    Ok company, not enough technology use in new dev tools and processes

    Management Level (Former Employee) Mount Laurel, NJ

    ProsCompetitive telecom field, ok benefits

    ConsUsually a lot of long hours. Not enough flexibility for remote work. Can be a lot if politics among various groups. Not always marching along with new dev tools and practices so may not gain right experience.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLess politics. Allow people more work hours flexibility.

    crazy busy but happy working

    Business Analyst (Current Employee) Mount Laurel, NJ

    ProsWith so many projects/releases/customers in parallel, and now the #1 converged BSS provider, you will feel proud of it.

    ConsWhile we are crazy busy, the financial result is still bad and no increase for years.

    ok place if you are not care too much about money and long work hour

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Mount Laurel, NJ

    ProsA place where you can advance the ladder if you work really really hard and be smart; There's no glass ceiling for foreigners (in fact, most of the management are non-American). Good place to apply for H1B and Green Card.

    ConsLow compensation. Long hour. Complicate politics and very bad culture.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInnovation is a culture, not a slogan. So you have to make your employee 'feel' good before you can pick their best idea in their mind.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Where every employee is actively looking for a new job

    NONE (Current Employee) Mount Laurel, NJ

    ProsIf you enjoy international travel, Comverse has a number of positions that require frequent client on-site meetings. There aren't really any other positives.

    ConsSalaries are across the board for positions of equal responsibility, which easily becomes common knowledge via the gossip engine. Raises and bonuses are nonexistent, except for the chosen few. Middle management is chock full of people who don't apparently do anything aside from writing emails, especially in the Tel Aviv office. For example, a deployment project kickoff meeting can be attended by some twenty 'project managers', half of whom are never seen again. The other half remain, with one or two actual engineers doing the work. Politics are a heavy driver throughout the company. The saying "what color is your passport" is quite relevant whenever the inevitable round of layoffs ensues.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBased on your salary and perks, you shouldn't need advice. That's why you are paid as you are, right?

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
