Very ineffective and dysfunctional organization
The lack of leadership and infighting is unbelievable. Extremely poorly run business. Very heavy on bureaucracy, procedures and approvals... nothing happens expeditiously. Lots of backstabbing and disloyalty.
Pros
None
Cons
No leadership

Don't do it, it's not worth!
Honestly this company is a joke. The interview is easy, and they will probably offer anyone a job, but that's because they will let you go in a minute. So, if you have a full-time permanent job, please do not leave it for this company. All their job is project based, and they rarely have enough project, so they are constantly hiring and letting people go, like it means nothing to them. And yes, they will lie to you and say, if there's no project you can "go on the bench and learn" that's BS, once you go on the bench, you are as good as out the door. And even if you do get another project, you must interview for the project with every other person on the bench, these projects have no clear guideline on its requirements. So, most of the time, projects are not assigned based on skills, but based on friendship. Their management clearly have no clue what they are doing and constantly mismanaged their budget. If you want a job that offers zero job security and where you will constantly be interviewing for your position, then be my guest. Trying to save you a lot of time and grief. I can't believe I left a very good secured job for this joke of a company. Lesson well learnt.

Lots of unpaid overtime
Lots of talent here. generally good people and a wonderfully multicultured work environment.

Be prepared to work a lot of unpaid hours in poor physical work conditions and spend your spare time studying. If you want anything resembling work-life balance, this is not a good place to work.

As a consultant you will be struggling with unrealistic expectations set by the sales people. This company cares about one thing only, the bottom line!

Mediocre Company
Didn't work here for long, but the company is very mediocre and lives in the shadows of Accenture. Struggles to get and keep contracts and can potentially over work.

Delivery oriented vs sales oriented culture
Strong Microsoft partner with a good track record of successful implementations. Good delivery resources. Executive team is not diverse and not open to new processes or sales methodology changes.
Pros
great delivery team
Cons
not a strong organization for the promotion of diversity

Good Work Life Balance. Pays Well. Not enough projects
Good Work life balance. Pays well. Not enough projects. Typical Consulting environment. Little experience people act as if they are experts without any practical experience. Tied to Accenture. Bad resource utilization. Although very accommodating.

cool place to work
I enjoyed my time at Avanade and got great exposure to a lot of very smart and dynamic leaders. It's definitely a fast paced work environment so not for everyone.

IT Consulting
Great workplace and healthy team . IT Consulting joint venture between Accenture and Microsoft. Multicultural environment and learning opportunities on latest technology is an asset.

Doesn't understand Mobility but best Microsoft partner out there
Some of the smartest people I've worked with in IT, but the culture is pretty toxic and the sales teams churn a lot. With a little more flexibility and a culture shift, the business could transform

Good place to work with flexible hours
The leading provider of innovative digital services, business solutions, and design-led experiences, delivered through the power of people and the Microsoft ecosystem. Good place to work with flexible hours. Decent amount of red tape and politics, but this is expected of a big company.

Great culture and employee recognition
Avanade is a great company. Due to lower forecasted sales vs. budget, there has been some downsizing. Other than that, I would recommend this company.

A customer focused and consulting company
Avanade offers rich cultural and high-tech environment. It stood one step ahead of other organizations in terms of technology and number of overall certifications. It is purely a customer focused compnay. During my tenure in Avanade I gained MCSD certification as well as consulting skills.
