    I worked at Engility as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Interns are involved within their project team and tackling real projects. Gained valuable knowledge and overall had a positive experience during the internship.

    Cons

    Sometimes felt a little distant from the supervising manager during the internship.

    Pros

    The company has great benefits and flexible work hours.

    Cons

    Since the company is fairly new, it is in the process of constant re-organization and bosses seem to change every 6 months.

    Pros

    Office culture is fairly laid back and friendly.

    Cons

    Benefits were reduced, time off was reduced. 401k matching was cut. Raises have been on hold for a couple of years. Cut office manager, duties were distributed around office.

    I worked at Engility full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    People that work at the Lexington Park location are fantastic

    Cons

    Since L-3 Communications spun off the Engility group into its own company, the management seems to be inconsistent finding opportunities for the work force.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep closer contact with those who the company is supporting at the Patuxent River and St Indigoes facilities, Keep them confident in the work force and get them to provide more work for the group to perform.

    I worked at Engility (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good work to life balance. Benefits were on line with other companies. Not a lot of upward mobility.

    Cons

    Upper management is out of touch with employees. HR took forever to answer a question or did not get to you.

    I have been working at Engility full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Strong customer focus, which is to be expected from a long time govt. contracting company. As an 'embedded' support personnel at a customer site, keeping the customer satisfied is the priority, and adequate support is given in that pursuit.

    Cons

    Recent and forecast growth is through acquisitions. This does lead to difficulties and challenges integrating the companies, adjusting expectations, and managing the employee benefits. Having now been on both ends of the acquisition story, I feel Engility is doing an above-average job of integrating new companies, but there is still room for improvement. Lack of 401K contributions is one particular sticky point.

    Pros

    So far it has been a positive experience with my short time with Engility. I hope that I can continue to grow with this company and enjoy a long career with the company.

    Cons

    I was disappointed when my old company was sold to Engility as our benefits had been up in the air. I am still awaiting the notices of what our benefits package will be before I have any cons with that respect.

    The continuous changes in leadership results in a lack of organizational direction
