    Hard work!

    Consulting Manager (Current Employee) London, England

    ProsFreedom to do whatever you want. Can take on any role. Good exposure to Telecoms. Challenging environment with opportunity to learn on the job

    ConsDon't expect any reward even when you bring in new business! Too many divisions. Hard work but need to be self motivated to survive. Don't expect any in house training!

    Bureaucracy gone mad

    Software Engineer (Current Employee) London, England

    ProsDecent salary to start with, but most likely because that's what I had when Amdocs bought the company I worked for. It certainly hasn't kept pace with inflation.
    Stable company with good bottom line - although I have no idea how the company makes money.

    ConsBureaucracy gone mad, my sense of accomplishment as a developer is in achieving anything - despite the best efforts of processes and procedures to stop me.

    A very arrogant 'not invented here' attitude when it comes to development tools. Hugely insistent on customising tools - and then stuffing them up completely in the process. Xtra-C - I'm talking about you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReduce management layers. Developers are vastly outnumbers by managers.

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

    I imagine the work experience can be very different depending on which group you work in.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Reading, England

    ProsBenefits are some of the best I've seen.
    Flexible work hours
    Ability to work from home
    Opportunity to experience different parts of the company

    ConsVery political - "escalations" at the drop of a hat
    Meetings about having meetings about what's going to be on the agenda of the next meeting
    Difficult to get your head around the different parts of the organization. Plus, it's constantly changing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementImprove the PMI process to include newly acquired companies into the Amdocs fold more fully
    Set objectives that are complimentary across departments rather than conflicting.

    If it is so bad, why are we still there?

    Senior SME (Current Employee) London, England

    ProsIt is a good company to build your management career, starting form technical position. Not a lot of companies will allow you to do it

    Conscorporate culture, becoming worse and worse with years.
    There is no way of rewarding technical staff and expertise. If you don't want to be a manager in the end of the day, there is nothing to do in Amdocs

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey never think about employees, only about profits
