    Pros

    Good to start off your career. You will learn so much in so little time.

    Cons

    It is up to you to make the best of your career. It is not really a con depending on the type of person one is.

    Advice to Management

    So far, management has been great. They will give you an opportunity to either sink or swim. That really depends on you.

    Pros

    You'll find that the people at Avanade are real, and they're diverse. Executives are accessible which is a rarity for companies of this size. And, they don't just talk the diversity talk, they live it. People from all over the world with all different backgrounds have come call Avanade home. The in-person onboarding experience was one of the best I've experienced - especially for the consulting industry. The company is also highly digital - allowing you to work whenever, wherever needed. Traveling consultants also get the benefit of working globally.

    Cons

    The company is so large that it can feel overwhelming - if you don't put in the effort to stay connected and grow, it would be easy to feel lost.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the live streaming of events - it's makes the employees feel globally connected.

    Avanade is always concerned about your knowledge. For that, they offer online courses, certifications and incentivate networking between employees and partners. We have theirs commitment about what we are doing and what we are thinking about our position at company.

    Cons

    At this time, I have nothing to say.

    Pros

    Deep technical projects will keep you challenged and there is a lot of depth in your peers

    Cons

    a little disorganized when it comes to staffing a project. You have to stay on top of it all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Get to a point where Avanade is not so dependent upon Accenture infrastructure. We have the technical expertise, why not use it?

    Pros

    Mitarbeiter werden wertgeschätzt. Man arbeitet in interessanten, herausfordernden Kundenprojekten in Teams mit Kollegen aus allen Ländern (Europa, Indien, Philippinen, USA, ...). Karriereprozeß und Gehaltsentwicklung sind offengelegt.

    Cons

    Work-Life Balance ist im Consulting natürlich weniger möglich, die Definition von Work-Life Balance ist aber auch sehr subjektiv.

    Advice to Management

    Weiter so mit der Offenheit in der Kommunikation. Leben der Unternehmensgrundsätze ist meines Erachtens vorbildlich. Detailliertere Kommunikation der finanziellen Jahresziele wäre wünschenswert.

    Pros

    Great place to grown from analyst to manager in a technical career. Plenty of support and advantages to create a tech path.

    Cons

    It's very complicated to continue a technical path if you think above Manager. The natural path is to turn into business and it can be very complicated.

    Advice to Management

    Please adapt to the new way agile enterprises are working. The slow motion in business is getting more and more complicated.

    Pros

    Surrounded by smart people, customer facing resources are quick to be promoted, free money every year to buy gadgets, pays quickly with no delay on travel reimbursements, politics exist but there are no issues with going around it. In short if you like to work and get along with others the sky is the limit.

    Cons

    Non customer facing resources are slow to be promoted, air travel is billed to central card so you no longer get points.

    Advice to Management

    The day you become to important to talk/listen to your employees then you are no longer Avanade material and it is time to retire.
