Pros

Over the past twelve years I've had the opportunity to grow my career at Avanade. While market conditions have sometimes dictated how, I have always been able to influence the trajectory and velocity of my career development in roles ranging from consulting, to project management, to industry, to sales, to sales management, to practice management. Avanade as a consultancy isn't for every customer or every employee but it is generally very good at what is set up to do, enterprise scale systems integration and outsourcing on the Microsoft platform. The people at Avanade are at the top of their game and the company is commited to developing its talent.

Cons

Avanade is a large organization made larger by the close ties to its parent, Accenture. Sometimes it can feel like you're an employee number rather than a person.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get the brand out. Most people I speak with still have never heard of Avanade and within 10 seconds the conversation always turns to who the parent companies are. Formula 1 isn't going to do it.

    Pros

    It is a close knit community. There aren't any layers of management between the entry level position and the Directors

    Cons

    Working on Accenture Engagements can be a pain. You don't feel like a peer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Kick Accenture's butt

    Pros

    Great coworkers, great pay, great chance for promotion, great benefits. They really take care of their people here at Avanade. Overall great culture.

    Cons

    Non existent training for programmers, you have to train yourself. No work life balance, be prepared to work 12 to 16 hour days. If you are just coming out of school, make sure you are ready for this place, it is non stop work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are going to hire programmers out of school, give them actual training like you do for the business guys.
