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

Has anyone negotiated their raise at comp conversations in the past? I got very high ratings but I'm a staff so I know we basically all get the same raise. Is negotiating even an option for me?

Question: What incentive do consultants have to work more efficiently than coworkers since billing is done hourly, not by deliverable? A relevant hypothetical: 1. Consultant A can get task X done in 2 hours. 2. Consultant B can get task X done in 8 hours. 3. Let both A & B work an 8 hour work day. 4. In 8 hours, A can complete task X four times while B completes task X once. 5. Since consulting is billed hourly, both consultants get the same utilization and billable hours from the client.

If given the chance, what would be your reasons for switching to another big 4 or to MBB? (Especially taking into account the network/brand you've built already)
