Pros

Learn about the telecom industry. Gain experience working with people from many different regions and countries. Take advantage of training opportunities provided by Amdocs.

Cons

Layoffs are rampant. Amdocs business model is to squeeze every last billable hour out of their employees. North American IT employees are hired to produce the architecture and then laid off and replaced by low-cost Indian outsource contracts.

Advice to Management

Do the right thing and give employees 60 days notice under the WARN act instead of 2 weeks. Sr. Management is proud of the fact they are not in debt and have millions of cash in the bank, yet they will not support their laid off workers in rough economic times.

    Pros

    Amdocs Consuling Division was setup to be a competitor for Accenture, however the structure of the company did not allow it to fully compete. It is still a growing organization with opportunity to help grow the new business. Though in these economic times, its hard to gain momentum in selling big projects. The current big telco clients are also tightening their belts, so the ACD division has been hit harder than the CBU. The company had alot of potential, but it will take the senior management to steer the organization in the right direction where it is independent from the corporate big brother.

    Cons

    ACD partners with Amdocs Corporate development teams. Depending on who won the project, the project is either owned by the consulting division or by corporate business unit. This can lead to alot of internal power struggles, in addition, ACD employees are treated as staff augs rather than true consultants.

    Advice to Management

    Clarify your business structure, and set ACD apart from the CBU.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Potential for promotions if you work 24x7 and keep quite about the wrongdoing of your immediate supervisors. Gain strong project management skills and corporate survival skills. Learn telecommunications.

    Cons

    Treating employees like commodities. Company being run by accountants that have a zero value next to the employee moral. Expected to work 24x7 without reasonable compensation. Political alignment with the current superstar is a must - loyalty needs to be to individuals rather than to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Convert the current direct supervisor loyalty mentality to a corporate loyalty by reducing the power of the temporary superstars. Used to be a much better work place and can still get back to be that place if the spirit of the past or maybe even some of the old executives will be brought back. Stop thinking that the customers do not understand that you lost your morals.
