who we are
"all work and no play makes for a dull engineer"
At Solutions we work to ensure our clients are satisfied on every project we deliver. We also abide by the "all work and no play makes for a dull engineer" belief. Our benefits extend beyond just health insurance and 401(k). All fulltime employees also receive a four week "sabbatical" in addition to their vacation time after every five years of employment. Browse below for more details on our fun and unusual approach to enjoying working together.
OUR CORE VALUES
Some might say that the platitudinous contemplation and discussion of core values does not merit the time that other areas of organizational leadership require. At Solutions AEC, we disagree. Our core values are something that we place great emphasis, and effort in exhibiting throughout our organization in all our interactions. Please join us in raising up the following values and try and model them for yourselves and those around you too. We try everyday to bring the core values off the wall and into our lives.
Work Ethic • Honesty • Passion • Stewardship • Servant Leadership
WE ARE INNOVATORS
Our industry is rapidly changing, keeping up with these exciting times we live in. We see Ai starting to emerge in all aspects of the built environment, and SAEC intends to stay at the forefront of this wave! Solutions AEC employs not only talented professionals, but visionary individuals who take the initiative to improve our processes through automation and innovation, and not only our internal processes, but also industry processes. We are never satisfied with the status quo and continuously challenge the efficiency in all things we do.
Our Ai initiative empowers each and every one of our employees to participate and lead in our efforts and be rewarded for those results. Our folks have the freedom to be creative. We understand Ai is an investment in our organization's future success and nothing excites us more than seeing everyone pulling on the same side of the rope.
WE HAVE FUN
At Solutions we work to ensure our clients are satisfied on every project we deliver. We also abide by the "all work and no play makes for a dull engineer" belief. Therefore, we strive to reward our hard-working staff with opportunities to put work on the back-burner. Making work enjoyable is key to keeping our folks fresh and energized. Our SAEC family extends far beyond our employees in the office and this is why we invite family members of our employees to join in on the fun too! For those of you who are lucky enough to share a roof with one of our employees, you've likely enjoyed some of the events we have participated in below!
Waffle Wednesdays • Family Winery Trips • Friday Fun Days • Monthly Birthday Lunches • Community Service Days • Valentines Dinner • March Madness Party • Chili Cook-Off • Golf Outings • Double-Blind Frozen Custard Taste-Offs • Scavenger Hunts • Camping Trips • Sporting Events • Bachelor Parties/Hunger Games Style Bow and Arrow Wars • Bridal Showers/Homemade TP Wedding Dress Fashion Shows
THE PEOPLE PROCESS
At Solutions AEC, we understand our most valuable asset is our people. We preach TEAM in everything we do, whether its TEAMing with our client partners or TEAMing with good people within the walls of our office. This is why we continually try to find ways to invest in our team members’ mind, body, and spirit. If you have ever returned to work from a long vacation to find your workspace in shambles, chances are you have experienced Solutions AEC's month-long paid sabbatical program! Yes, you read that right! One of the many unique perks we offer our employees is a four week "turn off your phone and go away" paid sabbatical to allow you to step away from the grind and refresh your batteries every five years. We want you to write that book you've been thinking about for years, go on that mission trip you've always wanted to do with your church, take that backpacking trip through Europe you've always been intrigued by.... Oh, and we should mention this is in addition to your normal vacation time for that year. We have had administrative professionals at other companies tell us we were crazy for offering this perk. Nope, we simply understand that our employees are our greatest asset, and we aim to invest in them. There is one string attached however... our team of professional pranksters tend to welcome you back to the office with some very creative gifts....

One of our coveted TEAM members, Kimberly Wood, just recently returned from her SECOND paid-sabbatical; only the third employee in SAEC history to achieve this milestone! She and her father took the time to travel through Europe by planes, trains, and automobiles that had the steering wheel on the wrong-side of the car. She created an on-line blog to keep friends and family posted on her worldly adventures, "The Wandering Woods", check it out!
OH...and check back in with us soon to see her return back to the office... let's just say it was some of our finest office prank work to date!
