I have been working at Avanade full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great training available whether internal or external for many different technologies and soft skills. Great starting company for those who love travel and want to be client facing team members, or for those who prefer working local, there's also local options to mitigate the amount of travel. Many opportunities arise to take control of one's career and learn and use the latest technologies.

Cons

Sometimes the person mentoring oneself is not on the same project as oneself so they cannot see first hand their pupil's day to day work. This disconnect can sometimes be bad especially when the mentor is asked to vouch for their pupil.

Advice to Management

There needs to be more opportunities to meet and greet with the executive leadership as well as regional leadership to keep folks more connected in person rather than just fostering and forming virtual connections.

    I worked at Avanade full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    MSDN and Books 24x7 subscriptions

    Cons

    Lied to about everything having to do with the job. Accenture is in charge and Accenture's management is comprised of people that lack basic communication and project management skills. I met some great people that were hired at the same time based on the same things I was told, everyone has left.

    Advice to Management

    Get the real information from Accenture before putting people on projects. Do not make work/life balance a selling point when you really have no idea.
