    I have been working at Attain full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Attain is a incredible company who strives to educate, promote, and encourage hardworking consultants. I work on the Higher Education team and honestly love my job. The team I work with is collaborative, positive, and mentoring. I am very luckily to often work with our CEO, partners, and clients. I started at Attain as a senior analyst and was quickly promoted to consultant. I have been given leadership opportunities to present to clients, manage projects, and develop strategies.

    Attain has invested in my future by providing a Prosci Change Management certification opportunity and this year I am working with them to obtain my PMP. If you are willing to work hard, stay organized, and believe in the Attain values it is a positive place to work to advance your career and build strong business relationships along the way.

    One of my favorite elements of Attain is, since it is smaller (550 employees) and quickly growing, you can develop ideas and they can actually be implemented. I have had the great opportunity to pitch ideas regarding the company to leadership and we are in the process of making them happen. It is an agile company open to feedback.

    Attain has a laid back environment with no micromanagement. I work from home in the morning and head to the office around 10 - 11am to miss traffic. It's great.

    Cons

    Attain is a perfect fit for me and my personality. If you're looking for a job that you can be lazy at, stay in your own bubble, and not build relationships this is not the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a monthly email marketing campaign/blog which showcases the immense knowledge of our teams.

    I have been working at Attain part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I am very happy with Attain. I have been with the company a little more than 6 months and have enjoyed every minute of it. I work part time remotely. Management in the Financial Aid Management and Student Services division trust their employees to get the job done. There is no micro-managing. Because I am part time, I can't truly speak to the benefits but the pay is great!

    Cons

    There is little guidance in regards to projects. Thankfully, I have a good relationship with my manager and am comfortable asking questions.

    Pros

    The company cares about their employees. Benefits are great! They encourage you to broaden your goals and move up the ladder when the opportunity opens up for you.

    Cons

    I wish the pay was better as I had to take a small pay cut to come to this company. This encourages me to apply for other positions within the company when the opportunity comes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    I worked at Attain full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get paid on time. Frankly, I have worked for several federal contractors and Attain has absolutely nothing that they do that is better than any other contracting company.

    Cons

    Having been in government contracting for 20 + years, it's my humble yet well formed opinion opinion that indeed Attain only manages to bring in so much business because they pitch government contracts on "cheap", fill all the positions with "cheap" junior developers realizing full and well that losing X number of contracts because of low quality is a business decision. They have created a perfect vehicle for churning government contracts. My own communications went to the level of an Attain VP and I found him to be evasive and non-committal. Project managers will tell you practically anything to get you on board. Ultimately, I ended up leaving on my own terms which turned out to be the best thing ever. I recommend Attain to no one in my network, and in fact, I go out of my way to discourage working for them because federal contracts are a dime a dozen in DC and you don't want to work for Attain THAT badly (Unless you're really junior, starting a career and then making a swift exit)

    Advice to Management

    At some point, customer service is important. You should really focus on that because you're reputation is only going to suffer more.
