      Good if you want to settle, Bad if you want growth

      Pros

      1. Work culture is good. 2. Added benefits (Annual bonus, gift cards, cafeteria food, transportation). 3. Onsite opportunities depending on your luck. 4. Flexible work timings.

      Cons

      1. Company is not employee centric as it used to be in golden years. 2. Management's focus is only on product delivery and they don't care about employee's growth. Managers will ruin your career, if it helps them earn some more profit from customer. 3. Most of the projects are using very old technologies and support work is more than development. 4. Amdocs creates inhouse frameworks and tools and forces employees to work on them, even if those are outdated. Knowledge of these frameworks has no value outside Amdocs. 5. Limited learning opportunities, even if you learn something somehow you won't be able to use it in company. 6. Won't get promotion even after performing well. HR will always use Budget constraint as a reason to delay promotion. 7. Company has used corona situation very effectively to save money. No appraisal in 2020, No promotion due to budget constraints, Mandatory 18 days paid leave in last 6 months, even when company is showing profit continuously. 8. Below market standard salary.

      pros and cons of amdocs

      3 Oct 2020 - Software Engineer Associate in Pune

      Pros

      1) liberty: Amdocs is very flexible in it's timings. There is no swipe in, swipe out system, like in all major IT companies. You can come at any time and go at any time depending on the project requirements and understanding with your manager. 2) Good employee care: Amdocs provides you good food, breakfast, supper, free fruits all day long. Apart from that birthday gifts, milestone achievements, performance bonuses all are quite good. 3) Fair growth opportunities: Like all other companies, there is office politics as well, but I find it much lesser. If you perform well, you'll get noticed. If you don't, you'll get noticed much faster. :) 4) Good onsite opportunities: If you're lucky enough not to get into a bad line or team, almost all the teams in Amdocs have great short time on site opportunities. 5) Good work culture: Most of the people are friendly there, they will be ready to help you out

      Cons

      1) Working on ages old technologies: Being a product based company, people there are still working on legacy systems and ages old technologies, very few teams are working on cutting edge front end or web design technologies. 2) Until and unless you are in core product development, majorly you will be customizing the product for some clients, that will leave you with very less opportunities to explore, you'll have to do most of the things remaining in the boundaries of the architecture, as they would have already been done somewhere in the company. 3) No work life balance: Most of the people in the company work for long hours, which leaves very less time for their personal life. Amdocs is very selective in its hiring and there is always more work in the project than there are number of people. Also, as there is no bench system, you'll always be working on some project, you will rarely be free. I think the balance has to be restored from the upper management. 4) Quality of work being done is not that good. You won't be doing something extraordinary and the code you develop strengthens the product only, most of the times you won't be able to point out that what it is that you contributed in the project. Less visibility of your work.
