    The best reason to work at Avanade is the amazing people that work there. The general consulting force is astonishingly good at what they do, and although the technical skill level has dropped slightly as we've grown, overall it is still amazingly high. Having the opportunity to work on varied projects is great, as it can give you exposure to many industries and corporate cultures. It is also good for the ego, as you realize that not many companies have the skill level that Avanade does.


    The company growth rate is insane; double digit targets every year since we started - even through the economic crash and the dot-com bubble bursting. While this could be viewed as an impressive achievement, you should realize that the pressure to hit these targets imbues a culture of working your b**t off to get jobs done. Although the company touts the work-life balance as a focus, it has become distinctly skewed towards the Accenture-like culture as we have grown.

    Advice to Management

    Take your foot off the gas! Also, the focus on *everyone* being chargeable is unhealthy; learn to invest in a few good people to grow assets, opportunities, and grow the company brand and vision. Making everyone at the Area and Global level chargeable is ridiculous; you cannot be chargeable for 50% of the time, and when you get buried on a project that just keeps extending with no opportunity for escape - you cannot achieve the growth goals that are set for that role.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Avanade (Los Angeles, CA) in November 2015.


    I applied for the Business Analyst position in October 2015 for the Los Angeles office. It was a very straightforward interview process. I went to their table at my university career fair, and they were very nice. The next day, I met with them in our career center for a 30-minute interview (more of an overview of my resume, why I wanted to do consulting, basics of the application process). About a month later, I had my second round interview. It was with a current consultant. The first 15 minutes were some questions he had for me. The next 30 minutes were dedicated for me to lead the interview and "pick" his brain for any and all information I wanted to know. The topics were up to me, but I asked about the life of a consultant, the day-to-day tasks and career planning in the company, etc. This was very valuable, so come with questions beforehand. About a month later, I was invited to the final round in-house interview, which consisted of one interview with a manager and a group case presentation. After their initial presentation, I had a single interview with one of the managers who was in charge of the group I applied for (BA for me, SD or SE for other people). The interview was relaxed and was more an opportunity for me to speak with someone who had been with the company for a while and see if this was a good fit for me. The main part of the in-house interview came with our group case. We were given the prompt the day before, but we got the "ask" the day of. It wasn't a technical case, as it focused more around the requirements gathering from the "CEO" and then presenting our conclusion in an effective way.
