    I worked at Amdocs full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Unfortunately I cannot think of any pros! It is sad but don’t get fulled to waste your time and talent with this company.

    Cons

    This is a company that has no work life balance, and zero compassion to their employees. My wasted few years I spent thinking that it will get better, but it never did...

    Advice to Management

    All they care is making their numbers!

    I have been working at Amdocs full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Fast paced, great opportunities to learn, casual dress code, flexible in-office vs at home working hours

    Cons

    No work-life balance, most manager jobs go to Israeli's or Indians, workforce is 40+, culture is very aggressive/threatening, company is not employee centric, very few locals are hired, constantly cutting training and travel opportunities, HR is VERY political and not employee focused, and people are not titled for the roles that they do

    Advice to Management

    Stop saying you are a young company or employee centric, without actually investing in it. Hire locals. Invest in training. Stop rewarding aggressive and bully managerial styles. Align role titles with the jobs that people do. Find a way to breakdown the sentiment that promotions are based on your nationality, and not your work efforts. Allow employees to feel this is actually a place they can grow.

    I have been working at Amdocs for more than a year

    Pros

    Good for beginners, with no family

    Cons

    Not for family orientated. No Work-Life balance. Lots of un-payed overtime.

    Advice to Management

    None, as it's too much budget orientated, and cant change where it counts.

    • Senior Management
    Current Employee - Business Operations PMO in Saint Louis, MO

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Amdocs full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule is about the only Pro I can think of.

    Cons

    No work life balance. If you enjoy sitting and working 12 hours a day, then you will enjoy this company. Management does not value knowledge, they are driving the work force to India. Yearly increases and bonus are about every 3rd year.

    Advice to Management

    Yearly increase and a bonus should go to everyone that contributes or no one, going to a selective few makes for an unhappy work culture. I wish management valued their US work force.

    I worked at Amdocs full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits - better than most.

    Cons

    Cultural cliques prevent true community feel. Use of stacked ranking for annual performance reviews forcing low performers who may not truly be. NO work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Take employee suggestions related to noted Cons seriously - dont be all talk and no do.
