    I worked at Agility Logistics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good people to work for with good intentions. There was a real sense of community. Agility offered good benefits and employee incentives.

    Cons

    I worked at a satellite office that struggled with resources. We were going through some financial difficulties at the time so it was understandable.

    Advice to Management

    keep up the good work. I had the sense that employees were valued and that means the world. One thing that I would suggest is move the IT department to the Philippines.

    Pros

    If you like to work for a Corrupt workplace then this is the place for you.

    Cons

    They expect you to work longer hours past your work time and even on weekends if needed. you tell HR about what is going on show proof of the favoritism and nothing is done. They load more work on you when someone leaves in stead of hiring another person. They expect you to do 2 people work and when you fail or fall short of 2 person job they repremand you even when you tell them it's to much work. they don't care.

    Advice to Management

    Packing coordinator department is corrupt.

    Pros

    Everyone is nice and great to work with. Managers do know what they are going and will help you in any way possible.

    Cons

    Its difficult to move up since they hire people from other company's. There are few managers that do show favoritism.

    I worked at Agility Logistics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked for Agility International (a small business unit within Agility). The division was going gangbusters until the parent company was suspended by the USG and that unfortunately included everyone in the company who had nothing to do with the alleged fraud. I had a great time, managed some great projects, and was able to manage my work almost on my own time. Management was very laid back when it came to time off because they knew everyone there was responsible for their work and their customers.

    Cons

    It was a small division with very little hierarchy, so that meant few opportunities to move up, around, etc. but individual employees got to travel to meet customers or work on projects, though those opportunities were few and far in between as well. Overall, this was not a deal breaker for most people.

    Advice to Management

    Create more business opportunities for career growth.

    I worked at Agility Logistics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company provides a competitive salary. Most employees are experienced logistic professions. They have global presence in the market. Transparent shipping

    Cons

    They do not support a healthy work to personal life balance. They do promote from with in, if your friends with the right people. They have a high turnover rate as they are quick to fire people.

    Advice to Management

    A Team building work shop would improve the over work environment. Training courses on work place ethics. Fair treatment to all employees, there is a large amount of favoritism.
