I have been working at Amdocs full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Was once a decent company to work for that gave something to its customers and nested in its employees growth and well being. If you're lucky you'll have some decent colleagues to share your frustrations at the top heavy, thick headed management structures , stifling bureaucracy and completely insane lack of budget to really enable you do you work well.

Cons

Employees are like furniture or equipment. Use them without consideration for their humanity and then throws them away when they break. Talks big about values and employee care but doesn't stand behind that. Run by a bunch of cronies who look out for each other and screw the rest of you,,,

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Put money towards things that matter, ie people... you have to spend some money to earn some more. Cutting and cutting to keep showing a profit every quarter will eventually leave you with nothing and no way to earn anything anymore,,, stop rushing towards the cliff of unsustainable constant budget cuts and invest in growth.

    Pros

    Salaries are good compared to similar companies

    Cons

    You are expected to work 60-70 hours per week at a minimum. Work-life balance does not exist. HR department is the worst in the industry - most of them are arrogant, condescending, enjoy gossiping about their people's issues with others, and feel they have much better things to do than listen to you and -god forbid- try to help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Outsource the HR department, or kick them all out and replace them with true professionals (demand that HR managers will get certified in their field)

    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.

    Negative Outlook
