    I have been working at Attune full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Expert team of hardworking and knowledgeable consultants in SAP AFS. Global company with broad technology expertise in the fashion and lifestyle space. Great benefits and very collaborative environment.

    Cons

    Extremely challenging work in a fast paced environment (not a con) - so if you are not a high achiever don't work here.... Many people can't keep up with this team/ company so if you know your pace is slow, look elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Insurance is good. That's the only Pros.

    Cons

    It's the worst company to work for. They don't know the proper methodology to implement SAP. They can't find and close the projects. Lots of micromanagement. Higher level folks doesn't know what they are doing. If you are not Sri Lankan then don't expect to be treated equally. There will not be any growth. You will be in same position for years no matter how talented you are. Work life balance is a disaster. They ask to car pool from the airport and to and from office while on project.

    Pros

    Small niche SAP partner consulting practice focused on Fashion ONLY. Great benefits and people.

    Cons

    Company tries to act like a software applications development company which they are not and lack the technical leadership to develop solutions. This company takes care of their own.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to consulting and implementing SAP products.

    I worked at Attune full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay is relatively good for a small company. Benefits are also good - 401k vests immediately. They specialize in "fashion" to be specific they specialize in AFS!

    Cons

    * micromanagers everywhere ..
    * Sri Lankan based with VERY large cultural gap! I never realized this was an issue until a few weeks with the company and you will be considered a 2nd rate citizen. Why did their longterm HR person, top retail consultant, project managers, top sales person walk out the door?
    * No methodology. Attune tells clients they have one & claim they have best practice documents, which did not exist when I was there. Now they are trying to create these documents. the person leading the effort has little/no ASAP methodology experience
    * they specialize in AFS not Retail or FMS (which is based upon Retail). Be careful when you hear about their over ambitious plans.
    * people over embellish the truth - employees act they know everything and the culture does not condone people for speaking without knowledge. Ask them how their relationship is with SAP?
    * custom developed products have performance & security issues
    * constant fire drills to prepare for "customer meetings" only to have them cancelled last minute
    * no one takes responsibility/accountability, everyone plays hot potato and passes the buck.

    Pros

    Good benefits, travel typical for industry

    Cons

    Sri Lanka based and if you are not from there then considered a 2nd rate citizen. PMs and VPs lack common sense and knowledge of way SAP work. CEO is not very capable. Sales team limited clients they can chase and once they actually get a chance then they don't have knowledge to close deal.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of all of the people you " On shored" and rebuild with qualified consultants

    Pros

    Excellent opportunities to apply your knowledge. Good to experienced consultants to show and provide advanced business support.

    Cons

    Bad for begginers and intermediate candidates, bad if you are not able to integrate with hindu ideology due you'll not get support from them and is the main gross of the team members, they are not able to provide you right and on time information except if you're constantly follow them, hard to get and share information between different work teams.

    Advice to Management

    Excellente management team members, very professional and always delivering outstanding results.

    Pros

    Team of good consultants with equally good knowledge and talent.
    consultants blend well, Asian to European to american..............

    Cons

    Bad Management practice, overall plan on growth is very short term...
    Leave policy sucks, you die before you can enjoy the money you earn, not something you would want to look forward to.
    New policies add up everyday to cut down costs, and for the company to benefit, not realizing the harm it does to keep a better culture within.
    Very bad management practice in handling situations as such., showing no difference to any cheap desi company.
    No professionalism with most management personal or even with Professional Service Directors...

    Does the same mistake over and over again, not people oriented, just money minded cheap attitudes, not the typical standard that a professional would take up or continue.
    Not carrier plans for employees., , Management practice is as such they think SAP Consulting is just as simple as working at a fast food restaurant., therefore see no value for the profession.

    Advice to Management

    Company growth breaks the real attune culture,.. breaks the real meaning of growth!!, high time to understand it and work on it.
