    I have been working at Agile

    Pros

    The culture is based on trust and accountability. No counting of calls - just results! The comp plan (better than 25% of anywhere in Atlanta) and the flexibility offered are big pluses. Sales team have great relationships with clients, Recruiters really dedicated to finding top talent and Ops team is efficient and always ready to help.

    Cons

    Some bad apples were allowed to stay too long causing problems for the many good people who are here doing great work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't settle for hiring people (and keeping them too long) consistent with who we really are!

    I have been working at Agile

    Pros

    I am very fulfilled with my work at Agile. I am able to work with a close, talented team who make me want to be better every day. I am free to express my ideas, thoughts and concerns in all areas. I can truly say I've found a home here!

    Cons

    Some days are long, because Agile is small company, you get out what you put in. Need to be a dedicated, hard worker to be successful here (this can or cannot be considered a con)

    I have been working at Agile

    Pros

    Agile provided me an opportunity to “step up” my game and do things I didn’t know were even possible! I have an opportunity to serve some of the best clients in the Atlanta market. Agile's results focused culture allows me the freedom to manage my own desk and day to day while providing me flexibility in my personal life AND a thriving career!

    Cons

    While flexibility is certainly offered, it's not necessarily the pulse of the organization's cultural philosophy. Also would be nice to have 401K matching or more long term incentives for employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Define who you really are in and out and own it!

    I worked at Agile full-time

    Pros

    Good tools, good processes, some good people. That's it.

    Cons

    Terrible management. Operations team are more valued than the Production team in their eyes, which is crazy! They value those who cost them $$ more than those who make them $$. Zero appreciation. Imagine yourself under a giant thumb, being crushed for every bit of juice you can muster. Management Tornado...when they're out of the office, it's calm...when they're in the office, watch out! Owner's lack of knowledge to what's really happening, and relying on poor "intel" from the wrong folks. 4 Director-level leaders hired & fired within the last 3 years. I could go on...and on...and on...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get someone else to run your company! And work with them, not against them!

    THE WORSE PLACE I HAVE EVER WORKED

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Alpharetta, GA (US)
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Alpharetta, GA (US)

    I worked at Agile full-time

    Pros

    The only Pro is the Sales people actually have good relationships with the clients, and do a great job of bossing and bulling the clients into interviews and offers. Often times resulting in fall-offs. Also the Commission plan at the time was good, which does change in mid- month/year at times.

    Cons

    Horrible culture, High Stress, High turn-over, unrealistic expectations, CEO manages sales, & is on constant Sabatical for weeks/months, recruiting manager dont last long because account managers run them off and the Account managers take over, recruiters are micro-managed by every direction and often loose all self-esteme no matter how good they are/were. Stale jobs with the same clients open for long periods. Some clients are slow to pay resulting in long waits for Comm checks. The 3.5 employees who have managed to stay there over 2 years run the show and as long as you are on their good side you will be fine, get on the "Crap List" everyone knows about with the owner or Account Managers and your out of there. Happens often.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get new management. Because what you have likes to meet about changes but dont really execute. And the owner should make their own decissions and not reply on 1-2 other people to make all the decissions for the company just because the owner is rarely there and would rather be out shopping or taking trips.
