    I have been working at AE Business Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Working at AE allows me to be challenged and learn new things on a daily basis. Everyone is friendly and willing to help each other when needed. The customer always comes first while offering a family focused work environment.

    Cons

    The office has an open layout which makes the noise level a challenge at times and there could be more conference rooms.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at AE Business Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    AE Business is made up of a group of solid individuals. There is a level of genuine humanity you will not find at most companies. The work atmosphere is laid back, however they are results driven. AEBS puts the customer's first, operates with integrity, and knows how to have fun.

    Cons

    Benefits packages. The benefits did improve during my tenure. In their defense benefits can be a trade off, big corporate vs. smaller company.

    Advice to Management

    I think management is taking all of the necessary steps to foster a positive culture, exploring ways to stay relevant, and having a good time along the way. Keep it up.

    I worked at AE Business Solutions full-time

    Pros

    The job itself is excellent. Best technical consulting agency in the area, by far.

    Cons

    Definitely an old-school boys-club. Saw other experience (and experienced myself) blatant racism, homophobia, trans-phobia, and sexism. As a minority, I was not comfortable working there.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at AE Business Solutions as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    None --- no reason to ever work here. Learned about AEBS practices through my time with them ... enough to ban them from opportunities .. I am now an IT Director.

    Cons

    Management promised many things during recruiting but they were just a pack of lies. Arrogant management that did not care about employees once they got them on board. They are struggling to build up a practice in business intelligence and other areas, but fail to realize that this is impossible without having skilled people. The longer term consultants are untalented and egotistical.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying during the recruiting process

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at AE Business Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Small company with a solid history of success. Pay is competitive. Long-term employment, if you are one of the "good ol' boys."

    Cons

    They are a third-tier re-seller with minor staffing arm. No room for advancement. Horrible benefit package. Diversity? Yeah, right.

    Advice to Management

    Get a new owner. He has lived in Madison too long and does not know how the outside world operates.

    I worked at AE Business Solutions full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Competitive salaries and opportunity for advancement.
    Decent (but not fantastic) benefits including paid time off (sick,vac), training, health/vision/dental and 401k

    Direct access to decision makers who are open to new ideas.

    Definitely opportunities to learn a lot of new technologies for those who want to learn more.

    Cons

    Limited opportunity to advance as it's a relatively small company with a flat organizational structure.
    Salaries could be a bit higher to be competitive with the market.

    Advice to Management

    Beef up your 401k match a bit.

    Pros

    The only pro is you get paid on time, and the check doesn't bounce.

    Cons

    Management is horrible. No consideration for consultants which bring them their income. You're a number or a piece of meat. Benefit plan is the worse on the planet.

    Advice to Management

    Work FOR your consultants they pay your salaries.
    Get some benefits for your employees
