    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.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    2. Flexible Timings and no swipe in/outs
    3. Best Projects and Lot to Learn.
    4. Good Benefits.
    5. Job Security.

    Former Employee - Senior Subject Matter Expert in Pune (India)

    I worked at Amdocs full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked in the India office (in Pune) for about 5 years with some travel to the US. Perks and travel had always been the differentiating factor for Amdocs, and some of it still holds true. The product division has great work, good benefits as well as name recognition

    Cons

    Some of the perks and travel have been eroded. perhaps due to the change in orientation from a product to a services company. The services side is like a outsourcing company in India with slightly better pay, benefits and some travel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees in the services side more and give them opportunities to get some parity with the product side
