Avanade – Why Work For Us?

The Avanade Story

Alone, innovation offers potential. But when the power of people meets the Microsoft ecosystem, we can change everything. At Avanade, we redefine workplaces and reimagine the possibilities of life.

When bold thinking meets passionate people, we empower companies on their journey to a digital workplace. We help Delta enable its employees to work in new ways and we give educational organizations like Open Universities Australia the power to understand what the future looks like. When new technologies meet optimistic people, we can reimagine what's possible in our time and bring it to life every day.

When innovation meets inspiration, we empower the next generation, bring diverse perspectives to our clients and open new opportunities for young people and their communities across the globe.

Our focus on technology drives us to create change every day. Our shared desire to make a genuine human impact inspires us. Our constant mission is to inspire and delight clients today, tomorrow, and in the years to come.

When we innovate with passion and purpose, deliver with excellence, act with integrity and respect and believe that everyone counts, when we bring together technology and human ingenuity, we change things for the better. For him, for her, for you. That’s Avanade. That’s #HumanImpact

    I have been working at Avanade full-time (More than 10 years)


    Superior consulting acumen and technical talent spanning the Microsoft ecosystem which allows our people to build integration skills well-beyond just the Microsoft platform.
    Avanade is a JV of Accenture (top industry consulting expertise in the world) and Microsoft (top enterprise technology software provider in the world) and therefore is able to bring value to our clients at scale.
    Avanade's annual workplace survey continues to trend positively given the company's commitment to our people.


    Everyone doesn't always get the opportunity to work on cutting-edge projects but many do. Also, being part of Avanade's consulting workforce may result in travel-based assignments (something which is fine with some consulting resources, but is challenging at time for others).

    Advice to Management

    Continue building the skills (both consulting and technical acumen) of Avanade's existing resources and continue to hire new talent from the market. Given the rotation to the new, continue to incent employees to make this rotation faster as the market is very competitive.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Avanade (Seattle, WA) in March 2016.


    First a phone screen where the recruiter gets to know your background and experiences. Then a final group orientation with individual interviews and networking. They give you an introduction to their internship program and then split you into individual interview sessions with a professional while in the mean time you network with the professionals that work there as well as other candidates. They also had us relax by participating in a team activity. Finally, they contact you after letting you know whether you got the internship position or not.
