Is Avanade a good firm? Mini Accenture? Competitor of Tata and Cognizant?

If you want to go deep in Microsoft delivery, Avanade might be for you. If you want to do literally anything else, stay away.

Avanade is a joint venture of Accenture and Microsoft. It operates more like Accenture Technology than Consulting or Operations. I don't believe Tata or Cognizant are in that same space, but I might be wrong.

Avanade does higher value consulting than Tata or Cognizant - their engagement models are significantly different

I wouldn’t call Avanade high value anything, though it’s a great way to break into Microsoft and get a nice pay raise in the process

Does anyone know about Avanade's non-compete agreements? What if you take a role with them but then you want to jump to Microsoft? What levels have non-competes and is there any way around them?

Every offer has a non-compete, but that's typically only enforced while working. I know people that jumped tonthe client, to MS, and to Accenture.

C1: higher value than TCS and Cognizant, which are about as low value as they come
