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

    Pros

    Start Pay is Average
    Benefits are Average
    Facility varies but generally actual company facilities are nice, well kept and coffee, tea, and various snacks are available regularly

    Cons

    Unofficial culture of we do not care how it gets done as long as it gets done which allows for incompetent and lazy workers to be carried by others.
    Bonuses and raises are not frequent and generally not much
    Promotions are even harder to come by and aren't always based on the best possible applicant, nepotism, nationalism and favoritism are rampant
    Work life balance in the project I work in is across the board unreasonable
    Upper management does not back their people and often makes decisions to their teams detriment they are apathetic and very quick to tell their people just how replaceable they are
    No friendliness towards coworkers no sense of community at all, often people will segregate themselves according to country/region of origin. People will not engage with you unless you are on their team or they wish to join your team.\\
    Evaluation system is an absolute Joke

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When new Understand the processes before making major changes to them as not doing so can have unintended consequences
    Appreciate a good employee and reward people based on merit

    I worked at Amdocs

    Pros

    Variety of work. Challenged with assignments. Pay. Benefits. Coworkers. The company has a well thought out strategy. Great place to grow by leaps and bounds and receive opportunities to travel globally.

    Cons

    Long work hours. Self service HR. If you don't work at the corporate office in Israel it is hard to have visibility and to get ahead after a certain point. You are only as good as your last success. No loyalty to employees.
