    I have been working at Avanade full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Avanade is really making headway on its desire to lead clients to their digital vision
    Project work has been in the new technologies and lots of client involvement
    Management pushes you to take on more but also supports you
    Good training and you are encouraged to take it

    Cons

    Long hours
    If you get on an Accenture project it depends on the manager you get - can be fine or can be hell

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in the new technologies and training like RPA and AI

    I have been working at Avanade full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Good time off
    Flexible working
    Fully support the family life

    Cons

    It can be long hours at times. A typical consultancy in that way, but it depends a lot on the client, rather than being driven by the company itself

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with the compensation and benefits increase, keep being outstanding in the market and make it even more so

    I worked at Avanade (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Avanade Asia Singapore is a multi-cultural company where different races come to work as one. The company promotes work-life balance. It drives employees to do their best by giving free brown-bag sessions and free Microsoft certifications.

    Cons

    I don't think any downside working in this company. Only thing that an employee has to know is that like any other IT consulting firm, they have to be very open-minded in learning new technologies and be able to adapt quickly in different work setup as and when deployed to different project locations. This is, on the other hand, a great way to enhance interpersonal skills.

    I have been working at Avanade full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Avanade does work in a huge range of industries, allowing for career exposure to many different project types and business cultures. Avanade is highly focused on employee growth, and leadership is comprised mostly of great people who are committed to personal growth opportunities. As part of Accenture, Avanade is also part of a much larger company that drives career growth opportunity.

    Cons

    Avanade's horizontally-oriented organization favors self-starters and people who have strong social skills. Sometimes finding the best opportunities is a matter of guiding your own agenda.

    I worked at Avanade full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent salary and benefits. Work from home. Cool people to learn from.

    Cons

    Super unorganized. You could literally become a Milton from Office Space at this company and they wouldn't even know you existed. You get 50+ emails (few are actually relevant) and people miscommunicate often. Working from home sounded like a dream, but really all it did was make me feel like I didn't even have co-workers. The office was always empty.

    Advice to Management

    Require a few days a week in the office to build the team otherwise you'll continually lose new hires after a year or two.

    Pros

    They help pay for Microsoft Dynamics certifications.

    Cons

    They are known to make empty promises and keep
    people on bench, and then eventually, people are laid off.

    Advice to Management

    Don't make empty promises to your employees.
    Adjust your budgets to appeal to smaller clients.

    Pros

    Global footprint, depth of knowledge, positive environment, growth oriented, ethical, exciting.

    Cons

    Workload can get heavy at times: It's up to you to ask for help when you need it, you will be supported.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going - it's tough for a 25,000 person organization to keep up with double-digit growth. You don't get it right *every* time. But your record is pretty stellar.
