    I have been working at Avanade part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    You get your hands on pretty much anything newly released from Microsoft. Avanade offers a ton of internal and external training opportunities to stay abreast with new technologies and the work environment at the headquarters is very collaborative.

    Cons

    Career advancement at Avanade is very difficult. Although there are a lot of promotions from within, it usually is the same group of people. If senior leadership positions become available, they are typically staffed by current or former Accenture employees, upwards movement in the back office departments are very rare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Live and breath what you preach ("a great place to work") and help your valued employees to advance in their respective careers before the company turns into an Accenture subsidiary

    I have been working at Avanade full-time (more than 10 years)

    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.
