    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.

    I worked at Avanade full-time

    Pros

    Smart technical folks, interesting technical challenges. Many opportunities to interact with clients and customers.

    Cons

    Internal politics and lack of effective feedback mechanism cause most projects to fail. All technical work was analyzed by management folks who may or may not have technical background resulting in poor decision making.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the top heavy overhead. Put technically savvy people in charge of technical projects and let them run with the ball.

    Pros

    Culture has a community and network feel to it. Meet and work with people from all over the US and possibly other countries, either virtual or in person. Travel will mostly likely be required in some cases. There are plenty of training modules.

    Cons

    Could be long hours depending on where you work.

    Pros

    Engaged leadership
    Intelligent coworkers
    Highly motivated individuals
    Always the first to work with new technologies
    Exposure to new clients, cities, and colleagues

    Cons

    The traveling consultant lifestyle is not for everyone
    Not a great work-life balance
    Barely any focus on team building or growing people

    Advice to Management

    I think that Manager level and above should be actively engaged in building teams, Career Advisors should be encouraged to have lunches/dinners with their counselees, there should be a better focus on individual growth within the company

    Pros

    Solve cool business problems
    Extended benefits
    There are some good people in the organization
     Company has potential to do great things if Accenture can get out of their way

    Cons

    Inconsistencies throughout the regions
    Accenture creates hostile work environments. Openly make racist or other inappropriate comments
    Regional leadership operates without values
    The work environment does not embrace diversity or respect
    Problem makers outnumber problem solvers
    Unsophisticated organization
    Incompetence at very high levels

    Advice to Management

    Reboot
    Poll employees about the strength of their Regional leadership and goal RE's on those sat scores
    Change starts at the top. Some regions are allowing patients run the asylum.
