    Pros

    Depends on your project and manager. Very good and frequent onsite opportunities for some employees. The only benefit.

    Cons

    Depends on your project and manager. For some employees and teams no onsite. Amdocs has now started hiring employee with very less package. Also there is a lot of cost cutting going on these days. I would suggest try for some other companies first before coming here ;-)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should put employees under same manager where they work else there is a huge communication gap which happened exactly with me.

    Pros

    Good place to start from, if you lack experience. Excellent catering.

    Cons

    Too expensive car costs, low salaries, social terms keeps getting worse every year. The company simply tries to do whatever they can in order to increase the quarterly revenue, even if this means reducing bonuses, firing employees, reducing the yearly KM allowance and so on...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget that eventually a company is based on its employees. A satisfied employee is a productive employee.

    I have been working at Amdocs full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Start Pay is Average
    Benefits are Average
    Facility varies but generally actual company facilities are nice, well kept and coffee, tea, and various snacks are available regularly

    Cons

    Unofficial culture of we do not care how it gets done as long as it gets done which allows for incompetent and lazy workers to be carried by others.
    Bonuses and raises are not frequent and generally not much
    Promotions are even harder to come by and aren't always based on the best possible applicant, nepotism, nationalism and favoritism are rampant
    Work life balance in the project I work in is across the board unreasonable
    Upper management does not back their people and often makes decisions to their teams detriment they are apathetic and very quick to tell their people just how replaceable they are
    No friendliness towards coworkers no sense of community at all, often people will segregate themselves according to country/region of origin. People will not engage with you unless you are on their team or they wish to join your team.\\
    Evaluation system is an absolute Joke

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When new Understand the processes before making major changes to them as not doing so can have unintended consequences
    Appreciate a good employee and reward people based on merit
