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

Pros

Low stress environment. Very little customer interaction for this position. Free Microsoft Certification Testing. Opportunities to move up within the company after testing completion. Resources and assistance available 24x7.

Cons

12 hour shifts on a rotating schedule. Leadership does not coordinate well with shared sites.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Sites are not unilateral on procedures and management styles. If same procedures are being utilized then why two different sets of instructions? Accountability is skewed on site accountability depending on which manager is on shift.

    I worked at Avanade full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits for "quality of life." Given the right leadership alignment one can create opportunities for themselves within Avanade with the solid business case. Great career development model and learning/training repository. Global company provides exposure to international and diverse project work.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is hard to come by if you have a family or want any time off. Compensation is low to avg and they will take as much as you give, then ask for more. Like most companies of the similar size and model advancement opportunities are based on internal politics over achievements. Leadership is not consistent, some sectors have strong leaders while others have no business being in people/career management of any sort. For an "innovative" technology company, most of the innovation is externally focused leaving internal process and technology antiquated. Since Accenture leads and owns most of the projects, Sr level/Exec advancements opportunities are hard to come by.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hard to give advice to upper manager, as I'm not really sure how much influence they have over Accenture who pretty much runs the show.
