    Pros

    Location Is good I guess

    Cons

    No clear guidance from up top; constant layoffs and cost cutting. Flat. No apparent energy from senior management. Politics all around - friends are promoted or saved from layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company and try to salvage the contracts you still have.

    I have been working at Engility full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work space is fine: nice offices, gym and cafeteria, etc. Management is improving and there's a real push to fix problems. The door is open if you want to voice a concern. Ethics matter. Focused on doing the right thing for the right reasons. This company took a risk in hiring me, and has shown willingness to invest in me and my professional growth. My manager is awesome.

    Cons

    Not sure how the benefits stack up against other companies. Recent departure of some people has left the rest of the office scrambling to fill positions, and internal systems could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Hire the right people: technically competent, knowledgeable about the industry, implementation. Stay positive - don't be afraid to fix things.

    I worked at Engility full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Location in Alexandria is great; some good people but overshadowed by retired megalomaniacs

    Cons

    hardly any yearly increases and too many former military egos; benefits not great

    Advice to Management

    be transparent; you are not in the military any more; you are a civilian and no one is being disrespectful for not calling your retiring rank

    I have been working at Engility full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great salary, bonuses (if you have the right manager)

    Cons

    Poor communication with the employees. Worked there for 2.5 years and only had 2 meetings. Low employee morale (mainly due to layoffs). The company does nothing for the employees. Everything is done at the department level like Christmas parties etc.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with your employees! Everyone hates meetings but you need to have one every once in awhile to keep everyone in the loop. Rumors and hearsay is not the way for employees to find out information.

    I have been working at Engility full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Location is close to a metro stop (5 minute walk - you can see the building from the metro station). Great people. Historically, IRG was a great place to work, but our win rate has decreased and morale.

    Cons

    We were bought out by L3 and then spun off to become part of Engility. Engility primarily does work in the defense/intelligence sectors, so the international development business is not a great fit. We don't receive a lot of support from the parent corporation.
