What are perks and other benefits like at Avature?

Pros

Excellent culture and environment. Decent benefits and perks and generally good relationships with middle management and teammates.

Cons

Pay is below average. Upper management is basically entirely absent, in my time at Avature I've barely noted their existence, as they haven't bothered to make themselves present. Negotiating a raise is extremely difficult, and only really considered once the threat of leaving the firm is present. Internal mobility is technically there, but is an overly lengthy process. Promotions often come way after you've already taken on the responsibilities associated with it, but not the pay raise, as was the case with myself and a few coworkers.

Advice to Management

Dramatically increase your level of engagement with employees. I understand that the point of having an office outside of the US is cheaper labor, but greater levels of compassion are necessary for greater employee retention. As an employee it's easy to feel as if you have no voice within Avature.

How are career development opportunities at Avature?

Pros

- great colleagues - good atmosphere - flexible working hours and remote working options - growing company

Cons

- work life balance, more towards work - managers do receive any type of education, coaching etc - no clear career paths, very flat organization which on the one hand is nice, on the other hand there are not a lot of growth opportunities.

Advice to Management

Dedicate resources to properly train management - and choose management based on if they are suitable to be people managers. Not all top performers are necessary good in managing a team of people. With the growth, more layers should be created to reduce heavy workload, but also offer people more growth opportunities. Make sure that people who have been with the company a long time and are performing well receive market competitive salaries.

What is the feeling of job security at Avature?

Pros

The work itself can be interesting! The clients are tough, but you meet wonderful people and can learn a lot in a short amount of time.

Cons

The company is growing rapidly, but still has the start-up mindset. They don't define jobs (they think of this as a positive thing) which leads to a lot of exploitation. It often feels that they care about filling seats, and it shows. The turnover rate for some of the key sectors are incredibly high. And other teams are either incompetent, or trying but struggling immensely as they aren't cut out for the job. There are a lot of backlogs and bottle necks which key teams (Consulting and AM) are forced to deal with. Timelines do not exist at Avature, and the only reason most projects are completed with happy clients is because of the Consultants who often have to fix the trouble made by a poor Sales team. Consulting is pushed to perform better than almost any other team, but they are paid terribly (in comparison to Sales). It's a company with poorly defined internal processes, and a management system based on familial relations and friendships. They hand out managerial and direct roles far too freely, with very few of these individuals actually taking responsibility for anything. They are exploitative. Hands down. Terrible hiring process (ironic as they preach best practice hiring methods), and terrible employee management.

Advice to Management

Change everything.

The turnover rate for some of the key sectors are incredibly high.
