  1. Interesting company to work for. Diverse experience depending on which area you end up working in. Some very good people

    I worked at Agilisys part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some good people but also some machiavellian practices going on - which is fine if you can take it and survive. You need to be street wise to survive!

    Cons

    Pay doesn't go up much year on year.

    I have been working at Agilisys

    Pros

    I try to remain positive and look for the pros but there really aren't many. Holiday allowance is ok. There are some decent benefits like cycle to work scheme.

    Cons

    It's all very disorganised. There doesn't seem to be any plan or direction. If there is, it's not communicated. There is no training available and no interest in keeping staff. There's a lot of paperwork and bureaucracy involved in everything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to staff and customers. Stop cutting corners to cut costs. Invest in good staff members you already have rather than replacing everyone with a trainee or apprentice.

    I have been working at Agilisys full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    You might end up being placed on Client site - where you'll get to meet some great people and get some good experience

    Cons

    It's about who you know, rather than what you do. Don't expect a promotion or pay rise for good work.
    High employee turnover - Just remember - you can always be replaced.

    Pros

    none - absolutely none at all. Management by fear

    Cons

    A senior manager breached a personal confidence for her own personal advantage. She was rewarded as a result.

    Also huge amount of personal abuse from CTO - swearing, ranting

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Total overhaul of company culture

    Pros

    Helped with my current career and development as a Server Engineer

    Cons

    Some areas of the business lack in experience, knowledge and management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Higher Management need to review and address lower tier management actions and review their competence.

    Pros

    If you're in one of the central groups there's a wide choice of projects and some good people

    Cons

    All the focus is on monthly revenue targets. I was even put on projects because of the level of revenue they could earn, even though they were nothing to do with my job description or objectives. If you're good they'll work you into the ground. If you survive long enough you'll be immune to consequences because there's no proper performance management. There's no clear strategy, and the different groups won't even share basic information even when everyone knows it'll cause conflicts for the same client because of personal agendas. There's no personal or career development, and no money spent unless it's a last resort.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a single clear strategy across the company, make everyone stick to it, have proper performance management against a clear skills grid, and invest in the people and processes.

    Pros

    Some good colleagues and some good ideas.

    Cons

    Employees are costs not assets. Bullying, sociopathic behavior by some senior managers. Lack of regard to core values of honesty and integrity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Deliver in total what you are contracted to deliver...with the people you have told the client you are using. Don't tell the client they are working from home if they are doing something for another client. Client's dime means client's time!
