supervisor or the CEO will email you throughout the night and expect intelligent and thought provoking responses from you. There really is no time to think of this as "odd behavior" because alliantgroup will keep you working around the clock with zero time to think as an actual human being. The brainwashing is real. The PTSD is real.
     When people leave alliantgroup they are considered a "suppressive person - SP", i.e. you are not allowed to associate with these people anymore because they do not hold alliantgroup to the highest regard. However, when a co-worker leaves alliantgroup do expect to go through "auditing" and explain why you think they left the company, what you could have done to keep them, and why you are dedicated to alliantgroup. If you bring up any new or irrelevant information during this time you will likely be kicked out of the circle of trust for not elevating an issue with a rogue employee sooner. One way to get back on good graces would be to write a 5 star positive review on glassdoor (reference ANY of the positive reviews here).

    Advice to Management

    First and foremost, treat employees as human beings, give them the dignity and respect they deserve. We are not your minions you can order around for entertainment. People need to come first.

    Free lunch

    Cons

    Late hours
    Lack of work life balance

    Advice to Management

    If I could give this company 0 stars I would. I wish I would have read the reviews on glassdoor before I even considered this company as a place for employment. Everyone who works here succeeds if you brown nose or throw your colleagues under the bus. You don't have time for friends or outside influences because they cater lunches to keep you from leaving. This is obviously a tactic to keep you from taking an hour lunch. Most people work through lunch amd eat at their desk. Once a week you have "team meetings" where you discuss ways to improve the company. In the meetings that you stay at until 10 PM everyone throws each other under the bus to brown nose up to the CEO. During the work week, everyone stares at you if you leave at 6PM or if you have an outside life. The turnover is extremely high because they fire employees who dont fit their mold. If you want an outside life or have a family STAY AWAY. So happy to have a job that isn't toxic and draining!

    Daily catered lunches
    Pay is OK (not worth having to work 12+ hours a day)
    Casual dress code
    Health insurance is 100% paid for by the company
    On site gym

    Cons

    You will be worked like a slave. The hours are ridiculous. If you actually leave the building for lunch you will be questioned. It's very much a frat and cult like culture. They make you feel really special for being "selected" and make you feel incredibly stupid if you're not "in". They will tell you the negative reviews are fake and that's absolutely false. HR department is extremely unethical and I have never worked in a more toxic environment. DO NOT work here.

    Advice to Management

    Doesn't matter what I write here... they won't change.

    I worked at alliantgroup, LP full-time

    Pros

    The pay is honestly the only positive about this company. They are definitely willing to pay you what you feel you're worth.

    Cons

    This by far is the worst company to work for. They have a tremendous high turnover rate. They are very good at what they do with fooling you with their core values and making you to believe that they are all for "investing" in their employees and thrive off of a "transparent" culture. The money may be good but no money is worth taking for exchange for your life. They expect you to commit your entire life to their organization and question you when you leave work ON TIME or leave the office for lunch. I worked in the HR department and you would think the people who do the hiring and recruitment would be a people oriented group but it's unfortunate that this is not the case. The culture is very clickish and if you do not have that "embedded DNA" that they are looking for, you will NOT make it. They pick and choose who they want to "invest" in developing, it is definitely not all across the board. It is impossible to be the "high performer" they rave about in their core values. If you are not kissing butt and playing the game you are doomed. Avoid this place PLEASE!

    Advice to Management

    Do away with some of your directors and associate directors. They are a complete joke when it comes to ethical practices.

    Pros

    Almost a true meritocracy and much closer than most places to getting it right. If you are a type-A personality and a workaholic who doesn't mind also wasting time when more senior staff think it's time to hang out you would probably do well there.

    Cons

    There's a bit of a boy's club and while they invest a lot in the employees sometimes that means they can't admit when they need to let go of some that aren't working out and instead will get of newer talent.

    Pros

    After spending 7 years in the workforce I finally found a company that aligns with all of the things I'm looking for in a company. alliantgroup stays true to their word about rewarding people who work hard and add value, and they give you all the tools you need to excel within the company. alliantgroup offers formal training, assigns you a mentor, and places you on a team so you have the foundation you need to really grow your career within the company. The transparent management style and company culture lets you know where you stand at all times and what you need to do to get to the next level within the company. Aside from the career benefits, alliantgroup is just a fun place to come to work. For the first time I'm eager to go to work each day!

    Cons

    While this is a pro for me, it may be a con for others, and that is alliantgroup truly rewards merit over tenure.

    The fact that I don't work there anymore. The fact that someone finally published what really goes on at this company.

    Cons

    Be sure to read the latest news report regarding the actions of the CEO. Buyer beware. It's all true. It's the same behavior and "culture" that gets trickled down.
