    Pros

    If you are lucky enough you will get good team to work with. Working environment is good. Lot of training sessions. Job Flexibility.

    Cons

    No sure and definite proper growth. Company can show you the doors when ever they want. Increments are very low and at times nill if you are a avg performer and just too concerned with your work and not goofing around with managers or directors. This will give you an insight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is just for name sake. They need to focus more on employees than on processes. management cant accept a change even if they agree that its good. Too main stream.

    Pros

    - Good start-up package for freshers
    - Provides many facilities
    - Good work environment

    Cons

    - Salary hikes are worst.
    - Company can put you any any part of SDLC (testing/support/dev) and that too randomly. They will not consider your interests if you are joining as a fresher. This is worst.
    - Management is not that good. (seems like this is the problem with every company)
    - Company wants you to work 12-15 hours a day without any good compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Please keep employees happy if you want them to work whole-heartedly.
    - If work type along with promotions and hikes are reaching expectations, there will be no reason to leave the organization.

    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.

    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.
