    Pros

    Free snacks, subsidized lunch coupons

    Cons

    -No good work. You need to be very lucky to be in a good development project. Most other projects are support/maintenance only.

    -No job security at all. I know a dozen people who got fired from Amdocs. Most pf them for no good reason. One person familiar to me was let go as soon as he got married. Poor guy was devastated.

    -No skill development during my 2 yrs of tenure here. Certainly not a place for technology enthusiast.

    -So much office politics. You need to be manager's special to get hike/growth/travel etc.

    Pros

    If you want to become a zombie or slave, you are most welcome to work here!

    Cons

    Very poor management, ping-pong-ing issues and get used to only blame its workers for whatever reason, no matter how ridiculous it can be. For them, top management always right! No long term clear action to achieve a target, messy timeline for projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being arrogant and ignorant. Go down to the operation level and see for yourself what is happening, not depends solely on reports and statistics. Numbers always do not reflects actual situation.

    Pros

    - Truly an international organisation with design in Israel, development and testing in India and client sites across the world.
    - Great place to learn about telecommunications industry and leading products used by the heavy weights in the industry
    - Great peers

    Cons

    - Low pay and long hours
    - Training was limited unless you were lucky and the client wanted someone with a specific skillset and no one was around and you happened to put your hand up to do it.
    - Dismal bonuses

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you see an attrition rate so high, you should take note and wonder why...

    Pros

    The company have really great culture to work in. They take care of your basic needs in office.

    Cons

    Manager are still in mode of being a developer . Due to which they end up performing technical stuff and lose on managing people and their expectation.
    Ultimately resulting poor performance by people.
    This is is no more a product base company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need need managers not micro managers.

    I worked at Amdocs as a contractor

    Pros

    The work is high-tech and fascinating. Some great colleagues too. Fascinating locations worldwide.

    Cons

    I found the management arrogant and aloof. This resulted in a poor relationship with the customer as well as with suppliers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in managers who show respect to people.

    Pros

    onsite on the cost of technical expertise

    Cons

    bad bad management, worst culture, worst managers, worst HR, politics everywhere, lack of knowledgeable people, no learning, zero technical expertise, good performance is never appreciated, low salaries, worse industry hikes, buttering is the only criteria for anything good that will happen to you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    remove old managers who gives no good input, take high salary and do politics.
    follow policies and not politics.

    Pros

    Flexible timings,WFH facilities,Free Snacks,Nice office decoration,Friendly team members

    Cons

    Heavy politics. If you dont have a project you are gone.No bench to accommodate resources till a new project comes.No process in anything be it technical or managerial processes.Manager's ratings are final,no facility to raise your concerns against ratings.A totally hypocrite company wherein they will do 1000 rounds of skip leveels,1-o-1 blabla but would never act on the concerns made.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the situation else you will be short of talents very soon.

    I have been working at Amdocs full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    1) Recognition and financial rewards in projects are exciting (if you manage to get them in a large team).

    I am not able to see much Pros after experiencing work at other companies.

    Cons

    Overall very less respect for developers.

    1) Very less industry standard technical exposure.
    2) 0% respect for work life balance. If you don't work for stretched hours then you might get poor rating in evaluation.
    3) Very less flexibility in switching technologies. All depends on luck when you were first allocated the project.
    4) Continuity of job is very uncertain. I have seen many intelligent people were given poor rating and were asked to leave (victims of office politics). Now they are in superb companies like Amazon, Walmart, Redbus, etc
     5) Onsite opportunity is history now. There are sites but travel department is not friendly. People deny going abroad these days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read the cons and try to improve it (although i have very less faith :) )
