AE2S Named to 50 Best Places to Work List

For the fourth year in a row, nominations from AE2S staff placed the civil engineering consulting firm on the Prairie Business Magazine 50 Best Places to Work list. “We’re especially proud of this award because it comes from our employee-owners’ nominations,” says Grant Meyer, AE2S CEO. “Our ‘Think Big. Go Beyond.’ motto covers everything AE2S does, from our extreme client service to our commitment to providing challenging and rewarding career opportunities for our employee-owners.”

“This is the third year since we implemented the Employee Stock Option Plan (ESOP),” says Megan Houser, AE2S CHRO. “As an ESOP, each person has an effect on the success of the firm, and I think that bolsters job satisfaction to feel like we each can make a direct impact.”

AE2S employee-owners enjoy opportunities to work on large, diverse, and challenging projects; family health insurance covered 100% by AE2S; compensation and bonuses that reward dedicated and passionate employees; and a casual work environment.
