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

    Pros

    You know you're one of the best if you're brought on. Many smart people with great ideas and supportive of your career. Enthusiasm abound and folks are passionate about their work. Leadership is trying their best to move at the speed of the market.

    Cons

    You need to know how to professionally say no as much as you say yes. It is up to you to find the most valuable opportunities and focus on them while politely declining busywork. Be careful of burn-out on travel.

    Advice to Management

    Change for the sake of change isn't always the answer. You know some markets have a limited runway. It's time to jettison the dead wood and focus on where the market is ultimately heading; SaaS integration, AI, and Security.

    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

    Pros

    Great company with smart, forward thinking, innovative people who care about your success not just the companies. Great training program and opportunity for growth if your willing to put in the work.

    Cons

    At times Work/Life Balance could be better. No other issues at this time - I enjoy working for Avanade. Go Orange!!

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the seven year sabbatical. Considering the time and hard work employees put in, two weeks additional time off after seven years is deserved.
