Employee (Current Employee) –  Durham, NCJune 21, 2018
There are some great staff at Alliance, but they leave due to poor leadership. Fun activities and staff appreciation days are great. Great summer attire perks. The actual workers are friendly and provide good services. Benefits are good . But the “good ole boy Network” does exist here. Leadership needs help. Half of the leaders could benefit from professional coaching on how to be an effective leader in the workplace. Unfortunately they are not transparent and positions are often field by who they choose before they are even posted. Employee yearly appraisal reviews are subjective and doesn’t accurately reflect how hard you may have worked all year. It is next to impossible to get a top raise.
Pros
Staff appreciation days, summer attire, holiday festivities
Cons
Leadership, pay, no Teleworking, Not open minded

System of care Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Fayetteville, NCAugust 17, 2017
The company tries very hard to be employee-focus. They create opportunites for the employees to grow within the company; they promote within before seeking outside employees; they create an environment that is as stress-free as possible and encourage employees to network among themselves.

Currently unpredictable
Clinical - corporate site (Current Employee) –  Durham, NCJanuary 2, 2017
Do your homework before applying here. Environment and future is unpredictable; staff morale is shaky. Outside hires stand a better chance than internal advancement. Staff is great ( nice people etc...) but management needs to be more forthcoming about the state of the company. Lots of secrecy, which causes lots of speculation about job and company security. We're not fools- tell us the good and bad and let us decide if we want to ride the wave or not.
Pros
Good Benefits, generally nice staff, trainings
Cons
Unstable future, no advancement from w/in, buddy system

Toxic environment
Transition Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Fayetteville, NCJuly 30, 2016
There are some people who have been working for the county prior to the merge with Alliance who think they are some how better than the new hires or others that work under them. Such an attitude leads to toxic work environments and a feeling that you have to walk around on "eggshells" so as to keep from becoming unprofessional with those who seem to somehow think they are better than everyone else because of their positions.
Pros
Leaving, trainings
Cons
Too much micromanagement, disrespect by some supervisors, unprofessionalism

Decent company, not much room to grow
Business Analyst (Former Employee) –  Durham, NCApril 11, 2016
Decent company, not much room to grow professionally or financially. Executive management can be seen quite frequently and give you the sense that when they say open door policy they mean it.
Pros
Promotes a culture of inclusion and work life balance.
Cons
Not enough opportunities for growth professionally or financially.

A HUGE Disappointment
Community Based Services (Current Employee) –  Corporate/HeadquartersOctober 7, 2015
Promises upon hire were never met. Management plays favorites. They refuse to accept responsibility and would sooner watch the truck back over you than own up to mistakes/errors and oversights. Compensation is a joke. Certain departments do nothing (except play on their cell phones all day) while others work their tails off. Employees are not valued.
Pros
Great Ice Machine
Cons
poor management, poor compensation and favoritism

Community Relations Housing Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Durham, NCFebruary 10, 2015
A typical day at work is multi-tasking. I might be completing administrative duties, responding to a housing crisis, attending homeless meetings and providing housing information to various individuals/agencies.

I've learned that Durham County's homeless population continues to increase. The demand for housing continues to grow and the housing resources continues to be limited or non-existent.

Management has an open door policy.

My co-workers are supportive, intelligent, funny and caring.

The hardest part of my job is not having enough funding for Durham County's homeless population to sustain and maintain housing.

The most enjoyable part of my job is public speaking.
