Pros

The breadth and depth of the knowledge of international projects that AED employees work on is incredible. They are in over 80 countries around the globe and have wonderful opportunities to participate in these programs.

Cons

Usually when you get hired, they low-ball your offer. You can talk them up however. They also offer full benefits, but watch out for the medical plan that the doctors you want to see are covered. Many of the popular doctors under the larger health plans in DC are NOT in the health plan they offer. Also watch out if you're a short timer -- retirement doesn't kick in until one year on the job.

Advice to Management

Truth in advertising -- please don't say one thing, yet do another. It's a bit disingenuous.

    Pros

    Smart, motivated people who knew what they were doing. There was a buzz and excitement working there.

    Cons

    A reluctance to break out of silos. A shame that AED became the poster child for accountability and that the toll was so high.
