Living Our Values

Love the Problem Aegis Value

Love the Problem

Jason Carter

President and Founder

“Our passion is to marry the work our clients need done with the talents and interests of our people.  When our people are being paid to solve problems they love solving, everyone wins.”

Cultivate Beauty

Lori Waggoner

Vice President and Director of Corporate Services

“Beauty is sometimes created by bringing into existence something entirely new that didn’t exist before, but more often beauty is exposed when we shine a light in dark places. It is imposed when we tame chaos into order. Or it is discovered as we brush away layers of grime that have masked it.”

Celebrate Uncommon Genius

Jim Phelps

Vice President for Operations and the Director for Data & Analytic Solutions

“We take time to learn what makes our colleagues tick, we are interested in their hobbies and in those that take the road less travelled. We love to harness those unique characteristics to help our teams think out of the box, to imagine, and to experiment.”

Be more... do more value

Be More... Do More

Nick Powers

Vice President and Director of Enterprise Technology Solutions

“Respect must be earned. This requires a commitment to doing everything well. Work harder. Dress sharper. Win.”

Prioritize People Value

Prioritize People

Jason Carter

President and Founder

“We don’t put our logo on the bottom of a monitor, on the tail of an airplane, or on a network router; but only on the breast pockets of our consultants. When we prioritize our people, we are prioritizing our brand.”

Love the Problem Aegis Value

Love the Problem

Lori Waggoner

Vice President and Director of Corporate Services

“My preferred way to love a problem is to ask question after question after question to expose assumptions, trite answers, and faulty logic. This clears the way for critical thinking and allows fresh ideas to rise.”

Be more... do more value

Be More... Do More

Jim Phelps

Vice President for Operations and the Director for Data & Analytic Solutions

“We squint with our ears… we schedule quiet time to think critically… we explore options and prompt creativity… we are polite and considerate… and we are pathfinders. We take great pride in refining processes, creating new products, and building teams. These actions generate trust and promote confidence.”

Cultivate Beauty

Nick Powers

Vice President and Director of Enterprise Technology Solutions

“We are not satisfied with the world we live in today. It is on us to do whatever we can to make it better.”
