    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.

    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.

    I worked at Agility full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility
    Stability
    Competitive salaries

    Agility is a well established company with a global outreach. With over 500 offices worldwide, it offers an opportunity to work in a true diverse work environment.

    Cons

    Limited training
    Outdated technology
    Little room for advancement

    With a dated system in desperate need of upgrades, processes take double the time. And with a strong corporate mentality, too many resources are spent on that part of the business with not always positive results.

    Advice to Management

    If you invested time in acknowledging your employees and recognize them as your driving force, you would create much more pleasant work environment. Recognize your talent and stop relying on unqualified individuals to run operations that will, in the long run cost you money and good people.
