    Not very good work

    Senior Software Tester (Current Employee) Gurgaon, Haryana

    ProsFood and transport facilities are good.

    ConsBad quality of work
    Almost no growth options for people working in Testing domain
    Salary hike is very very bad as compared to other companies
    Weak HR
    Management only comes into picture during salary hikes. Rest of the year they are in dormant state

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

    OK

    SSME (Current Employee) Gurgaon, Haryana

    Pros1. You get good food at various times of the day.
    2. Your GLs are not technically involved, so you can fool them anytime.

    Cons1. 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 Senior Management1. Try look beyond people who have stayed long in the company. Promote people who are deserving.

    Not a good place for women to work, very judgmental management

    Development Expert (Current Employee) Gurgaon, Haryana

    Pros1>Site trip
    2> good exposure
    3> Its a pleasure working with israel team , you learn a lot

    Cons1> 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 Senior ManagementTake a notice of deprecating culture in DVCI.

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

    No Processes, pathetic work life balance

    Senior Subject Matter Expert (Current Employee) Pune

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

    Conswork 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 Senior ManagementUpper 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    3) hell lot of office politics
    4) employees are treated worse than factory labors.

    Amdocs do not disclose the real job profile before hiring.

    SME (Trainee) (Current Employee) Pune

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

    ConsThey 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.
