Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Great technical team supporting the client, but with a price.

Cons

Poor environment for selling success. More proposal loss, than winning! Pricing is is risk stacked beyond reasonabililty.
A desire to operate under Accenture only, and NOT practically competitive as an open market consultancy throughout the US.
Project or Program delivery (DIRECT) is weak and risky to the client.

Advice to Management

None.

    I have been working at Avanade full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great pitch for those wanting to develop a rewarding and gainful career in technology on the Microsoft platform

    Cons

    - Client selectivity is poor, likely due to rate levels and pressure to deliver results
    - Project work can be non-gainful and almost embarrassing to work on
    - Most corporate communication is content-free, almost to an intelligence-insulting degree
    - Unclear if Sr. Leadership has any real autonomy outside of Accenture

    Advice to Management

    Need to be a little more square with your employees regarding your business model. If you feel to cannot do that--that alone probably should tell you something.
