    I worked at Amdocs full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Truly an international organisation with design in Israel, development and testing in India and client sites across the world.
    - Great place to learn about telecommunications industry and leading products used by the heavy weights in the industry
    - Great peers

    Cons

    - Low pay and long hours
    - Training was limited unless you were lucky and the client wanted someone with a specific skillset and no one was around and you happened to put your hand up to do it.
    - Dismal bonuses

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you see an attrition rate so high, you should take note and wonder why...

    Pros

    Free snacks, subsidized lunch coupons

    Cons

    -No good work. You need to be very lucky to be in a good development project. Most other projects are support/maintenance only.

    -No job security at all. I know a dozen people who got fired from Amdocs. Most pf them for no good reason. One person familiar to me was let go as soon as he got married. Poor guy was devastated.

    -No skill development during my 2 yrs of tenure here. Certainly not a place for technology enthusiast.

    -So much office politics. You need to be manager's special to get hike/growth/travel etc.

    I worked at Amdocs

    Pros

    Nothing Pro in Amdocs but free fruits once in a week, usually in Friday. Good for one who likes politics rather than performing job.

    Cons

    Guessable : never ending problems, restart apps is long term solution, long delivery of patch, always ask for money with CR. It's like Indian family only company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be less in playing politics, less talking and do more job than just talkactive.

    Pros

    If you want to become a zombie or slave, you are most welcome to work here!

    Cons

    Very poor management, ping-pong-ing issues and get used to only blame its workers for whatever reason, no matter how ridiculous it can be. For them, top management always right! No long term clear action to achieve a target, messy timeline for projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being arrogant and ignorant. Go down to the operation level and see for yourself what is happening, not depends solely on reports and statistics. Numbers always do not reflects actual situation.

    Pros

    The company have really great culture to work in. They take care of your basic needs in office.

    Cons

    Manager are still in mode of being a developer . Due to which they end up performing technical stuff and lose on managing people and their expectation.
    Ultimately resulting poor performance by people.
    This is is no more a product base company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need need managers not micro managers.

    I worked at Amdocs as a contractor

    Pros

    The work is high-tech and fascinating. Some great colleagues too. Fascinating locations worldwide.

    I found the management arrogant and aloof. This resulted in a poor relationship with the customer as well as with suppliers.

    Bring in managers who show respect to people.

    Pros

    onsite on the cost of technical expertise

    Cons

    bad bad management, worst culture, worst managers, worst HR, politics everywhere, lack of knowledgeable people, no learning, zero technical expertise, good performance is never appreciated, low salaries, worse industry hikes, buttering is the only criteria for anything good that will happen to you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    remove old managers who gives no good input, take high salary and do politics.
    follow policies and not politics.

    Pros

    The only thing going for this place is the salary. They pay high salary for the area, which traps you if you live accordingly.

    Cons

    Office politics run rampant, even to the detriment of the product they put out. Programming is shoddy, with clients having to be repaid thousands and thousands of dollars due to poor implementation, and then patches are applied that end up breaking other things. More work is piled on, and they do not hire appropriately. They have cycles where they have to let people go, and artificially select candidates to place at the bottom of the bell curve to get rid of, then five months later realize they need to replenish because they THINK they have a new client coming on. BEWARE - they will hire you then the contract will fall through because the account execs are IDIOTS - and they will just tell you to leave with no feelings. Corporate used to send out employee satisfaction surveys, and they were so bad that have meetings were started on how to approve morale, then they decided it was just easier to get rid of the people who complained the loudest. Upper management is incompetent, and tries to micro-manage because they think the problem is the people, when in fact the process structure in Champaign stinks. People are given work with little preparation, and as for training - you better be prepared to learn it yourself somehow, because there is none. I blame corporate centers in Israel and St. Louis for looking with a blind eye toward a group of overall miserable people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop letting people from India take all the leadership positions. They have no idea how to relate to White Americans, and have no management nor people skills. As to the senior management team, they all need to be replaced. Most rose to the level of their incompetence, as the old adage goes.
