    I worked at Amdocs full-time (more than a 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...

    I have been working at Amdocs

    Pros

    Global influencer of most Telcom, satellite and cable providers through good OSS / BSS and integrated technologies. Opportunity to travel and work with great customers on innovative platforms and transformations.

    Cons

    Nepotism at its worst. Stagnant regional pillars of staunch 'lifers' who have little regard for customers - and even less for the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't think they'd listen anyway...

    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You cant wake up someone who is pretending to sleep.

    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.

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

    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

    I worked at Amdocs as a contractor

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in managers who show respect to people.
