    Worse company i have worked for

    SSME (Current Employee) Gurgaon, Haryana

    Prosonsite on the cost of technical expertise

    Consbad bad management, worst culture, worst managers, worst HR, politics everywhere, lack of knowledgeable people, no learning, zero technical expertise, good performance is never appreciated, low salaries, worse industry hikes, buttering is the only criteria for anything good that will happen to you.

    Advice to Senior Managementremove old managers who gives no good input, take high salary and do politics.
    follow policies and not politics.

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

    Very Bad Company now-a-days.

    SSME (Former Employee) Pune

    ProsFlexible timings,WFH facilities,Free Snacks,Nice office decoration,Friendly team members

    ConsHeavy politics. If you dont have a project you are gone.No bench to accommodate resources till a new project comes.No process in anything be it technical or managerial processes.Manager's ratings are final,no facility to raise your concerns against ratings.A totally hypocrite company wherein they will do 1000 rounds of skip leveels,1-o-1 blabla but would never act on the concerns made.

    Advice to Senior ManagementImprove the situation else you will be short of talents very soon.

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

    Those who think it a wonderful organisation have not seen the industry

    SSME (Current Employee)

    Pros1) Recognition and financial rewards in projects are exciting (if you manage to get them in a large team).

    I am not able to see much Pros after experiencing work at other companies.

    ConsOverall very less respect for developers.

    1) Very less industry standard technical exposure.
    2) 0% respect for work life balance. If you don't work for stretched hours then you might get poor rating in evaluation.
    3) Very less flexibility in switching technologies. All depends on luck when you were first allocated the project.
    4) Continuity of job is very uncertain. I have seen many intelligent people were given poor rating and were asked to leave (victims of office politics). Now they are in superb companies like Amazon, Walmart, Redbus, etc
     5) Onsite opportunity is history now. There are sites but travel department is not friendly. People deny going abroad these days.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRead the cons and try to improve it (although i have very less faith :) )

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

    Bad Managers

    Group Lead (Current Employee) Pune

    ProsAmdocs is good company as this is world leader in telcom billing. Working here, if lucky and get good exposure then it's a learning for you and specially if you are capable to make yourself free from the 95% garbage work (no learning/monotonous repetitive work not giving any broad picture) which happens to be a lot here.

    Onsite opportunities with conditions:- it depends on ur luck to get the onsite opportuniy some get in 1 year some don't get in 10 years even following dedicatedly.

    Cons1. very bad management.
    2. very poor indian style planning. the management includes weekends in their plan in all projects.
    3. Even though you will propose managers that I would work 3 hours extra per day, 5 Days please make my weeked free. they simply reject as due to poor indian management brain.
    They are very greedy and always want more, doesn't matter how much you give them. As a result resource in project goes 1 hrs in lunch .5 hrs in Tea, 1 hours in pantry and 10 minutes walk from the 12 hr they report too. That's mandatory as anyway even you seriously work and give more in weekdays they are going to ask you to work in weekends without a single penny extra.
    4. mangers don't have to work excpet chasing and calling employees day night.
    5. very poor apprisal system. technically strong and weak people get same salary hike as a result every year technically strong people leave.
    6. lot of buttering and favorism.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe only problem is ass hole managers. The managers in India are not worth their posts. They like buttering and persons who just says yes yes and does nothing. They are moron and smotionally fool. As a result technically strong people who are responsible for the project success eaither get the same salary than a non effective team mates or get even some time lesser. I think they don't know the meaning and importance of the appraisal. I want to ask Insraelee management please fire some managers from India, specially from top.

    Worst mistake to join this company

    SSME (Current Employee) Pune

    ProsWork culture, Cab, Learning environment, and you get the chance to know about Telecommunications.
    You don't have to go to your home as there will be no holidays/vacations.
    They should sell this company to someone like AT&T and distribute money to employees.

    ConsSalary Way lower than standards. like 1/3 of what other good companies pay.(India Only)
    Senior Management doesn't know anything about managing employees.(Only Applicable to India)
    No chance of vertical growth
    No work life balance, they make you work like slaves.
    I never did any serious programming even if my job description said so.
    People always keep talking in Hindi.
    There are no Incentives/bonuses.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't talk to programmers. OR Don't talk to programmers.

    Forgettable experience

    Director (Former Employee) Pune

    ProsCompensation and some of the employee benefit programs are the only good things that I can think of.

    ConsAt its worst, when it comes to work ethics and fair play.
    The more you stay, the more de-skilled you would become, especially if you're into management

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt's probably been said a million times, nevertheless it still needs to be said to the Sr. Management:
    Treat people as "people", no less
    Develop "trust" in India Management Team,
    Don't treat India team as just "Order Takers"

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

    Good for few Bad for Many

    SSME (Former Employee) Pune

    Prosif you looking for a opportunity in a good service sector company then amdocs is the place for you.

    Constoo much biased no matter how much hard work you put in opportunities goes to only few people . israeli domination at peeks and gujju favorism at heights ( atleast in my division).if you are from premier colleges of india never look at amdocs you deserve more than this (personal exp ).they say it as product based company but not completely true .

    Advice to Senior ManagementIndian management is worst they are very much biased especially for onsite opportunities .in two years of my experience i saw a paradigm shift in recruitment process they are doing mass recruitment with lesser pay as done in other service sector companies but work here is not same as other companies , its a legacy system and needs experienced people

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