I worked at AEI full-time

Pros

Good vacation time, management leaves you alone most of the time to do your work

Cons

Dysfunctional company with 1960s mentality. Still use typewriters and word perfect. Only recently bought a scanner for one of their employees. Top two managers are in competition with each other to run the company, and all innovative ideas get quickly squashed by arrogance. Company is moving backwards, not forwards. Extremely dry sponge in need of any drop of water.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

not even worth it, they won't listen anyway.

    I worked at AEI as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great people, great opportunities. AEI is an excellent place for policy, economics, and some social interests. Of all the think tanks in DC, it's the least political and dorky.

    Cons

    Low comp. There's no reason to work here just for the pay. Pay will be extremely low, but you wouldn't take this job for that. It's to meet great people and work on ideas that make a difference.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep up the great work

    There are hundreds of think tanks, but AEI has few true peers.

    I worked at AEI as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Best internship program among DC think tanks. Myriad networking opportunities and access to infinite educational resources. Frequent speakers and events. Even for interns, opportunities to contribute substantial research.

    Cons

    Will close some doors with groups aligned with opposing ideologies, but for most people who would go work for AEI in the first place, this likely is insignificant.
