    Pros

    Large well known company. Lots of company training opportunities. The health benefits are stellar. Company is profitable and stable.

    Cons

    People have drastically different views of what it is like to work at Amdocs, all depending on the group and manager you are hired under. As a potentially employee I suggest that you vet out your hiring manager, as your manager will make the difference.

    Advice to Management

    Do more to promote from within. With 17,000+ employees you should be able to find internal employees that can be groomed for senior roles.

    Pros

    work-life balance is great.
    can work from home.
    compensation is good.

    Cons

    there are cuts every year so every year i'm afraid of losing my job.
    management are all yes men - they don't challenge leadership at all and in turn policy changes are put in place that hinder rather than help.
    no room for growth

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to be more in-tune with what's really going on. Policies and changes they put in place they try to make one size fits all and it doesn't.

    Pros

    There are no pros that I can think of.

    Cons

    AT&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 Management

    I don't believe management would listen to any advice whatsoever.
