In hindsight... horrible!

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

ProsStill some of the most talented people I've ever worked with.

ConsI have been able to overcome the years of brainwashing. The worst part involved the infamous lack of work/life balance. Many reviews revolved around the horrendous career paths, but when just about everyone is working 80 hour weeks, it's difficult to differentiate yourself unless you have an Israeli last name, which still does not guarantee a promotion. Also mentioned is the stagnant technology, which will hinder your chances of finding a position outside of the telco space.

Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management would not deem this site worthy to even acknowledge. To my former coworkers, I urge you to get out and really look for a company you won't be a slave to. To those considering accepting job offers, think twice unless you're desperate.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Amdocs Widow

Consultant (Former Employee)

I worked at Amdocs full-time for more than 8 years

ProsThey hire highly qualified candidates.

ConsThey do not reward based on merit. Those of us whose spouses work for Amdocs are known as "Amdocs Widows" for a reason. There is absolutely no concern for work/family balance.

Advice to Senior ManagementWhen you hire an employee, you are also involving the family. Stop hoarding the employees' time and energy and causing their families to deteriorate as a result.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Good company with good benefits

Senior Subject Matter Expert (Current Employee)
Guaynabo, PR (US)

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

ProsAmdocs is a good company that gives to your employees very good conditions of work.
They have good training materials and big knowledge database.
Also, as it's a big company, you have an open channel to speak with other coworkers from other countries.

ConsYou basically have no career opportunities. You just need to work 3~5 years to get promoted.
As you grow in the company you do not receive money for extra worked hours. They make it clear on your contract.

Advice to Senior ManagementMaybe create a new career opportunity program.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
