    Don't walk, run away from this place.

    Storage-software Development Expert (Former Employee) Champaign, IL

    ProsThe only thing going for this place is the salary. They pay high salary for the area, which traps you if you live accordingly.

    ConsOffice politics run rampant, even to the detriment of the product they put out. Programming is shoddy, with clients having to be repaid thousands and thousands of dollars due to poor implementation, and then patches are applied that end up breaking other things. More work is piled on, and they do not hire appropriately. They have cycles where they have to let people go, and artificially select candidates to place at the bottom of the bell curve to get rid of, then five months later realize they need to replenish because they THINK they have a new client coming on. BEWARE - they will hire you then the contract will fall through because the account execs are IDIOTS - and they will just tell you to leave with no feelings. Corporate used to send out employee satisfaction surveys, and they were so bad that have meetings were started on how to approve morale, then they decided it was just easier to get rid of the people who complained the loudest. Upper management is incompetent, and tries to micro-manage because they think the problem is the people, when in fact the process structure in Champaign stinks. People are given work with little preparation, and as for training - you better be prepared to learn it yourself somehow, because there is none. I blame corporate centers in Israel and St. Louis for looking with a blind eye toward a group of overall miserable people.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop letting people from India take all the leadership positions. They have no idea how to relate to White Americans, and have no management nor people skills. As to the senior management team, they all need to be replaced. Most rose to the level of their incompetence, as the old adage goes.

    What a Joke

    IT Software Engineer (Former Employee) Omaha, NE

    ProsIf you're an American, you're good for maybe 3 months, then they move your job to India or Israel. This company got the IT contract of my past employer a couple of years ago and promised job safety. Instead, I got stuck training someone in Pumba, India in middle of the night for 6 weeks (didn't speak English). This company is a typical example of how our country is going downhill bigtime. I had a safe job with a telecommunications co. for years only to lose it to overseas. Unreal....

    Conssee above if you are even worried about where this country is going

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsCan'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

    - explore new business domains.
    - improve employee morale.

    What doesn't break you will make you stronger

    Project Manager (Current Employee) Champaign, IL

    ProsIt'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.

    Consit 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.
