    Pros

    Empowered to support government client

    Cons

    Senior managers rarely visit employees in their government client work sites. Computer technology for off-site employees over the internet is slow and does not work with all browsers. WebEx does not work either.

    Advice to Management

    Come visit your employees in government client spaces. Understand the employees role to satisfy the client first; company training and overhead, second.

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

    Pros

    The best part of this position is working as a contractor for NASA. Onsite management is engaged and actively works to make the program better year after year.

    Cons

    There isn't much to do for entertainment in the immediate Fairmont area. The health plan has gotten worse over the last few years.

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

    Pros

    It was A JOB; I hadn't had one in two years and this one was like manna from heaven. That was April 2015. It is an EXCELLENT job; it is in the Pentagon.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, what Engility was looking for was a clerk; a simple butt in a chair they could make money on. ZERO increase in salary over two years of superb work; the client (Navy N2N6) is delighted with my work but corporate could care less. Much of my work is well outside the SOW; again, the PM could care less. I have worked as a contractor for 14 years since my military retirement in 2003; EGL is by far THE WORST company I've have ever worked for. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THEM TO ANYONE!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Get a grip on your N2N6 program before it is too late!!!

    Pros

    Engility has some great people and very interesting projects. They are very willing to assist their employees to move up the career ladder.

    Cons

    Employment status can change quickly based on contracts. Their Home Town Lead (HTL) structure for employee reviews are not very effective.

    Good people that will back you up and support your efforts.

    Due to constantly changing contracts, there can be time of layoffs due to contract termination.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the transparency up. As contracts drew to a close, you did a good job of keeping us informed.
