    I worked at Prime AE Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Supervisors are very nice, personable, and understanding of employees. Other employees are friendly.

    Cons

    Upper management doesn't care about you, only results and don't like when you care more about your health than your work.

    Advice to Management

    Be more knowledgeable about how ground conversion work is done and how long it actually takes. And make sure the employees have machines that work.

    I have been working at Prime AE Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a job - that is all there is to the 'pros' of this company.

    Cons

    You are a number, nothing more. The company is top heavy in management and those people do not care about the people working under them. I have seen this company go down instead of UP because of this. Do not expect to be appreciated or thanked for anything you do. Do not expect a pay raise either, even though upper management is clearly doing well. The benefits are lacking, particularly in medical insurance (cost is ridiculously high) and the 401k match. They do not honor the education reimbursement either. I have never seen such a high turnover of employees before I worked for this company. To say it's a revolving door is an understatement.

    Advice to Management

    You are top heavy and will eventually fall. Start appreciating your employees before you lose your good talent (what little is left). Take time to say HI to people.

    I worked at Prime AE Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay was pretty decent for my position and my area--it wants me to add more words, but that's pretty much all I can say

    Cons

    Office management absolutely the most unprofessional I have ever dealt with. On salary, expected to work well over 40 hours without any compensation of any sort. Doesn't care about family life as long as projects get out the door.

    Advice to Management

    As a corporate company, spend time in all offices so that you can see what really goes on

    I worked at Prime AE Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most of the staff are enjoyable to work with.

    Cons

    They are stuck in the middle. They are trying to hang with the big guys, but can't pull in and keep good talent. Because of that, you feel like you are being babysat, since they don't trust employees. Since it is small, you get the sense they only care about the bottom line and not you. They will submit you to jobs without talking with you. It really just feels like staff augmentation a lot of the times. They only care about you if your billable and blame you when they don't get sales. The upper mgmt. has the typical India/Sri Lanka mentality and if you speak out your shut down immediately. You will never get raises, promotions, or bonuses which constantly change unless your part of the family.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up. This isn't India/Sri Lanka and treat your staff as a team and not a paycheck.

    Pros

    For the most part this is a good company with good management. They have the potential to grow and grow and grow... if they wise up a little. Excellent product for the market, it's a fairly recession-proof industry.

    Cons

    They have a typical Sri Lankan mentality - white folk can't possibly do the job well so they micromanage them. Not a lot of money to be made right now, raises and bonuses are non existent. If they can get it right and grow, it's possible some of that money might trickle down.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that you hired us for a reason - because we know how to do the job. Give us raises even if they're menial. We need some encouragement that we are wanted here.

    Pros

    Good place to work if you are unemployed. Use as a launching pad to get another job.

    Cons

    Very unprofessional firm. I'm surprised they don't having any lawsuits pending. Not somewhere you can stay very long. Witnessed and was asked to participate in unethical behavior on multiple occasions.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in some good lawyers.

    Pros

    Growing company; lots of opportunities to learn and grow. Management makes the effort to coach and thank their teams. Diverse in their offerings so one can learn many things.

    Cons

    Absolutely none. I love going to work every day.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.
