    I worked at Amdocs full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Amdocs is a big product company. So if you are at right location you
    - may get good technical work to work on
    - market competitive salary
    - depending on project/location - work culture varies. Generally good.
    - domain knowledge is valuable if you get to work on full portfolio for telecom solutions

    Cons

    - bad work culture if you are on a production support site
    - may not get much technical knowledge
    - company will try to extract most out of you.

    Pros

    It's a company that will not be dull for a single day. It takes a strong person to work and find balance. It's a growing company with a deep well of opportunities to learn and grow.

    Cons

    it is hard for many people to find the balance between work and personal life. many people have not yet learned to work across different continents and find the best way to deal with stress. but once you learn to work in Amdocs and manage stress, nothing is too hard in life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    hire more people

    Pros

    Amdocs is a good company that gives to your employees very good conditions of work.
    They have good training materials and big knowledge database.
    Also, as it's a big company, you have an open channel to speak with other coworkers from other countries.

    Cons

    You basically have no career opportunities. You just need to work 3~5 years to get promoted.
    As you grow in the company you do not receive money for extra worked hours. They make it clear on your contract.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe create a new career opportunity program.

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

    Pros

    Fantastic experience, learning opportunities. I have always been challenged and had opportunity to expand my knowledge and skills. Company is well run from a financial perspective. Very stable. Multi-cultural, international company which gives you an opportunity to work with a wide range of people with varied backgrounds.

    Cons

    Benefits have been scaled back, force you to cover some costs that in other companies are paid for like part of home office internet and home office phone expenses. Conservative travel policies can make travel much harder than it needs to be. Plenty of bureaucracy to work through if you are doing anything outside the norm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in the people, make it easier to innovate and improve current practices.

    Pros

    - Nice people
    - Good internal opportunities
    - Cultural diversity
    - Work life balance is decent, although could be improved further.
    - Good benefits

    Cons

    - Innovation is not one of the strong points.
    - Time taken for executing ideas is very long, which can be counter productive in times of cloud services and anywhere access.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - In solving engineering problems, management should try to look for solutions other than putting increased resources behind problems.
