Bad Managers

Group Lead (Current Employee)
Pune

I have been working at Amdocs full-time for more than 5 years

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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Very nice company to settle down

I have been working at Amdocs full-time for more than 3 years

ProsFrequent Site, Good Hikes, Good Bonus, Very Professional Managments, Great work env, Very flexible, Very cooperative, care about employees.

ConsTechnical growth not very much.
Mainly working on wold technologies ( depends on project though)

Advice to Senior ManagementNo advice needed. They are doing perfect job.
If they increase their CTC standard pay, less people will leave the company. But this is true everywhere :)

amdocs is not for technically sound employees

SSME (Current Employee)
Pune

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

ProsNice HR policies, good benefits, average salary,

ConsLeads and Managers(~80%) doesn't have any technical or leadership skills which impacts genuine performance reviews. In other words, if u r good in buttering and making good PRs with Leads & Managers then you r eligible for good bonus or hike and if you focused on pure working and learning then u r wasting ur time and Money.

Not a company for Sales Guys

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Amdocs full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGood products, delivery capabilities and strong brand

ConsThey ask you to get 100M$ deal without any support on ground. If not, they will leave you for a rot without any support to prove yourself. Shortsighted as they don't even know that a 100M$ deal especially in the area they operate requires >3 year to fructify. At the end of the day you get frustrated without a a support and leave after no increments in all those years

Advice to Senior ManagementYou are 3.2B$ for last many years while you could have been >5 B$ by now....your strength (insecurity) is proving to be your enemy as just when you are about to succeed your insecurity makes you take some stupid decisions/actions

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
