I have been working at Avanade full-time for more than a year

Pros

I never get hassled about travel arrangements. I typically stay at any hotels I like within reason, fly the airlines I like and always get a decent per diem. When you travel for a living, this is a big deal!

Management and teammates are typically high quality. The job has the potential to expose you to many elements of the IT world (given its Microsoft based). Lots of paid training time (80 hours a year) and the company also pays for all Microsoft Certifications (they pay for two tries per exam).

There is an opportunity to rise in the company quickly, with each promotion carrying 10-15% increases in pay typically.

Cons

The job is ALL TRAVEL! If you don't like travelling, this job isn't for you. Some projects just stink and you can do little but gut it out and hope to be on to the next soon. Every project has a new boss, some are good, some are bad. In my experience they tend to be decent or better.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on reinforcing communication between teammates. The biggest problem I encounter over and over again on projects are due to small breakdowns in communication. When everyone is working remotely, it becomes key to success.

    Pros

    Avanade is continuing to grow creating new opportunities for employees. Great benefits.

    Cons

    You need to manage your own career growth and champion your advancement for yourself. We no longer have company wide meetings which has had a negative effect on morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more opportunities for employees to grow or move into new roles. You have great employees that with some training could move into roles you have difficulty filling. Also, I would suggest re-instituting flybacks. Employees feel really disconnected and are leaving.
