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 ManagementAdvice

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

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

    Pros

    Has policies very friendly to employees. Very good exposure large telecom and cable client services and working cultures. Has very talented technical employees.

    Cons

    Amdocs Champaign management are all internal employees promoted to management. BUT, None of them have any management or people skills, not even basic courtesy. Very high prevalence of Nepotism and back-stabbing politics. Their only offer of retaining departing employees - ' Do you have a spouse, we can offer them job here '

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve working environment by focusing on long-term development of employees. Trust your employees and delegate responsibility. Micromanagement and petty politics should be discouraged. Practice basic management skills - say at least 'Thank you' and 'Please'.

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

    Pros

    Very good telecom experience acquired, international experience available, strong educational opportunities. Big project experience

    Cons

    Awful culture, untrusting, difficult at times to work within the cultural aggravation. Annual reviews are a catch 22. Difficult to succeed. Work life balance does not exist. All work, family takes back seat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care a little more about turnover. Begin to change culture. Set appropriate incentives to correct behavioral issues.
