    Great Opportunities, Crappy Life Balance

    Senior Consultant (Former Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsThis 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.

    ConsTravel, 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 Senior ManagementIt 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Recruiting at Avanade

    Manager (Former Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsFor 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.

    ConsUnfortunately, 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 Senior ManagementCare about your employees future as it relates to growing future leaders.
