    Pros

    Exposure to large deals coming from Accenture. Majority of projects are sold by Accenture.

    Benefits are good, but not as good as Microsoft.

    Great training is provided to develop technical skills

    Cons

    Employee reviews are not accurate. They tell you one thing and then surprises at end of year. HR does not stand up to managers, even when they are innacurate and wrong. when you complain of injustice nothing happens.

    Lots of travel required so work life balance is not good.

    pay is lower than market.

    Advice to Management

    Need stronger leaders. Most AGEs are weak business people and do know how to manage people.

    Pros

    -VERY smart people - top notch consultants
    -notion of stablity is a huge plus- Avanade has been in business over 9 years, long relative to other Microsoft Gold-Certified Partners
    -great benefits
    -unsurpassed credentials for work and assets on Microsoft platform
    - high customer satisfaction rankings support the above

    Cons

    All of the pros make Avanade seem a no-brainer. But the downsides -
    -HR has an emphasis on career planning - but this is rarely realized in reality, in reality this is a top-heavy organization providing little opportunity for advancement
    -clubby atmosphere inhibits career advancement - this seems most pronounced for virtual employees
    -regrettable lack of sales-savvy - not an 'everyone sells' culture
    -heavy on process, often for process' sake

    Advice to Management

    If Avanade could live its core values, many of these cons would go away. Additionally, the 'Customer Centric Organization' rings hollow for those in the customer-facing ranks who are daily faced with impediments and roadblocks to serving their customers.
