Why work at Avanade?

Working at Avanade offers you a chance to do what you love while collaborating with talented people on a mission to help our customers succeed.

Here are a couple of videos that speak to our commitment to diversity and inclusion, and how they integrate with everything we do (scroll below for more information, and please press the Pause button on any video in progress before playing additional videos):

 

 

"Companies need to have a diversity and inclusion strategy because it is the right thing to do. And personally I think that should be enough of a reason. But as a CEO, I also need to be conscious of the ROI of our strategic imperatives. And there is a strong business case for having a diversity and inclusion strategy that includes increasing our global competitive advantage, enhancing our engagements with customers and engaging our talent. I am committed to making this strategy a success and I am counting on each of our people to do likewise."  Adam Warby, CEO

Thinking globally, acting locally

To achieve Adam's aspiration we think globally and implement locally in the areas and regions we do business. We recognize the importance of having a global strategy that ties us all together across the fabric of Avanade; however, the importance of local context for driving diversity and inclusion strategies will ultimately create success.

Our strategic focus has been to create a strong, shared understanding of what diversity and inclusion mean at Avanade, ensuring ALL of our employees' diversity, talents and skills are leveraged to ensure competitive advantage for us in the marketplace. In the future, we will constantly challenge ourselves to implement diversity and inclusion tactics to attract, develop and keep a diverse employee workforce across the company.

Ongoing Programs

Avanade has a growing and significant list of diversity-related actions and activities:
* Our largest effort to date focused around International Women's Day (IWD). We hosted 29 regional round-table events in over 20 countries, where we challenged our employees to come up with 101 ideas on how better to attract, develop and retain women at Avanade.
* Instituted our Global Women's Planning and Steering Committee to bring together Avanade women to focus on global pipeline issues.
* Established our first Global Employee Resource Group, the LGBTQA employee resource group.
* Implemented a learning and development program to expose our senior leaders to a broad set of experiential educational opportunities.

    Pros

    Being owned by large and prestigious companies, Accenture and Microsoft, at Avanade there is a strong, collaborative culture that everyone is willing to help each other out, despite if you a new analyst, or a Sr. Director who's been there for over 10 years. You control your own career and the pace of where you want to go with guidance if you need it.

    Cons

    At times work/life balance can be difficult, it comes with the consulting lifestyle and is something you must be willing to compromise with at times.

    Interview Details

    Applied only and it took a couple of weeks to receive a response. There were a total of 4 interviews, the first one is with HR. Second interview is with a current Systems Engineer and the last two interviews take place the same day on-site. Overall the hardest part is the group exercise.
