    I have been working at Avanade full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Corporate community genuinely interested in your growth and development; multiple resources to help you in all aspects of your life; generous benefits across a range of services (healthcare, mobile phone, etc); corporate discounts at tons of vendors (cars, phones, gyms, etc).

    Cons

    Most positions require 50%+ of travel; for example, I fly 4 hours to the client site Sunday night or Monday morning, then return late Thursday.

    Pros

    Avanade invests greatly in college grads. You get a significant amount of training and you have the opportunity to learn a little bit of everything. You WILL travel this could be a pro or con. Extended benefits is also a great thing!

    Cons

    A lot of the time you will work on things you're not passionate about. Don't expect to be a specialized developer unless you're a Manager or above.

    Advice to Management

    Less stress on making your Analysts chargeable and more on letting them projects they want to do. At the end of the day it is about making money, but we should be able to say no without fear.

    Pros

    Latest technology and innovative solutions for the modern workplace. Extremely professional and talented peers. Genuine focus on providing lots of training and matching consultants to projects that excite and challenge them.

    Cons

    Always changing ... which is also a pro if you love improving things for the better.

    Advice to Management

    To grow women (and all talent) in STEM we need to find innovative ways to offer them consultant careers (dynamic, interesting & lots of training) while also considering the workplace. If consultants work virtually for most of the project and only travel to client for priority meetings I think we’d appeal to a much wider talent group. Plus, we’d be saving money for our clients and demonstrating our vision to be the leading digital innovator.
