    Stop inter-departmental warfare, address reputational issues and morale issues.
    Create a small company ethos that encourages innovation.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    corporate 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 ManagementAdvice

    They never think about employees, only about profits

    Good opportunity for experienced or dedicated staff. Too much "corporate" management makes effecting change hard.

    Pros

    UK benefits are excellent, and worth the slightly uncompetitive salary. Processes do improve, albeit slowly. You can progress quickly if you are experienced or willing to live in the office. The right projects (high visibility) can be very rewarding as they can be used to effect changes which would normally have taken too long.

    Cons

    The bureaucracy is overkill, there are too many levels of management. Inter departmental communication is poor. Experienced staff are all too often promoted away from where they can make a real difference, leaving unexperienced staff to attempt to continue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clearer communication about WHY they are making decisions.

    Pros

    Amdocs will provide you the best knowledge in terms of B/OSS products. The products are very good and there's a lot of room to learn new things, if there's a quest.
    Best part of Amdocs is the work culture. People are very friendly and helpful from the day-1.
    Amdocs gives a lot of facilities to it's employees like Day-Care, Spouse bring Spouse. Lot of cultural initiatives like Mentor Together, Blossom etc.
    Good work life balance
    Away from stupid systems like in other Indian companies like noting time during entry and exit in the company, avoiding smart phones, removing internet etc.

    Cons

    The Indian GL and Managers before 10 years are now Directors and VPs. They have started the traditional Indian way of cutting costs and not stopping the good people from going.
    Israeli management will innovate, have best practices, effective project management and programme management in order to reduce costs., but Indian managers are taking that beauty of Amdocs away.
    Today in Amdocs, if you want to progress, you should be able to impress your superiors. If you know this skill, then nothing else is required. Onsites, promotions, favouritism and special facilities like leaving office at 4 pm are given to people who are 'ladlas' and 'ladlis' of the management. You will see the person who doesnt know anything promoted as manager, whereas person who is honestly working still gets an average grade.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please do something to stop favouritism in Amdocs and value the employees based on their work.
    If a person comes with an innovative idea, at least listen to him, before you talk to your favourite people.
