    SME, Developer, SW Engineer

    Software Developer/Engineer (Current Employee)

    ProsOpportunities to relocate, the compensation package is not too bad. Developing large scale SW products for top telecom providers.

    ConsVery stiff and bureaucratic vertical structure of management, the waterfall methodology. The "Focal points"\Group Leaders structure in teams instead of scrum. Old development technologies and low level of skills in average.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe change of the managing strategy toward implementing agile and scrum methodologies will increase an overall efficiency of teams and will reduce the unnecessary "overmanagment". More focus on real employee's skills is required.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    ProsBig Transformation Projects are Delivered providing value to the customers. This ensures a win win for both Amdocs and Customers

    ConsMany times the project are over committed and it affects the life balance. Lack of recognition of pure technical positions.

    Reduced workforce, increased hours

    Senior Programmer/Analyst (Former Employee)
    Saint Louis, MO

    ProsThere are no pros that I can think of.

    ConsAT&T turned over our jobs to Amdocs. After the first year, layoffs began. Every few months, there were more layoffs. In order to get everything done, mandatory overtime was imposed. Later, mandatory overtime was increased. Finally, a certain benefit promised to all newly acquired Amdocs employees was completely taken away. It was a very difficult time for all of us involved.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI don't believe management would listen to any advice whatsoever.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Possibly the worst employer on earth

    Senior Subject Matter Expert (Former Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsBenefits are competitive. There are no other advantages to working at Amdocs. Unless you are a masochist, then opportunity abounds.

    ConsIn 40 years I have never worked for a person less qualified to be a manager as my last Amdocs manager. On the rare occasion that he actually showed up to work, he was completely incompetent and showed no people skills out of 5 managers I'm 7 years, I had one good manager. If you are not Israeli, or willing to work for a fraction of what the market dictates, you will not be promoted. Management seems proud that there is no work life balance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBlow it up and return the money to shareholders.

    – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
