    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

    Advice to Senior Managementquit outsourcing......ruining Americans lives

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not fun anymore.

    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
    - too much politics
    - all the great employees left

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Extremely long hours for the pay scale

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsLong term opportunity if you are a very hard worker and you have the flexibility to work from home when needed.

    ConsNo work-life balance if you want to keep your job. You have to work extremely long hours to be promoted and it still takes a while to see the promotion.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Can learn a lot of Skills, excellent ground for building technical skills

    Software Engineer (Current Employee)

    ProsExcellent to build skills on technical level, flexible hours. Great exposure to vast platforms.

    ConsForget about promotions, strictly based on your superiors vacating their posts, your professional growth depends on which Business unit or team your are in. The salaries are OK but not par if you are highly skilled

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Dismal place to work. Only work for them if there are no other options.

    Development Manager (Former Employee)
    Charlotte, NC

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

    Cons1. 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'.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
