I have been working at Avanade

Pros

Avanade is a great place to work to develop your technical ability. You are frequently challenged, doing meaningful work for frequently demanding clients.

As a former manager put it, "by the time Avanade is called in to a project, the sh*t has typically hit the fan. A project is flagging and needs to be put back on course or some solution needs to be delivered yesterday. So by definition, our work is demanding"

Cons

As a decentralized consulting firm, its easy to get lost in the siberian outpost of "client site". Its very easy to feel like you work for the client over Avanade and it takes effort to maintain a good strong connection to the mothership particularly on long running projects.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think turn over would be very much improved if the firm focused more on binding together disparate groups instead of the constant decentralization and sub divisions. An emphasis on developing a stronger culture of what it means to work here would be helpful.

    Cons

    1) Pay is generally lower than most other firms.
    2) They will lowball you with a low starting salary, but the pay hike is good.
    3) Big Corporation feel. almost like a small fish in the big sea (might be good or bad).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership should take a moment to consider opinions and viewpoints from people below them and not just people at their level and above them.
