What it's like to work at Alliant

  • Alliant is the first company that has made it a point for employees to set a development plan for themselves & allow employees to work towards a better ‘me’ – both personally & professionally.

    Kate Plata
  • Alliant’s focus on work-life balance is a key tenet of the company’s value proposition. Employees are expected to work hard, but there is also an equal and honest focus ensuring employees are balancing that with sufficient personal time.

    Matt Dempsey
  • I have worked for a big bank and a mid-sized bank, so I can tell you first hand the difference in culture from those other work environments. I actually feel like a person who matters, not only in the job that I do, but that I am not just a number here.

    Priscilla Tolemy
  • Alliant promotes using your vacation time and when you take a week off no one makes you feel guilty for it! Management is very understanding when “life happens” moments arise and this makes requesting time off much easier.

    Mallory Hooker
  • I find a really good work-life balance at ACU, we can work hard on a project yet, have flexibility and celebration with team members.

    Barbara Sell
  • My boss encourages us to use our PTO and take mental health days as needed. She also understands that life happens and sometimes we need to adjust our work schedule to take care of ourselves and our family.

    Kendra Sutter
  • Alliant has given me a tremendous opportunity to grow, implement ideas and build the employee communications and experience strategies. I love my job, and I love the fact that each day gives me an opportunity to make a difference.
