    I have been working at Engility full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay is really good and the Management team is outstanding. Great people that promote a friendly and less structured work environment. Not as rigid as other government contractors. You have the freedom to do your job without micro managers - as long as you do it well. This is a really great company to work for that has the vision to excel. The company took a leadership position with their business model and then in the industry consolidation process.

    Cons

    Cons are Industry related. Everyone in the industry is cutting cost; especially, on overhead and recompete contracts. However, this is across the industry. Some people don't understand that everyone is doing this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to be thought leaders and care for your employees. You have done a great job!

    I worked at Engility

    Pros

    It is a job. You will receive some sort of low pay for your super long hours.

    Cons

    Low pay
    Terrible benefits
    Incompetent management
    Long hours for no extra pay or time off

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start valuing your employees to cut down on the turn over. Decent health insurance would be nice. Paying for certifications would also be ok.

    Your claim is that you are a low cost solution for clients but what is in it for employees? Low cost for clients translates to crappy pay and benefits for employees.

    Pros

    I had a great time at this company. Everyone was so friendly and helpful at the same time. I had the fortune of working with such great people in a great environment that fosters learning and camaraderia.

    Cons

    Benefits weren't that good by the time I left. In fact, they were degrading.

    Good group of folks to work for.

    Not with the company but being a contractor to the government is difficult if the client treats them like second class citizens.

    Pros

    The team is very supportive and hard-working. Everyone pitches in to help each other to make our deadlines and submit winning compliant proposals to USAID and we have fun & respect each other while doing so!

    Cons

    Many of us wish we were still located in the Washington DC office. We make the most of Braddock Road though and have cozied up to the space. It's a nice building which helps. A lot of us still bike to work and there is a bike rack in the garage. Free gym in the building is also great to take advantage of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership training was fantastic I hope that it is continuing! Also grateful that we brought the 401K back!!
