    I worked at Allegis Global Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Strong and consistent values and culture - Freedom to challenge colleagues and leaders to achieve the right outcomes - Seemingly endless opportunity to stretch and develop your skillset, knowledge and experience - Autonomy for those in leadership positions - Genuine people who want to learn from one another - Extremely client satisfaction focused strategy - Global company with opportunities abroad and... diversity of thought throughout the business - An MD that is open, honest and willing to invest time in individuals not just his direct team

    Cons

    - Compensation/Reward is at lower levels than the rest of the market - Innovative tech stack that simply isn't utilized to it's full potential - An approach to market that can sometimes promise more than is realistic to deliver - Structured training and development at middle-management level isn't as accessible as it is at individual contributor or senior management level

    Advice to Management

    You are running a fantastic organisation that is supportive, collaborative and achieving success - but you could have even more by investing as much in your delivery teams as you do in your client-facing teams.

    I worked at Allegis Global Solutions full-time

    Pros

    There are some nice people who have unfortunately been conned into believing this is a company with a "great culture".

    Cons

    Extremely poor management from top to bottom, non-existent benefits, hire and fire mentality, awful client service and management and junior staff stretched beyond capability and pay.

    Advice to Management

    Stop believing your own PR - the culture is toxic to the core. The company isn't competitive in the market, there is no diversity at leadership level, and unless you party you'll be pushed to the sidelines and out of the club. Sort out the pay and benefits, they are atrocious.

    Pros

    Used to be an organisation that I felt proud to work for and there was always a positive attitude, knowing we were the best in the business.

    Cons

    Has become a toxic environment. The salary is not reflective of market trends. The hours are very long. There is an attitude to finish projects, regardless of the implications.

    Advice to Management

    Stop and understand why people are unhappy and soo many people are leaving. Stop employing inexperienced Directors.

    Pros

    • AGS is genuinely a diverse place to work. I work in an office where my colleagues speak French, Spanish, Polish, Lithuanian & German on a daily basis. Diversity is celebrated, from Diwali to Christmas to Chinese New Year. • The office environment is vibrant, everyone is supportive, new starters are made to feel welcome. Successes are recognised and praised. I have been at AGS for 18 months and in that time I... have been promoted and I have watched others around me also receive promotions and awards. • There are great Employee Resource Groups, such as AGS Fit; Myself which focuses on mental health and wellbeing and Spectrum (LBGTI & Supporters). • Employees have access to private healthcare through Vitality. This comes with an excellent reward system for being fit and active, which ultimately results in free Starbucks and free cinema tickets! • Senior Leadership are visible and approachable. Senior Leadership make regular trips to our office, their visits are inspiring and they are always keen to meet new members of the team and check in everyone. There are lots of empowering female leaders.
