    Pros

    Flexibility
    Stability
    Competitive salaries

    Agility is a well established company with a global outreach. With over 500 offices worldwide, it offers an opportunity to work in a true diverse work environment.

    Cons

    Limited training
    Outdated technology
    Little room for advancement

    With a dated system in desperate need of upgrades, processes take double the time. And with a strong corporate mentality, too many resources are spent on that part of the business with not always positive results.

    Advice to Management

    If you invested time in acknowledging your employees and recognize them as your driving force, you would create much more pleasant work environment. Recognize your talent and stop relying on unqualified individuals to run operations that will, in the long run cost you money and good people.

    Lack of communication for the new hires. The on boarding process was not existent. Lot of communication confusion between the layers of management and the overall direction.

    Create a sales plan build for long term growth. Build the infrastructure to support your new reps.

    Working hard does not necessarily make the company successful. Many good people in wrong positions.

    Pros

    - Flexible time off policies (floater holidays, generous annual vacation/sick time)
    - Above industry average pay for most positions
    - Most employees and management had good intentions
    - Good day to day office environment

    Cons

    - Verbal and written agreements not always coming to fruition
    - Unwillingness to make a decision by leadership
    - Corporate politics
    - Not enough business diversification
    - Lack of information and strategic direction from executive team

    Advice to Management

    Never make a promise you cannot deliver on. Employees would rather hear the truth and deal with reality then get their hopes up and disappointed later. Good intentions only get you so far. Bad decision making hurts both short and long term health of the company.
