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 Management

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.

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

    Pros

    Flexibility in work hours; able to telecommute; benefits are good; competitive salary; additional perks such as food rooms, benefits toward health programs such as weight watchers.

    Cons

    Alot of work which requires greater than a normal 9 hour workday on average; more than fair sick leave hours for employees/family, but would prefer if more of the time off was dedicated to vacation time since I do not really take sick days.

    Advice to Management

    Find an alternative to the current performance feedback system so that people who work hard feel their rating accurately reflects their performance.

    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 Management

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