Pros

Avanade provides a supportive environment for learning, developing and networking among some of the most talented and creative professionals in the IT Consulting industry. A wide variety of learning programs, peer training and on-the-job learnings provide Avanade employees the opportunity to expand their knowledge base and further contribute to the organizational growth. The emphasis on developing a career path and fine tuning leadership/management capabilities assures that employees are given the tools to rise to the next level, provided they work hard, contribute regularly and display the aptitude to take the Avanade vision personally as part of their career path and goal to grow with the company.

Cons

Due to the large quantity of work and dedication involved to projects from leadership down to field level support, the work/life balance can become an issue if not continually checked and regulated.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Avanade has incredible talent, creative minds and dedicated experts who need to be both compensated fairly and recognized regularly within reason.

    Pros

    Avanade provides an amazing environment to expand both your technical and professional skills. You are never pigeon-holed to one technology, but instead you are constantly exposed to different environments, products, and challenges, allowing you to constantly improve.

    Avanade also does not limit you to what management may believe your limits are. You are constantly encouraged (and allowed) to grow your skills. You can be as customer-facing as you wish, attending meetings and interfacing with the customer one-on-one, or you can limit yourself to the technology side of things. It truly is one hundred percent under your control.

    If you do not reach your goals within the ranks of Avanade, it truly is your fault. Hard work and dedication pay off with this company.

    Cons

    Avanade does require almost constant travel and many projects do require long hours. This is a position which requires extreme dedication.

    If you have a family, you may have trouble working for Avanade unless you happen to live in an area where Avanade has multiple projects. However, every area eventually dries up and you'll find yourself back out on the road.

    Most projects with Avanade see you flying out Monday morning and returning home Thursday evening, but there are some customers who insist upon a Monday through Friday schedule. These projects cause a significant strain on your work / life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The main issue I had was a desire for a more concrete career advancement model and that is being addressed now.
