    Pros

    Stable for most projects,
    Benefits are Ok,
    Room for some growth

    Cons

    Bureaucracy,
    Prepare to fight for promotions with kiss-ups,
    Like in any big company, depends on the manager - many would take care of themselves only

    Pros

    Great experience in a fast-paced environment with a complex mix of technologies and processes, working in teams distributed across the globe. Pretty laid back work environment.

    Cons

    I've found the pay a bit on the low side and I while I don't mind longer hours--within reason--I do resent often not knowing when I will be able to leave the office. Also, I really feel like too little attention is paid to training and knowledge management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a culture that values knowledge management

    Pros

    Takes good care of it's employees during difficult business situations. For those with a travelling mindset, can be a haven if you land up in the right account.

    Cons

    Being a Israeli company, after a certain senior level, promotions are hard to come by. Also being a product company makes you feel that your growth, coupled with the previous Con, is getting limited after a while.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't just blindly follow methods & procedures, you can and will loose talented employees that way. You already have btw!

    Please promote and hire people based only on professional merit and not on the basis of their extra-curricular activities or any activity unrelated to work.

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

    Pros

    Flexibility in work hours; able to telecommute; benefits are good; competitive salary; additional perks such as food rooms, benefits toward health programs such as weight watchers.

    Cons

    Alot of work which requires greater than a normal 9 hour workday on average; more than fair sick leave hours for employees/family, but would prefer if more of the time off was dedicated to vacation time since I do not really take sick days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find an alternative to the current performance feedback system so that people who work hard feel their rating accurately reflects their performance.
