    I worked at Avanade full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    This is a great company with great people. There are many benefits to being a child company of Accenture and Microsoft. It was a great place to start my consulting career and I would recommend it to anyone that can withstand the impact to their life when it comes to travel.

    Cons

    Travel, plain and simple. I thought I could handle it, and I did for a while, but it took it's toll on myself and my wife. In the end it just wasn't a good fit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is something I believe they already do, but staff local as much as possible. I think I was involved in a downturn of the Dallas market which had me traveling out of region.

    The amount of travel that is required from management is crushing and leaves little room for a work/life balance.

    I worked at Avanade

    Pros

    For the right person out of college, Avanade can be a great start to someone'a career. Good training on Microsoft technologies witha chance to work on multiple projects.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, no one really cares about your personal advancement. The management approach overall (some exceptions) is about getting you billing, no matter what you have to do. After awhile, the travel can get to most people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about your employees future as it relates to growing future leaders.
