    I have been working at Edgile (Less than a year)


    Edgile is a firm made up of Partners and practitioners with deep expertise in their various Security, Risk, and Compliance domains - mostly from the Big 4. This has fostered a culture of success and professionalism that makes Edgile very unique and easy to transition into. I highly recommend this firm if you are wanting more focus and attention out of your career development and client engagements.


    There is significantly less "fluff" involved with Edgiles business model. If a firm with limited bench sitting, less junior staffing on projects, and virtually no regularly mundane internal activities is attractive, then Edgile is for you!

    Advice to Management

    Practitioner morale is high, benefits are great, growth is rapid, and this firm truly looks and feels like a Big 4 firm - inside and out. My best advice to senior management is to keep up what you are doing!

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Edgile.


    Career fair and then two in person interviews with an HR rep and a mid-level manager. Nothing too difficult was asked, they mostly talked about their own experiences. Mostly the usual questions about your internship and school experiences.
