    I have been working at Avanade full-time

    Pros

    Well work life balance and a lot of training opportunities. Kudos recognition is awesome. Every employee appreciates being recognized for hard work.

    Cons

    Pay scale is very low compared to market. Other competitors and even parent company Accenture + Microsoft offers better packages.

    Advice to Management

    Please reevaluate pay scales for all employees based on skills and provide competitive packages to keep talented people. Cost of living is rising which is causing many good talent people to look for others options to earn more and eventually move out. Every employee at earns enough when staffed to get paid competitive salaries.
