    I have been working at Amdocs full-time

    Pros

    There is a lot of potential:
    - Amazing, sharp, clever people as far as the eye can see
    - There's a lot of very interesting work which needs to be done
    - Champaign is a great town to live and work in
    - Health benefits are great
    - Pay is on the lower end of competitive for the market overall, though mid-range of competitive for the area
    - There are a handful of groups doing some neat things
    - The customers of Amdocs are some of the best in the world to work with
    - Bonuses are great, or so I'm told

    Cons

    Amdocs is suffering from chronic mismanagement, and abuse of workers is rampant.
    - On-call schedules result in very frequent long (more than 50 hours) work weeks
    - Resistance to change is excessive and arbitrary, and nepotism abounds
    - Ratio of managers to workers is almost 1:2 (and actually is in some areas).
    - Applications in use are ancient and aging, corporate doesn't want to spend the money to fix the problem, so instead they hire people to perform data fixes 24/7 instead of actually fixing the bugs.
    - People in management reserve the right to demand your presence on a "bridge" at any hour of the day, regardless of your plans.
    - Those who are hired as programmers are often only used in a tier-3 support capacity.
    - All of the above problems lead to a stagnation in personal growth and skill-atrophy.
    - Management doesn't want to hear what you think or want, they only want you to do as you're told and pick up the phone when you are called.
    - Management always hearkens back to when things were much, much worse whenever a problem arises, and then uses that as a pretext to avoid solving the problem.
    - The company chases people away in droves and then chooses not to back-fill those positions. This makes fewer people do the same amount of work.
    - The company uses the word "professional" to mean "do what I say without question," and they do so repeatedly at all levels of management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your workers do not belong to you, and the more you remind people that they can leave and go work somewhere else if they don't like where they are the more likely they are to actually do so.

    Senior management may also want to stop extolling the virtues of hard work while bragging about the perks of their jobs, too.

    I worked at Amdocs full-time

    Pros

    things are done efficiently., collaborative atmosphere, nice place to responsibilities and ownership. Some of the people around are very smart.

    Cons

    too many managers, concerns are usually not addressed. meritorious and average performers are weighed same because work is average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    think of expanding so as to utilize excessive number of managers and leads in the middle management.
