I have been working at Avanade full-time

Pros

They pay for Microsoft Certs. Overtime pay on top of salary for Analyst levels. Ability to work remotely at times depending on the project.

Cons

Below average salary, very poor work/life balance. Not the place to work if you have a family, a social life, or both. The expectation is to work all your waking hours and the weekends if necessary, due to poor estimations and project management. Management is very poor. Can be somewhat of a frat-party. Not a lot of career growth opportunity for your skill position, career paths follow a more general "consultant" flow. They also hire people just to put bodies into positions, even if they don't have all of the necessary skills.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Compensate your employees fairly and be reasonable and respectful with their time.

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

    Pros

    Interesting projects for large clients. Exposure to many different people and clients.

    Cons

    Constant travel to clients. Some projects work with Accenture which means you are just labor for their poorly run projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Discuss the philosophy of the company upfront when interviewing. Talk about how the goal is to have employees billable 100% of the time and if the client wants you to travel that can mean 100% travel.

    Current Employee - Group Manager  in  Seattle, WA
    Current Employee - Group Manager in Seattle, WA

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

    Pros

    Project based consulting will give you a lot of experience very quickly. Will have access the cutting edge Microsoft technologies. If you prove yourself and drive your career, Avanade will take risk and let you accelerate quickly. Ability to move around company Internationally with ease. Great training and access to Avanade and Accenture resources. If you are in consulting, you are the product and are treated well. World class training.

    Cons

    Not for people who want an "8 hour day" career. Must be self driven to progress. High chance of travel if not located in a client area. Many times sub to Accenture. Moderate pay to other consulting companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not forget original vision and culture of Avanade. Ensure continuous growing of base.
