    I worked at AEC full-time

    Pros

    Very casual environment, flexible hours/schedules, and the staff/management is very community & family oriented. You *really* have to screw up or be completely useless to get fired.

    Cons

    If you're a Christian, then the Mission Statement is probably a breath of fresh air. If not, well, be prepared to deal with potentially uncomfortable situations like praying at potlucks, etc. AEC is very comfortable with "what" they are. They pay low because many of the employees want to stay in Sandy, so for the cost of living out there it's not a bad-paying gig. Portlanders? Forget it. You'll be paid $7-12 dollars less an hour for a comparable job in the metro area. The company is also very content with the size they are and has no desire whatsoever to grow. They have a great reputation in the industry but do not build on their current clientele. They are very risk-averse.

    Advice to Management

    None really- AEC is what it is. I think as long as new hires are aware of what their potential growth will or will not be then they can continue with the status-quo.

    Pros

    Management is not tightfisted, they know how to make a good working environment. Great open atmosphere and comfortable working environment. Casual dress code.

    Cons

    Pay is slightly less than at a mega corporation for the same work, but the work is of larger responsibility and the bonus program is great.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, everyone loves this place!
