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

Pros

Opportunities to grow your career by working on large scale projects at big companies. Can be staffed on an Accenture team which is a further opportunity to learn. Not all work is technical delivery, some is pure consulting which for technical people is a chance to move up.

Cons

If you're staffed on a technical delivery project be prepared for 75/25 offshore/onshore ratio; in this scenario you will work 16 hour days to keep delivery on schedule. Don't bother if you can't swing a 100% travel schedule including trips to India; Avanade has a wide reach and Accenture wider still.

Advice to Management

Offer incentive based pay to solution architects who do the heavy lifting on writing proposals and winning new work.

    Pros

    It is a great place to grow your career. You get to work in many industries and get a good understanding of how different businesses operate, for better or worse.

    Cons

    I feel that once you get to a certain point in your career, there is no more up unless you leave. Career Management is poor.
