    Pros

    1. You get good food at various times of the day.
    2. Your GLs are not technically involved, so you can fool them anytime.

    Cons

    1. Your GL is just a manager who keeps on bugging you on the progress of the project. He doesnt help you technically at all.
    2. The company is just for the persons who can butter and have stayed in the company for a long period.
    3. No team hierarchy, persons with 1 year experience can be seen doing work of 5-6 years experienced person.
    4. No transparency.
    5. No onsite opportunities atleast in service sector. They always say there is no budget and company is trying to move all the work offshore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Try look beyond people who have stayed long in the company. Promote people who are deserving.

    Pros

    1>Site trip
    2> good exposure
    3> Its a pleasure working with israel team , you learn a lot

    Cons

    1> You feel vulnerable to judgement as a woman, management doesn't take you seriously
    2> Bad culture, 90% management is men and they work on loyalty gathering, you need to be in favor of managers to rise.
    3>A lot of people try to steal credit from each other, you need to be very hard to survive here
    4> During downsizing first people to be fired are women. At least in some teams.
    5> Not Much scope for technically inclined people, this is a place for beurocrats and only people who rise are the non technical ones.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a notice of deprecating culture in DVCI.

    I have been working at Amdocs full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Since this is a product based company, the learning curve is good and also the in hand salary is better.

    Cons

    work life balance is worst.. the company has no value for employee and they care only about profit margins.
    People are only "resources" @ AMDOCS. The company holds not even CMMi 3.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management keeps blind eye to work life balance although everybody is aware of the situation.
    The Israeli management does not care so its not a point.

    5) non existent HR system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    a lot of money is wasted on useless training's, please ask your managers to adapt those in their lives also and start treating your employees as human beings.

    Pros

    Only reason to work here is the Salary and company policies.

    Cons

    They do not disclore the job profile they are hiring you for before joining.
    I joined as an SME Trainee for Application Support, where in interview they took a total technical intervew and put me in T2 non-technical support. I am highly dissatisfied with this.
