A company that offers 2 weeks holiday to every hire regardless of experience.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Ottawa, ON

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

ProsThe compensation and bonus plan are well funded, and employees are taken care of well on a daily basis with a refreshment program that provides food and beverages. Contribution matching on RRSPs is a good thing, and also well funded.

Because other provinces have more holidays given for various observances in Ontario we get two floater holidays.

ConsSince we were purchased by Amdocs our benefits plan is terrible, and we don't even have an option to top it up. There is no employee stock purchase plan.

The company offers any new employee, even for filling senior positions, two weeks holidays, this is just absurd and means that new employees are often of very low calibre.

Advice to Senior ManagementOffer more than 2 weeks and you may attract better talent, cut the red tape and bureaucracy, for such a far reaching company with so many physical sites there needs to be a much more decentralized set of processes.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Miss the place , but not the work....

Senior Subject Matter Expert (Former Employee)
Montreal, QC

I worked at Amdocs full-time for more than 5 years

ProsExcellent for those who gets an opportunity at a very early stage of their career (within 2-3 yrs of college passout).
Gets to learn a lot of things technically and also professionally.
Interactions with teams across the North American continent adding to your knowledge base.
Good to work for 4-5 yrs..
If you don't care about your career and just want to earn money, then this place is for you.

Cons- No respect or acknowledgement for the good work contributed. Only appreciated when you leave the company.
- Bad management.
- Almost no salary increments.
- Learning curve reduces as you work more and more. You continue to fix the same issues every month, every release , every year.
- You continue to grow physically and mentally ...but never professionally as the growth opportunity is ZERO (Most of the existing programmers are close to 10 yrs in the same position and are close to 40).
- No Promotions. Any vacancies are filled by hiring from outside.
- You reach a saturation point where you don't know what you are really good at in a global scenario.
- By continuing to work this way, you will reach a stage where you are not qualified to be a manager (since the only thing you will learn is how to fix the issues) and continue to be a programmer at 35.
- You can never compete with anyone outside Amdocs, because you don't know anything else.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the needs of your developers.
Give them an opportunity to grow

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Not a place I would recommend

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Montreal, QC

I worked at Amdocs

ProsMoney is the only reason to work for Amdocs

ConsLong work hours,
disrespectful managers,
outdated technologies and software
no opportunity to grow
military approach

Advice to Senior ManagementShow a little care for your employees, not only once a year, when you distribute hot dogs
Use advanced technologies

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

IF have other choices, do not come to Amdocs.

Senior SME (Current Employee)
Montreal, QC

I have been working at Amdocs

ProsGood compensation (for some) if you are lucky (belong to the right group).
Good to have on CV.

ConsNot creative environment. Incompetent management. Top-down micromanagement. Not fair promotions.

Advice to Senior ManagementYour employees are often very smart (and initally very motivated). Do not kill the talent; step away when you know you have nothing to contribute.

More like a Staff Augmentation company rather than a consultancy

Senior SME (Current Employee)

I have been working at Amdocs

ProsThe compensation is comparable and you'll really stand out if you do your job because most people don't.

ConsManagement does not appreciate your work and will make you stay up all night to to do a "really important" task. Amdocs gives you a good idea of what NOT to do on a project. There are a few good managers that will really help you with your career but most do not care at all so at the end of the day, it doesn't matter.

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees with respect and judge their work based on what they've done and not how much time they spent doing it. Get to know your employees and understand their interests and skill set so they will be utilized to their full potential.

Amdocs do not disclose the real job profile before hiring.

SME (Trainee) (Current Employee)
Pune (India)

I have been working at Amdocs full-time for less than a year

ProsOnly reason to work here is the Salary and company policies.

ConsThey do not disclore the job profile they are hiring you for before joining.
I joined as an SME Trainee for Application Support, where in interview they took a total technical intervew and put me in T2 non-technical support. I am highly dissatisfied with this.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Dismal place to work. Only work for them if there are no other options.

Development Manager (Former Employee)
Charlotte, NC (US)

I worked at Amdocs full-time for more than 10 years

ProsBenefits: on par with most corporations. Healthcare is reasonably priced and plan selection is good.

Cons1. Very poor HR policies. Amdocs has a policy that there must be poor ratings given to some percentage of the employee base deserved or not.
2. When Amdocs bought the company I was working for the first thing they did was give senior management stay bonuses. Then everyone on the management team was demoted one level down.
3. The first thing Amdocs said after the acquisition was 'These people make too much money can't wait till we can take care of that'.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

That's how extreme capitalism tastes

Java Programmer (Former Employee)
Haifa (Israel)

I worked at Amdocs full-time for more than a year

ProsYoung and dynamic environment
When economy not in it's worst, the easiest to get in as the first job

ConsYoung and dynamice environment actually means that every grown up around either promoted or bailed, and dynamic means they will never stop to get the most of your back.
