The company is having tendency to get more younger staffs in our country. Hope the management put more focus in retain senior staffs to achieve balance in competency level.

    I worked at Avanade full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Certifications paid for
    MSDN subscription
    Some interesting training opportunities
    Some fun team/company events (yet, fewer and fewer)
    Miraculously, there are some (albeit few) brilliant people still around. If you're lucky to be assigned to a project with good people, you can learn a lot and enjoy work.
    Benefits are decent.
    If you like travelling, you will get a lot of it in the US region.

    Cons

    - It seems mostly middle management's "B" players tend to promote the "D" players who know how to kiss a***.
    Special points if you are the conformist type who would not rock the boat (even when the boat is sinking).
    This is not a good career choice if you're career oriented and good at what you do.

    - Performance bonuses are a joke, compared to what you find in other Microsoft partners. Maximum of 3-5%, really? It is not even close to what strong talent can get elsewhere. Hence the high attrition rate. Most people I know got at least 25% raises by taking same level positions elsewhere.

    - Despite the fact they will mention Accenture to you repeatedly during the hiring process Avanade is nothing like Accenture.
    It has nothing close to the amazing training and learning opportunities of Accenture, or the career growth opportunities.
    If you are anywhere other than the US, you will have little to no opportunity to work on international projects.
    Even when Avanade allow employees to relocate between offices, it will be on their own personal expense.
    The Accenture link mostly means that you spend much of your time on staff augmentation engagement, in an Accenture project, and Accenture rejects will be parachuted into Avanade management positions (rather than promote internally).
    It is very rare, almost non-existent that a position in Avanade leads to a 1st tier consulting position as a next job.

    - Avanade's own employee's morale surveys shows that over 50% of employees "would not recommend a friend to work for Avanade". What a better indication you need that this is not a good place work for?
    This percentage has been consistently increasing in the past 6 years.
    s like these days.

    Advice to Management

    Put some hard thought into how you can make the company to a place where strong contributors want to work and stay. These are the people who can actually bring value.

    Pros

    Great technologists, global customer base, scale and reach, deep ties into Microsoft

    Cons

    Becoming a "big company", lots of matrix management, individual contribution sometimes goes unnoticed
