Possibly the worst employer on earth

Senior Subject Matter Expert (Former Employee)
Atlanta, GA (US)

I worked at Amdocs full-time for more than 5 years

ProsBenefits are competitive. There are no other advantages to working at Amdocs. Unless you are a masochist, then opportunity abounds.

ConsIn 40 years I have never worked for a person less qualified to be a manager as my last Amdocs manager. On the rare occasion that he actually showed up to work, he was completely incompetent and showed no people skills out of 5 managers I'm 7 years, I had one good manager. If you are not Israeli, or willing to work for a fraction of what the market dictates, you will not be promoted. Management seems proud that there is no work life balance.

Advice to Senior ManagementBlow it up and return the money to shareholders.

Avoid Like the Plague

Senior Subject Matter Expert (Current Employee)
London, England (UK)

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

ProsI honestly cant think of any

ConsCompany has a hard working culture just don't expect overtime or standby payments for all your hard work. The yearly bonus is derisory and apparently arbitrarily allotted.
You won't get any thanks, or training, or career progression or indeed any interest in your well being; work/life balance is non existent.
Management style is, stereotypically, about what you'd expect for an Israeli company and largely involves being shouted at.
Staff scuttlebutt has is that you need to be Jewish to get on at Amdocs; sadly this really does appear to be true.
You'll be working on an outdated, proprietary software stack so even if you can convince someone to teach it too you (harder than it sounds), then it's absolutely no use anywhere but Amdocs.
Based on previous examples redundancy is going to be statutory minimum so it's not worth waiting for that either.
I'd have rated them lower than 1 if this site allowed.

Advice to Senior ManagementPerhaps try treating the goy as human beings?

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Good company. Work life balance is an issue

Group Leader (Current Employee)
Pune (India)

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

ProsWork environmentnis good.
Food is very good
No dress code
Free breakfast and evening snacks are provided
Good transport facility

ConsWork life balance is an issue for experienced developers.
Work on Amdocs Product, which are good, but not on latest technologies
Estimations are not provided properly, specially duration
Quality is affected due to this

Advice to Senior ManagementMy only concern is work life balance, which needs to be improved by providing correct estimations and duration.

SME, Developer, SW Engineer

Software Developer/Engineer (Current Employee)

I have been working at Amdocs full-time for more than 8 years

ProsOpportunities to relocate, the compensation package is not too bad. Developing large scale SW products for top telecom providers.

ConsVery stiff and bureaucratic vertical structure of management, the waterfall methodology. The "Focal points"\Group Leaders structure in teams instead of scrum. Old development technologies and low level of skills in average.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe change of the managing strategy toward implementing agile and scrum methodologies will increase an overall efficiency of teams and will reduce the unnecessary "overmanagment". More focus on real employee's skills is required.

amdocs is not for technically sound employees

SSME (Current Employee)
Pune (India)

I have been working at Amdocs full-time for more than a year

ProsNice HR policies, good benefits, average salary,

ConsLeads and Managers(~80%) doesn't have any technical or leadership skills which impacts genuine performance reviews. In other words, if u r good in buttering and making good PRs with Leads & Managers then you r eligible for good bonus or hike and if you focused on pure working and learning then u r wasting ur time and Money.
