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

    Pros

    Quality training. Great delivery methodology. Nice events - they truly make an effort to connect consultants. Get to work with very competent team members.

    Cons

    Archaic annual review process. The process is horrible and it is all about who knows who. They actually get everyone in a room for a level above candidates being stack-ranked and talk about each candidate. Keep in mind 90% of the people in the room don't know the candidates.

    May not be staffed on a company project, but instead be staffed on an Accenture project where Avanade employees are not treated very well.

    Very much a good ole boy network that I thought was gone from the workplace until joining Avanade.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at your Houston office - why are so many good management-level people dissatisfied?
    Find a better way to stack rank instead of calibration meetings.
    Get "direct" business instead of demotivating staff with working on Accenture projects. If we wanted to work on Accenture projects, we would have applied at Accenture.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO
