Approves of CEO

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

Pros

They offered a lengthy transition program for new college grads of about 5 weeks.

Cons

Not a lot of say on client that you will be assigned to

Advice to Management

Ultimately, I was part of layoffs during economic down turn, unfortunately I didn't see it coming at all. Maybe a little better communication of hard times. Instead, they had us come in for a week of training and then on Friday laid off a lot of us.

    Pros

    Great Training. The culture is supportive and encourages helping other people and teamwork. Very easy to approach your boss and discuss things.

    Cons

    You can get placed on really bad projects or no projects at all and you're just left all alone not really building any skills. The salary is lower than similar places.

    Advice to Management

    Try and help people on the bench and help them do things for the company. Otherwise they will leave.

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

    Pros

    Avanade has some cool solutions built upon Microsoft's platform. The pay is good based on the level. Some smart people that direct delivery and sales.

    Cons

    Whipping boys to Accenture. Don't show that much respect to the Microsoft partnership. Big egos are bruised easily, and a lot of back-stabbing (make yourself look good by making others look bad). The work/life balance is not balanced - the time commitment expectations are unreal.

    Advice to Management

    Great technologists don't make great managers - there is some serious lack of people skills at the management levels.
