What People Say About Us

“I needed a comprehensive update of our base salary system – alignment to market, updated salary structures, pay ranges and rethinking our policies. And without the expertise internally to know where to start or what to do, having an experienced compensation consultant with specific experience work with us and navigate the project was invaluable. The partnership was exceptional, Jim truly sought to understand our business needs and deliver a workable solution… from updating job descriptions to identifying market data to detailed analysis to manager and employee training, the support was outstanding. Now I use Alliance as our staff expert to keep us aligned with our pay philosophy and strategy every year and to lead training for our managers. “

“I led Global Total Rewards when the Alliance team were all at Cisco, and they all helped shape and drive a significant transition in the company’s rewards strategy, worked extremely well together and with stakeholders at all levels of the organization, and are all deep subject matter experts that can bring tremendous experience and insight to most any kind of compensation challenge.”

“My experience with this team is that of a true partnership. They have supported Ben Bridge Jeweler for almost five years. Their valuable expertise and practical experience in strategy development and building practical tools has been instrumental in defining our Compensation and Total Reward Plan. Their assistance in identifying market information for pay and helping us apply it to our pay structure using practical tools such as pay ranges and merit increase pool process for sales and corporate office positions was critical for our next step in our business model. Not only do I appreciate their commitment, my peers on the executive team value their work and they look forward to the compensation consultant partnership for years to come.”

“Alliance Compensation is our trusted partner enabling our rewards strategy. They helped us update our compensation philosophy & strategy and ensure that we are providing competitive pay to attract critical talent and reward our top performers. Additionally, they helped us become more self-sufficient in understanding which salary range update approach (simple vs. detailed) is best based on when the ranges were last updated. We are very pleased with the results and would recommend them as your go-to compensation consultant given their expertise, experience, and the excellence in the work they do.”
