    I have been working at Amdocs full-time

    Pros

    Can't even remember one good point.

    Cons

    - no innovation at all
    - same old software and business.
    - don't expect to get promoted if you are sincere and hardworking but not political
    - too much politics
    - all the great employees left

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - pay some attention to employee retention
    - pay the employees at par with the market.
    - explore new business domains.
    - improve employee morale.

    Pros

    Benefits: on par with most corporations. Healthcare is reasonably priced and plan selection is good.

    Cons

    1. Very poor HR policies. Amdocs has a policy that there must be poor ratings given to some percentage of the employee base deserved or not.
    2. When Amdocs bought the company I was working for the first thing they did was give senior management stay bonuses. Then everyone on the management team was demoted one level down.
    3. The first thing Amdocs said after the acquisition was 'These people make too much money can't wait till we can take care of that'.

    Pros

    Coworkers that are willing to work themselves to death to deliver, extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Decent salary and benefits

    Cons

    Helpful coworkers do not extend to management or HR. No work/life balance. No growth plans. yearly reviews turn into high school popularity contest if you're even lucky. Most times promotion will depend on your last name.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not going to even waste my time.

    Pros

    Pay is ok, Health benefits are good. Offices can be nice as fac staff there is trying to make improvements.

    Cons

    Projects with insane timelines to keep clients happy. Amdocs delivers alright, over the bodies of it's staff.

    You can move up if you are Israeli. Otherwise, just wait in the back of the bus, for a longtime. Promotions, bonus, raises, etc go to the Israeli first, and everyone else third no matter how good you are.

    The same goes for your role or job duties, you end up doing the crummy work while any good roles will be given to Israeli brought over either from within the company or a friend hired on from outside. The amount of protectionism is really sad.

    HR dept is a mess, every year the process is changed and you have little to know idea what you will be graded on. Management feedback is nonexistent and you are left guessing if you are doing a good job or not. Once you get your grade from the annual review, it is to late to do anything about it and you are stuck with it for the year as there is no grievance process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Values program was a nice idea but appears to be nothing more than lip-service now. Give the staff a grievance process and STOP agreeing to these project timelines just kiss the client's rear end

    Pros

    Good culture, Amdocs is topmost player in its domain. Workplace is very competitive and good people around.

    Cons

    You can not grow much here specially if you are not Jewish, there is big favor for Jewish folks even if they are not as good as other people. They get promoted quickly and most of the managers are Jewish.

    Amdocs concentrates only on telecom domain, so there are very few options outside Amdocs, some of the products and technology are only used in Amdocs so if you are stuck in those projects it will be very difficult to move out.

    Very long work hours and you would be give work in out of proportion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some diversity in upper management. Some linguistic/accent training for managers from Israel, its very hard at time to understand what they say :) in important meetings.

    Pros

    generous vacation allowance - better than most

    Cons

    - discourages independent thinking
    - process and hierarchy oriented
    - moves slowly

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    innovation, growth, breakthroughs don't happen when you limit or discourage any creative, out-of-the-box thinking, or feel threatened explaining your decisions and practices.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, ownership, view, breakfast

    Cons

    Working with Indians and Israelis at once can be tricky. Most of the folks lack any professionalism and civility. A lot of slackers. There are more people than work and people create non nonsensical work to fill time and justify position. Ex. In one team, there are 1 VP, 1 Director, 3 Managers, 4 leads, 1 developer, and 4 testers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    See who is actually getting the work done. Usually it's the one at the bottom. If you don't take care of the person doing the actual job within the timelines, you will never be able to retain good talent.

    I worked at Amdocs as a contractor

    Pros

    good pregressively thinking company...salaries are competitive.

    Cons

    too many family members hired just because they are family....even if they are not qualified to do the job. This practice creates an environment where others have to take up where that person falls short, but they get a paycheck just like everyone else.

    also too much dependence upon one client so layoffs are inevitable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    hire qualified candidates with the skills to get the job done.
