Cramped Location. Broken promisses
Pros: new forwarder to the international market. (opened worldwide 2007)
Cons: small operational office for the number of people, has a "clique-ish” attitude among workers that interferes with work flow, lots of “pass the buck” work going on, promotions within the company non-existent, you may be trained for a position only to realize you have been demoted to the lowest position
Agility will make a promise on a position you are hired for. Then like clockwork, they will change business model and change the organization on the branch level so you will be reassigned a new position lower than what you were hired for. The reason for this is they like to hire ONLY managers from other forwarders that they can steal away. They promise promotions, and better pay, and then they will shake up the branch operations, so that the new hires, managers from other places, become grunt workers. Within their company on the branch level, they do not like to use the titles MANAGER, SUPERVISOR, or the like. This keeps them from being held to a conventional organizational chart and from getting sued. Jobs descriptions are kept in a grey area and it is known that the night shifts are the ones doing all the work, while those who work during the day are friends who are planning their private lives. If you end up on the night shift, then you are not part of the “clique”, and can be expected to be treated like a less of an employee. In 2007-2008, the parent company (PWC) in Kuwait was under fire from allegations of using “detained” workers from the Philippines in the Kuwait main HQ Hub. To be fair at the time, it seemed unlikely, but in hind sight being 20/20, well, maybe… The office facilities are poorly laid out, so to cater to those who want to sit near each other while isolating other who are not part of the office "clique"
