Demanding Work ethic
Director/ Functional Architect (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILNovember 16, 2016
The Accenture Culture is clearly deploring Avanade from what it once was... not that the people are bad... it is just the work ethic and bureaucracy is killing it..
Pros
good people, Life style bonus
Cons
Long Hours, un-able to achieve goals

Productive workplace where people are valued
Manager, Data Engineering - Data & Analytics (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAOctober 4, 2016
Avanade is a very busy place, but they will give you plenty of opportunity to learn and apply new skills with customer engagements. Management does need to work on how they operate the business but they are very good at hiring good people.

Hardest part of the role was simply the unstable nature of continuous work. It's too risky to rely on a stable income or in building a long term career.

But you will enjoy it if you need to bolster your skills.
Pros
Great culture and awesome coworkers
Cons
Lack of managerial control and predictability in the Sales channel.

Somewhat productive environment. Competitive environment is beginning.
Sr. Consultant / Technical Lead (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCSeptember 12, 2016
A very good place to work. It is beginning to become a competitive environment in that peers will compete with each other due to stack rankings. this will all but eliminate collaboration among engineers as well as the sharing of knowledge.
Pros
Extended Benefits yearly to buy electronics.

Overall great place to work
Manager, Delivery Management (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXJuly 26, 2016
The best thing about Avanade is the training and development. You are exposed to premier training in your industry and at lower levels you are even paid to learn. As you move up, you are expected to continue training without being paid on an hourly basis but if you view this as the company investing in you it is still a tremendous benefit.

No place for women in technology
Analyst (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WAJune 15, 2016
Terrible pay, management is always coming up with some new scheme that doesn't last, and female employees in technical roles are constantly passed over. I took a job here because Avanade is alway touting diversity, but my group of nearly 100 was 95% white men. And it was clear that they wanted it to stay that way.
Pros
free soda\no "take home" work
Cons
exclusionary, pay not competitive, disorganized

Would not recommend to work here
Business Operations Manager (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAApril 18, 2016
The culture at Avanade has really declined over the last few years. If you want to be a no name employee in a big company with limited career advancement, Avanade would be a good option for you. You can work here and coast, but hopefully there will not be yet another re-org where your job is phased out.
Pros
Decent benefits.
Cons
Employees are not valued.

Emphasis on building skill sets and certification
Group Manager, Contact Center, CRM (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 30, 2016
Avanade puts a great deal of emphasis on skills training, Especially not assigned to a deployment project. The company prides itself on the number of Microsoft certifications their teams and team members bring to the table. Outside of Microsoft, they lead the industry. Typical work day is all about winning the deal or getting the job done. Teams work well together. I walked away with a better understanding of delivery management and the ability to more effectively use KPIs to proactively and preemptively address project issues. The hardest part of the job is getting staffed as a higher level manger. The sales cycle is too long to survive without being staffed on a current project. The best part of the job is being on a team, either pre-sales or delivery. When the sale is closed or the delivery is complete, everyone walks away a better professional.
Pros
Availability of educational resources, extended benefits, culture of collaberation
Cons
As a manager, getting staffed on projects is difficult.

Nice place to work
Tech Innovations Advisor / Solution Executive (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXJanuary 19, 2016
Avanade was a fun and interesting place to work. The partnership and name recognition opened doors that might have otherwise been difficult to open. People were great, management was good, and the value prop for the service was apparent.
