"This place is toxic. If you are not in the "Bro Group" you will not advance. It is highly competitive in an unhealthy way. Management does not care about the employees. They take advantage of recent grads looking for work experience."

"I have worked at Alliantgroup for one year. The mission of the company is very easy to get behind and makes you feel like the work you are doing is extremely impactful. The benefits are good and the people, for the most part, are friendly and nice. However, there are aspects of the culture that make it difficult to work there. Your work performance is not valued as highly as your loyalty, devotion and adoration of the company. There is little respect for your life outside of your work and there is a strong push from management to stay after hours (sometimes until midnight) and treat your job as your life. There are few opportunities for employees to move up without compromising their personal life and values for the job. Many employees there are unhappy, making the energy and workplace environment negative and toxic."

"Oh lord where do I start. I was there for a long time and not once was I “happy”. I didn’t get my first raise until I was a year and a half in. They didn’t even notice, I setup the meeting and got one. Leaving at 6:30 pm (when your hours are done) is not a option. They get mad at you for not leaving past 7:00pm. During tax season and not during. I’m sorry but that’s freaking ridiculous! Not everyone there hates going home to their husband, wife or family. I guess some of the upper management does. They also LOVE to hire people fresh out of college because they don’t know any better. The ONLY and I mean ONLY reason there are a couple of 5 star reviews is because upper management make their employees write them when they get a raise or promoted. Now that’s just sad. Free soda and lunch…. SOO COOL. I rather go home on my lunch break than eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner with you people. They only reason they bring in free lunch is so you can’t leave the freaking office. Don’t you get it… they want you to live there! This place is falling apart fast and I will not say I’m sorry about that. If you are still there just “dealing” with it and saying to yourself it’s a job no one said it was easy. Please read all the negative reviews and take them seriously. It’s only going to get worse for you. If you are dreaming about having a family soon then you better wake up… because at alliantgroup it will not happen."

"The place is a sweatshop. The hours you have to be at the office are 9-6:30, minimum, but then you have to be available by phone and email around the clock. Including the weekends. It will feel like you work with workplace arsonists because as soon as you leave something urgent will come up and the stress they've manufactured will pressure you to deal with it. Don't waste your time and energy. There is zero work/life balance and they don't pay enough for all the drama."

"Worst company I have ever worked for. Regardless of where you work within the company, you will be treated like dirt. You will be overworked and underpaid. The prospect of working long-term for this company will lead you to an early grave. Management at all levels is terrible. Check out ripoff report if you want a better explanation of how this company operates."

"Alliantgroup offers more resources to learn and execute my job, plus, presents more advancement opportunities than any place I've seen. Women and men equally hold key positions; many of whom started at entry level positions only a few years ago.The demands and expectations are high, but the rewards are greater. In tax work, deadlines and accuracy are paramount, so mediocrity is unacceptable. Our fast growth means not everyone is up to the task. For those who can the opportunity is limitless."

"Abusive work culture and a sweat shop"

What do you like about working at alliantgroup?

"They will hire almost anybody. Due to the downturn in the economy they were able to hire some smart people who were out of a job and looking for anything."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Since people leave the company every few months, they are always looking for people. If you absolutely need to make some money then work here, but be on the look out for better opportunities. alliantgroup likes to hire graduates without any work experience so that they have no reference point to compare how bad the job is."

What don't you like about working at alliantgroup?

"alliantgroup is a sweat shop and a one trick pony. The majority of its earnings come from R&D tax credit analysis. Although the company has tried to branch out into State and Local Tax (SALT), energy tax credits etc., it has not been successful. Management micromanages everybody and demeans people on a regular basis in front of their peers. Salaries are typically 40-50% lower than a big 4 accounting firm although the stress level is almost twice that of a big 4 because the large number of clients deadlines that need to be met. 50-60 hours per week is the norm, and during tax season you will need to put in over 80 hours just to meet the deadlines. However, since you will be salaried there will be no bonuses for the overtime. Management scrutinizes employee utilization very seriously and even new hires are expected to have full work load within a few weeks of employment. alliantgroup will teach you how to apply R&D tax code to various companies, but lately the training sessions have been curtailed as there are very few senior employees. Most competent people who have other options usually leave within a year and a half. There is hardly anybody whose tenure exceeds more than 2 years. The work itself is very monotonous and boring. Most of the time, you will try to justify how a project qualifies as R&D under the 4-part test stipulated by the tax code. Sometimes when your judgment tells you that there is no R&D activity for a client, managers will force you to re do your analysis so that the company can bill the clients. Engineers and science majors who join the company soon realize that the work is purely a interviewing and writing job with very little creativity involved. Over the years many incompetent people have been promoted to management, and they will harass you on a regular basis about status updates. Lastly, questionable billing practices have prompted several customers to file suit against alliantgroup. Check out the fraud charges against the company. They are on the internet."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Stop harassing your employees and start paying more. Stop micromanaging your employees. Stop harassing your customers."
