I worked at Amdocs as a contractor

Pros

good pregressively thinking company...salaries are competitive.

Cons

too many family members hired just because they are family....even if they are not qualified to do the job. This practice creates an environment where others have to take up where that person falls short, but they get a paycheck just like everyone else.

also too much dependence upon one client so layoffs are inevitable.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

hire qualified candidates with the skills to get the job done.

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

    Pros

    Has policies very friendly to employees. Very good exposure large telecom and cable client services and working cultures. Has very talented technical employees.

    Cons

    Amdocs Champaign management are all internal employees promoted to management. BUT, None of them have any management or people skills, not even basic courtesy. Very high prevalence of Nepotism and back-stabbing politics. Their only offer of retaining departing employees - ' Do you have a spouse, we can offer them job here '

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve working environment by focusing on long-term development of employees. Trust your employees and delegate responsibility. Micromanagement and petty politics should be discouraged. Practice basic management skills - say at least 'Thank you' and 'Please'.

    I worked at Amdocs full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Engineering was a reasonably sane environment running Agile (Scrum); some engineering teams better than others. Most groups outside of Engineering were subject to chaos. Some interesting technical work and experience supporting products serving large mobile providers, with the cash cow being a single large mobile provider. Decent overal salary and benefits package, particularly with longer tenure.

    Cons

    Culturally difficult environment to work in. Many times, treat employees like cogs on a wheel and drive them into the ground with a lot of hours. Being an Israeli-based company, after acquisition of Qpass, a large amount of Israeli-expats were shipped to Seattle to do things in the "Amdocs way". This killed a lot of the Seattle tech culture that remained form the startup days of Qpass, and was replaced by a massive amounts of politics, short-sighted vision, and a buddy-buddy Israeli decision making group. Company leaned too far solely supporting select large mobile providers for first generation digital content, with really the bulk of revenue coming from a single provider. Lacked strategic vision/investment to be ahead of the curve and diversify their customer base in the digital commerce space.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decide if you want to be a leader in the mobile space. If so, find the right visionaries with market competency, invest appropriately, and rally the troops.
