    Pros

    -Feeling of community: You can draw on the knowledge others to help you solve a problem or present an idea. You are never 'on your own' unless you want to be.
    -Support to reach your potential: The people here want to see you succeed. They will give you plenty of opportunity to show your worth and grow into new roles.
    -Training: This company actually encourages training and gives you time to do it.

    Cons

    -Traveling: There can be a lot of travel. In fact up to 90% travel should be expected.
    -Long hours: Some projects are can be short but require the most of your time while you are there.
    -Demanding: Some projects are augments and require you to support what is in place or planned. Other projects require you do the job from a - z and put your best effort first.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management shares overall company direction and invites constructive input from everyone. I have found them to be available most of the time and willing to listen. My Advice? Keep that 'open door' policy in place. Not everyone feels comfortable going to the Group Manager or Director but it's good that avenue is available should the need arise.

    Current Employee - Group Manager/Solutions Architect in Seattle, WA

    I have been working at Avanade full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great place to learn a lot about consulting and technology. Lots of opportunity to grow your career from the entry level up to architects. Benefits that you don't see at other consulting companies such as training you when you are between projects (and paying you for it). Access to mentors that can provide guidance to move up the career tree for those that need a little more guidance.

    Cons

    The culture at Avanade can vary greatly from area to area which can be confusing when you are a traveling consultant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to offer more opportunities to build a cohesive Avanade culture, need to have some in person meetings (they cant all be virtual).
