Through the eyes of a new team member: Agon Management Group

A new employee of Agon Management Group reviews her experience with our McLean-based firm.

It’s estimated that an average person will spend 21% of their waking hours at work in their lifetime – so you might as well enjoy it right? Agon Management Group couldn’t agree more! So what is like in our office? As you’d expect, you will see employees walking into the professional office building in their suits, ties and heels… but what you might NOT expect is hearing the music playing, lots of laughter and a team truly enjoying themselves.

Claudia, a recent addition to the Agon Management Group team (and pictured on the far right in the image above), says the people are what makes work not seem like work to her. Her job is enjoyable, but being able to work with a team who is just as motivated as you and excited to be there makes a huge impact on the overall vibe and attitude of the office. Everyone has their own reasons that they are working hard towards their goals, but the most important factor is that they all have something that they are working for and towards. But it’s not all hard work… “The team always knows how to make each other laugh, being silly and having fun. At the same time, they are great examples of how to stay balanced between striving for greatness and having fun, explained Claudia.

In any company, there is a trickle-down effect. Good and Bad. At Agon Management Group, the positive and contagious energy starts with the president, Tarek. Some values that he exemplifies are integrity and having a positive attitude – which is apparent through employees’ actions. “I truly enjoy working with this great group of people and trust every one of them,” Claudia explained. “It’s great working for someone who is so enjoyable to be around and has such a positive aura that the rest of the team vibes off of.”

Agon Management Group also believes that creating relationships with coworkers outside of the office will stimulate a more cohesive working environment inside the office in return. One of Claudia’s favorite events outside of the office (so far) has been going out dancing with the team in DC! She described the benefit of doing things with the team outside of work this way: “It is very important because you get to know the people you work with on another level. That experience and bonding is priceless.”
