Compliance Specialist (Current Employee) – Department of Defense – July 6, 2018
As a contractor for the government it appears that Engility just seems to hire employees to fill seats. Only gives 10 days a year for PTO and no sick leave. Not flexable with hours and tthe company does not for make up time. Not very impessed with company as a whole.
I am not physically located at the company and I don't see management that often. That said, I have not had much problem getting in touch with them or them with me. My workday is always very busy. I get pleasure from seeing junior analysts performing their jobs with commitment to our mission and knowing that I had a part in preparing them to do their job. I further enjoy fulfilling my responsibilities, realizing the importance of our mission.
Growing company focused on core engineering solutions for customers
Senior Logistician (Former Employee) – Orange Park, FL – June 1, 2018
Engility continues to grow and provide strong solutions across the spectrum of government and civil support activities. My project provided three good years of engaged service to the Naval Aviation Enterprise and I had no doubt that my efforts were appreciated by corporate and customer leadership.
The opportunity afforded necessary work/life balance and encouraged me to seek out professional and personal growth opportunities. The organization supported my Navy Reserve career and provided training that would parallel both careers.
Strong education benefits, excellent healthcare and 401K options
Struggle for follow-on work beyond initial contract
Program Cost Control Analyst III (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – May 24, 2018
This was my very first government contracting employer. Considering I had very little experience in this industry, I must admit that I learned a lot about the industry working with Engility for 7 years.
Too large-company that does not spend enough time on its employees
Consultant & Project Lead (Former Employee) – Arlington, VA – April 30, 2018
This company formed by buying several different practices and lumping together a large consulting corporation with no culture, and one that does not treat its individual employees all that well. The performance review process they put in place is terrible, pay is non competitive and the career options are almost nonexistant once you are on a contract - you stay there. They did however move to pay for PMP bootcamp which was nice, but to no other end in itself. Happy to move on.
IT Project Manager (Former Employee) – Remote - Work From Home – April 25, 2018
Worked remote from home so did not get a full exposure to the culture and amenities. My co-workers were professional and easy to work with. Company went through several mergers and transitions in a short time which made things challenging.
Corporate needs to do a better job connecting with offsite contractors
Systems Engineer, Sr. Staff (Current Employee) – Springfield, VA – April 9, 2018
Since the offsite contractors represent a vital part of the company's bottom line, more effort should be made to address the concerns that they face while working in the presence of the customer. The offsite contractors are ambassadors of the Engility corporate brand and those that are successful at performing in that environment on a daily basis should be recognized.
