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

    Pros

    I consulted to Attain for 4-years prior to joining them on a full time basis. My experience has been extremely positive throughout my tenure. In my role, I work closely with Attain’s client teams to capture and retain business. In all of the efforts I have supported, never have I seen words in the proposal mean anything less than what they say – Attain is committed to delivery excellence and client satisfaction – that is what is written and that is what is intended. Although I have no direct involvement with clients, I am incented to contribute to their success and am rewarded for doing so.
    Pros
    - Core values are communicated and enacted
    - Employees are encouraged to chart an accelerated career path
    - Quality of life matters – while hard work is expected, the conditions are excellent and quality effort is rewarded
    - Corporate sponsorships (e.g. National Kidney Foundation, Women’s Center of VA) are socially relevant

    Cons

    If you need to be told exactly what to do every work day, this company is not for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep promoting Attain's core values - they are genuine and are applicable both professionally and personally.

    Pros

    Partners have a long history of working together despite the company being less than 6 years old. Pay was on the higher end of the market.

    Cons

    Very little infrastructure to support a growing business. While given the charge to develop process (records management, deal tracking, etc.), every attempt made to establish essential business processes was not supported. No real team effort or collective focus on overall success, only personal success mattered. office politics at its worst.

    Pros

    Govt contract grabber. So there you go, if you wanna work as a contractor to the US Govt. Even though they do not get contracts these days but still.

    You get your paycheck on time.

    Cons

    1. Bad management
    2. Very non-personal even though small
    3. Business is slow and they do not have a lot of contracts
    4. Striving for growth opportunities is only limited to their speech for the annual party

    Advice to Management

    1. Please focus on business and get enough contracts to give challenging work to the employees.
    2. Do not lie.

    Pros

    Little/no oversight by management (I guess that's positive)

    Cons

    Some of the partners appear only interested in picking up their paychecks; have no interest in their staffs work or career goals or success

    Advice to Management

    Get some real managers in there, or hang it up
