I worked at Avanade as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

As a contractor I was able to work remotely, great management/team structure, better than average salary & a fantastic learning experience. I worked with a group of intelligent HR professionals who helped better my career.

Cons

If you don't mind working 10+ hour days and feeling constantly glued to your laptop -- then that would be my only con. That's the case with all contract roles, especially when you're working at a higher level.

    I have been working at Avanade full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Smart, talented, highly skilled teams to work with

    Cons

    Death by legal processes. 40-50% of your time is spent doing business administration work to make sure you are policy compliant in order to sell a solution to a customer. There are reviews for determining if you can pursue a potential client all they way through the process of executing a contract.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire financial / business administrators to support the sales teams so they can focus on selling.

    I worked at Avanade full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    $2000 Technology Benefit
    Interesting colleagues
    Opportunity to get 'Brand Names' on your Resume

    Cons

    Expect 80 % travel.
    Distant, useless technical management.
    Confused relationship with Accenture
    Little/No opportunity to innovate. Expect to go middle-of-the-road with Microsoft solutions. Hope you love Sharepoint.
    You will never feel (or effectively, be) like more than a cog in the machine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Completely revised HR processes. No more Accenture-lead work.
