    Pros

    Small boutique model company. Friendly and helpful culture. Good financial and health benefits. some regions have some good initiatives improve work life balance. skillful and hardworking consultants. has tons of experience in the fashion domain. I have seen people going really an extra mile to achieve deadlines. Company has been extremely understanding with employees if they are going through a rough patch in life.

    Cons

    Regions where there are only primarily onsite consultants there are no initiatives to improve work life balance or the HR involvement in the company is only limited to recruitment Has been a bit of a struggle to break a certain financial achievement for some time now Sometimes it seems bit short sighted with regard to planing (actually maybe you can say most of the time ) Micro managing do exist though I have never personally experienced it is very visible. No proper training method in place to develop internal resources.Most training session are conducted bu internal resources and sometimes it can be a blind leading a blind situation. I am a Sri Lankan and as most of the reviews said I can understand why someone would think that there is a Sri Lankan cult. But to be absolute honest there is nothing like that and the reason sometimes we change to our mother tongue and hangout together is most Sri lankan consultants who have migrated have a lot of history together and when they are back in a project together its a nice and close feeling which they might get carried away and I apologies on behalf of all of us. Sometimes company takes employees for granted. If there a mess up in the initial planning that is quickly overlooked and now the pressure is on the implementation consultants to get it done somehow.

    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.

    "Small mom-and-pop shop with no methodology or direction"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Lead Solution Architect 

    I worked at attune Consulting for more than a year

    Pros

    * Great insurance that is 100% free to the employee. * Bonus based solely on hours billed. * They pay on time. Literally one of the few pros to the entire company

    Cons

    * If you are not from Sri Lanka, you will not be there long. The turnover of Americans is astronomical. They hire when they close a deal, then lay off as soon as the deal is completed. * The company is based on a group that did an internal implementation of SAP at a fashion company in Sri Lanka. They all left and formed this company after the SAP implementation in Sri Lanka was completed. * They are a closed group, and even go as far as to speak in their native tongue of Sri Lankan at implementations so the Americans cannot understand them. * What Attune calls "Accelerators" is just configuration from previous client sites. The previous clients are not even aware of their configuration being re-sold and used at other client sites. * Your life expectancy at Attune is less than 2 years if you are American. * They pay LESS than the standard US perdiem rates per city, so you are expected to buy your own meals while on the road or just eat at fast food restaurants, and are expected to car pool to/from airports, etc. * They often give advice to clients that is the polar opposite of SAP recommended practices. * They have an extremely contentious relationship with SAP Retail. * Average size deals are under $1M and they use low-ball bids to get into mid size clients. * Customer satisfaction is typically non-existent, and as such rebates are given at many accounts.

    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.

    I worked at attune Consulting full-time for 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

    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.

    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.
