    Broad range of projects, focus on values and getting things done, strong team culture to support development, focus on digital change and transformation for the benefit of communities, good opportunities to get out of your depth and broaden your own skills and abilities

    Pros

    - The Agilisys internship provides interns with a lot of responsibility from the get go, and interns get the opportunity develop into great Consultants rapidly
    - Management is approachable and always listen to requests
    - The people here are great and are very supportive in helping develop your career

    Cons

    - The pay doesn't compare to other companies, but this may be offset by the experience you get by being here
    - If you don't ask, you don't get (management will listen to you, and take you seriously, but it's not for people looking for an easy ride)
    - EOT still hasn't convinced me
    - Work-life balance can sometimes be an issue, depending on what project you are on
    - Divisions feel very disconnected

    Advice to Management

    - Pay your employees more or they will leave
    - Work on EOT more, show what value you as an employee will get
    - Work on improving the relationship between divisions

    I have been working at Agilisys full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I can only comment from my department's perspective, but here is my view:
    - Dynamic and growing company
    - Good leadership who are accessible and approachable
    - Good culture where ideas and ownership of initiatives are encouraged
    - A lot of good people
    - Performance and contribution to the business are recognised and rewarded

    Cons

    - Use of internal networks such as Yammer have helped, but greater transparency of what is happening across the business would be great
    - Cycling facilities - the head office in Hammersmith needs additional cycle parking, lockers and showers given the numbers of people occupying the office

    Advice to Management

    - You need to empower employees to participate more fully in growing and developing the company, given the EOT status- this means more visibility of future strategy and performance of the company

    Pros

    The working environment is great.
    Plenty of room for personal development.

    Cons

    The technology and equipment used can be seen as old and hinders productivity

    Advice to Management

    Do something more with the EOT. Currently it just seems like title and not much else.

    Pros

    Challenges you each week - if you want to be challenged - and willing to grant responsibility - which isn't perhaps what works best for everyone - is loyal and willing to let you grow. It's grown massively over those years and has ambition to match that

    Cons

    It doesn't suit everyone - there is change for sure - some people don't like that but it also creates opportunity - it works for me

    Advice to Management

    Having seen other reviews left - its clear some people left on poor terms - but that's not the company I recognise. It's not for everyone for sure. We haven't got everything right either - always things we are actively improving. Customers mean a great deal to us - keep that focus and keep making improvements.

    Pros

    Modern, agile, tech focused company. Good benefits and, for those who want it, the opportunity to grow. Will suit the independent worker who wants to take customers on transformational journeys.

    Cons

    For those who don't like working in silo structures, this might not be the environment for you. Those who enjoy a more direct style of management might not thrive. It's not easy (this might be seen as a pro by some).

    Advice to Management

    The silo structure ensures that customers get a truly tailored service, but it means the company isn't as efficient as it might be if there were more group level functions.

    Pros

    Nothing positive will come from working at this company.

    Cons

    The company and management are a joke. The only thing that saves them is the dedicated members of staff.
