    Pros

    Phenomenal CEO! AST has a Clear & Honest Vision for the Company which they openly share and work towards. There is an abundance of Loyalty within AST, from Employees to their Practices and from the Executives/Leadership Team to their Employees.

    Extremely intellectual Executive VP/CFO. You can always count on the COO to give you a clear honest answer and a marching order when needed. The Sr. VP of Sales is Truly Impressive. The Director of Marketing is the epitome of a knowledgeable, talented, and fair director. Many of the VP’s truly own their Practices and work diligently to grow them.

    AST is a shining example of Richard Branson's quote "Train people well enough so they can leave, treat them well enough so they don't want to".

    Cons

    Naperville Office is Filling Up Due to Growth!

    Advice to Management

    Don't Change... 21 Years of Success and/or Growth! Keep it Up!

    Pros

    AST is a successful, growing company, but it continues to have a supportive, "family" atmosphere. Often, growing companies quickly adapt a "big business" or "strictly corporate" personality. This is certainly not the case with AST. Since day one, I have felt welcome and appreciated, and every one of my coworkers is helpful and provides guidance as I face challenges that advance my skills and career. AST retains the "it's all about our people" mindset. While growing the business is important, the President himself says that supporting his team of employees, and having fun while working, is critical to our success. AST provides an incredible work-life balance. In my role, I am challenged (in a positive way) to exceed goals that I set for myself and for the company. AST has a great team atmosphere, in which everyone fills in wherever needed to meet a deadline or complete a task. No one is ever "above" doing a job. The executive leadership is incredibly personable and easy to work with, while also pushing their team members to grow and learn. They are not just name plates on doors that are always closed, but smiling faces that ask you how things are going and always have an open-door policy. I truly feel that working for AST is not just another 'job', but a worthwhile, rewarding lifetime career.

    Cons

    In my opinion, there really are no "cons" to working for this Company. I have some days that are more challenging and stressful than others, but not many, and when they do come around, it isn't a bad thing; It's an opportunity for growth and learning.

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what you're doing. You are running a successful corporation with satisfied employees who have fun and get the job done.
