    I worked at Agility (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Workers are highly knowledgable
    Offices all around the world, all connected through a same internal os.
    Great company to start in this industry and to learn the business.

    Cons

    Old school on pretty much everything, open to changes but no open to change.
    Highly stressful work environment, which shouldn't be like that.
    A lot of of good IT tools, not fully used or not promoted at their potential by management team.
    Management Team pushing employees down instead of up.

    Advice to Management

    Work with our Team not against them, lessen to them too. Employees often are the future of a company, helping them to grown, you will grown too.

    Pros

    Friendly office environment, great learning experience for freshers if you want to get into the logistics industry.

    Pros

    Good PTO, friendly company, and very family oriented.

    Cons

    With the continuing of offshoring jobs I would not join any finance department (Accounting, Tax, etc). For all we know the jobs could be all gone soon.

    Advice to Management

    Asure department will not keep offshoring.

    Pros

    No visible scars and there are plenty of therapists in NYC

    Cons

    Seriously maligned values. No respect for employees. Treated like animals. Attractive initially but a dangerous cult inside.

    Advice to Management

    See deep psychotherapy

    Pros

    People are mostly good people.

    Cons

    Under new management. Loud work environment. Management is unprofessional. They do not promote within. They give higher positions to friends, former co-workers of management. People that work hard get no recognition. Those who sit around and talk all day are acknowledged as "good employees". People in higher positions don't do anything, all they do is delegate. People are not held accountable at all. Everything is brushed under a rug.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to staff. Actually invest in people who are in the company. Make people accountable.

    Hi there, We would love to know what is going on in Chicago. If you could please reach out to one of the HR reps or the Recruiters, that would be great!

    Pros

    A lot of good people work there

    Cons

    Management is terrible, nothing like I ever seen in another place I worked at.
    There is no rules only if they like you or not. One day you there and next you can be gone even if customers like you and your reviews are perfect.

    Advice to Management

    Be a human and treat your employees with respect.
