Good People, predominantly Software Development
SharePoint Analyst (Current Employee) – Reston, VA – March 4, 2018
AIS is a growing software development company with very good people, and they also try very hard to encourage communication and feedback among the employees. Management is generally humble and willing to listen to employees.
Over the past few years, AIS has heavily embraced Microsoft Azure development, and has won national awards for solutions they have provided. This is noted, but not overly emphasized, reinforcing the down to earth feel of the corporate culture.
As most of the work is contract work, the typical day is dictated by the environment of the client, which is where most employees will work. Project and program managers make a point of sponsoring team specific employee events so that the teams under their management can get to know each other.
The culture of AIS fosters communication, openness and collaboration. One aspect that I personally found empowering was the ability to chat with senior management, and receive thoughtful response. For the most part, they were accessible to employees, and willing to communicate. Monthly company All Hands conference calls are held, and minutes and transcripts are made available within 24 hours of the call.
The one area where AIS could improve is communication regarding employee career advancement. AIS works with the employee for skill and career development, but needs to be more timely in feedback to the employee regarding career goals and skills progress.
