    Pros

    Non manger employees are awesome. The long timer employees is what keeps the company going because without them their managers would be lost.

    Cons

    Hard work is not appreciated. Only those who suck up to the managers will move up or be rewarded of any kind. Managers don't know how to manage nor how to do their own work. Work is thrown on those who work hard because others slack but are in the managers favors.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate ALL employees!

    Pros

    Good people to work for with good intentions. There was a real sense of community. Agility offered good benefits and employee incentives.

    Cons

    I worked at a satellite office that struggled with resources. We were going through some financial difficulties at the time so it was understandable.

    Advice to Management

    keep up the good work. I had the sense that employees were valued and that means the world. One thing that I would suggest is move the IT department to the Philippines.

    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    Outdated technology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.

    They expect you to work longer hours past your work time and even on weekends if needed. you tell HR about what is going on show proof of the favoritism and nothing is done. They load more work on you when someone leaves in stead of hiring another person. They expect you to do 2 people work and when you fail or fall short of 2 person job they repremand you even when you tell them it's to much work. they don't care.

    Packing coordinator department is corrupt.
