    Pros

    Free MSDN subscription allows you to burn DVDs.

    Cons

    Management are a bunch of clowns
    Accenture has too much influence
    Would rather sell Microsoft software licenses that do the right thing for their clients

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Avanade management should go in to entry-level fast food careers, where they MIGHT do well.

    I worked at Avanade

    Pros

    - Great training opportunities
    - If you are on a good project team things generally go very well
    - It's consulting so you get to challenge yourself at every engagement
    - Access to really smart people
    - Avanade has some of the smartest people you will ever work with when it comes to Microsoft products

    Cons

    - If you are not on a high-visibility project, your left to rot
    - Raises are minimal at best
    - Its who you know helps getting promoted atmosphere

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay consultants what they deserve and not %25 of their billable hour, focus on creating frameworks of code and internal re-usable products, don't re-invent the wheel at every engagement
