    I have been working at Agilex Technologies as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    - VERY friendly and open doors, could even talk to CTO
    - Food. Lots of it.
    - Recreational activities and an afternoon workout session
    - Free to switch projects
    - Many company activities (picnics by the lake, car show, teaching kids, etc.)
    - No "eyes" or breathing-down-your-neck managers
    - Flexible hours
    - Agile
    - Pertaining to the internship, way more events than the normal company events and you get to meet cool people like a real FBI agent (with cool stories!). More food for interns, and the work was very satisfying.

    Cons

    - Not enough variety of project types
    - Would like to see more advanced technologies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is awesome that the company has a horizontal structure, but would be nice to centralize all managers under one entity (ie better use of wiki, not necessarily another manager) because many similar issues show up across teams. Minimize time spent repeating tedious tasks by informing all managers.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, competitive salary,, Average benefits

    Cons

    Once on a contract, VERY difficult to change; For "an employee-owned company", unless you are a founder, forget ownership. Bob LaRose must be turning in his grave.

    I worked at Agilex Technologies

    Pros

    Good salary; great benefits, a few really good people on staff.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations, sweat shop mentality, very HIGH STRESS environment, you are very simply a "number." The leadership does not give a rat's A about their subordinates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Their goal was to sell the company, and they just did. Go pound sand...

    I have been working at Agilex Technologies full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Agilex has a growing college recruitment program that is committed to your professional development from the time you talk to a recruiter at a college career fair, to the 3 week summer orientation, through the beginning of your job. I was impressed throughout the entire process of beginning my career at Agilex with how the people at the company valued my career growth. The training was unparalleled, we were Agile certified before we went out into our project teams! We also got the rare opportunity to interact with Agilex' co-founder, current executives and leaders across the company who now know us by name.

    Cons

    The 401(k) isn't great but I hear that's about to get much better...

    I have been working at Agilex Technologies

    Pros

    + A large number of talented people at all levels
    + A successful formula for helping the Federal Government solve difficult problems
    + Mostly flat management structure with little bureacracy

    Cons

    + Growing pains in the form of constant facilities changes
    + No pool of tenured people to draw on for new work, so no better than anyone else fishing the street for talent to staff new projects
    + Increasing delivery quality problems due to not having a solution to the resourcing problem

    Pros

    The project is good, too bad the senior employees working on it are not.

    Cons

    The senior employees who are leads and some of the managers are conceited, take sport in humiliating people for their mistakes, and use public forums to name people who make minor mistakes and make them out to be dummies. This appears to be the company's culture, and I am very sorry I took a job with this company that seems to have a very unprofessional culture. Senior employees mock and harass other employees and call them out publicly on project forums, no one seems to do anything to stop this, it is causing HUGE morale issues on this project!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the unprofessional work ethic of your senior employees on the project with Veteran's Affairs!
