Pros

Avanade is a good company with good fortune 100 type clients. I enjoyed the recognition of working for a big playing in the consulting field. It also helped to have Accenture as a parent company. They were able to throw tons of work over the wall. I never feared the company would run out of growth opportunities.

Cons

When working at Avanade you have to do a bunch of traveling. Basically you trade in your social life. When I worked at Avanade I spent about 90% of my time working at the client's site. That mean 8-12 hours of travel a week plus 40 hours of billable time.

Advice to Management

Please figure out a way for Avanade to do what it does with out putting people on the road 4-5 days a week.

    Pros

    Great people, excellent opportunities, good support. Avanade is a very flexible workplace and it does a great job supporting employees with training opportunities. For those who like variety, Avanade is the place to be. You have a pick of work but as a consultant you will never own it.

    Cons

    Pay is low for entry level employees. College hires are leaving and have left in droves. Avanade pay is painfully low and does not improve appropriately. They get the young people cheap, the guys get the experience and then leave. There is really no reason to stick around.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the entry level employees better in order to stop the exodus. The movement towards the Accenture model is not an improvement. Program Managers are not technical enough.
