    Pros

    Great pitch for those wanting to develop a rewarding and gainful career in technology on the Microsoft platform

    Cons

    - Client selectivity is poor, likely due to rate levels and pressure to deliver results
    - Project work can be non-gainful and almost embarrassing to work on
    - Most corporate communication is content-free, almost to an intelligence-insulting degree
    - Unclear if Sr. Leadership has any real autonomy outside of Accenture

    Advice to Management

    Need to be a little more square with your employees regarding your business model. If you feel to cannot do that--that alone probably should tell you something.

    Pros

    Smart people
    Connection to Accenture
    Great Microsoft platform understanding

    Cons

    Poor capability to deliver on platform vision locally
    High overhead with little value add coming from them
    Business model is dead and they don't see it, don't see the need to talk about market realities
    Legalistic concept of relationship
    No desire to invest in partnership with customer
    No concept of partnership with partners on common terms/force the 'Avanade' way.
    Pass all risk to customers and don't take responsibility for their own failures

    Advice to Management

    Close the sub and make it a part of Accenture to lower margin demands
    Break 'partnership' with Microsoft as you are actively competing with them through acquisitions
