How is Avanade as a company to work for? Culture? Compensation?

Avanade has great culture, but not great compensation. It is NOT Accenture culture, it’s much better.

Think mix of Microsoft culture and accenture culture. So, like, accenture but not as fun.

I’ve worked with a couple of Avanade consultants in my past jobs. Basically they are a variation of Accenture (since Avanade is the Microsoft partnership for MS product services / consulting). Pay is lower than Accenture, and the titles/levels are also deemed lower. Example a Avanade experienced Manager was deemed equal to an experienced SC or new Manager at Accenture. Even if moving to other consulting firms, they will deem the role levels one level lower to the same title at the bigger consulting company. BTW, I was mostly impressed with the Avanade resources, though they were heavily tech.

I have been in America for 8 years, but I am British and some things still escape me. I am on a case that collaborates with an India team. It really amuses me that my South Asian colleagues openly comment to each other and the Indian colleagues for being “FOBish” or how “curry” they are. To me it sounds and feels demeaning, but they tell me I need to give them space to exhibit their culture and it would be wrong of me to press my values (esp since I am British) over them. What should I do?

People from other firms throw mad shade at Accenture, sometimes quite warranted, but every firm (especially MBB) has been pushing hard to build up their IT services/tech consulting side for a while now. I guess clients can't just google their way through massive implementations the same way they can download fancy slides.
