    Pros

    Great place to learn and advance. If you are a guy.

    Cons

    UCCMS Department has issues with sexism and gender discrimination. Training and promotions are often give out on a basis of favoritism and gender. Complaints about sexism are not taken seriously by management. Women are often are given leas critical tasks. Men are often given assistance with work, while women are ignored and treated as incompetent. When mistakes are made, men are treated like its no big deal, while as a woman even a small error is treated with harsh criticism. Guys are given more challenging and higher profile work. Male employees often talk down to the female coworkers.

    Advice to Management

    Think management needs replacement

    Pros

    Free Certifications
    Decent Health Benefits (you'll need them)

    Cons

    Seattle Ops building is dirty, chairs have no back support, and terrible cubicles
    Ventilation is allergy inducing.
    A very "It's all who you know." mentality
    Night shift gets no credit less something goes wrong
    A rapidly declining work/life balance
    True hard work is rewarded with more work
    Time wasting issues are never addressed.

    Advice to Management

    No amount of working your Analysts harder can fix the real problem of bad, negligligent management. It's a creating a vacuum where honest workers, people painstakingly trying to make your broken platform work, are worked into the ground while those gaming the system just to get their paycheck with minimal effort run out the door leaving the former to clean up. We have a duty to our clients to provide a functional platform for which they're paying good money for but I can't sleep knowing I'm just delivering a hype train rather a real service platform.

    Pros

    Big company with focus on training. A great place to land if you are recently out of college. Excellent benefits. Good culture in most areas of the company.

    Cons

    A lot of turn over in management. Poor work live balance. Pay in low in lower levels of the company. Very political.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out what you really want to be when you grow up. Not all business segments run like Applications Development. Think more long term in terms of keeping your clients and cut down on the politics and the various business segments

    Pros

    Company is in a sweet spot in the market as Microsoft has gotten it's mojo back. The vision and strategy for Avanade is spot on. Really good people. Avanade's resources and delivery are a notch above.

    Cons

    The challenge comes in the baggage being carried from Accenture and risk-adverse operating model. As customer move to the cloud, they are seeking faster more agile partners and Avanade isn't well positioned to capitalize on this change.

    Advice to Management

    Digitize your own business. Invest in automating key parts of customer experience to rip out cost to reduce cost to serve. The price to value ratio is out of whack
