It’s why we’re so careful in our hiring process. It’s also why we try to make sure the working environment at AE is second to none. We don’t want employees to live here, but we do want them to enjoy their time while here. We’ve noticed people tend to do their best work when they’re having fun, and we only want the best work. From comfortable work spaces, an employee-only gym, café and a plethora of on-the-house beverage options — the perks are practically endless as a team member at Advisors Excel.
Work hard. Play hard.
Our employees work hard — really hard — during the work day. But when the work is done, we expect them to set it aside and focus on the other things in life. We encourage good work/life balance and try to provide ample opportunities for that to be the case.
Part of becoming successful at AE is understanding you’re never done learning. Whether it’s keeping up with the industry, learning new technologies, amping up on time management or organization skills or focusing on personal development, we’ve got employees covered!
Staying in the know:
At AE, employees never fall asleep in staff meetings. That’s because our monthly, all-employee meeting is much more than a time to get updates on company initiatives and upcoming events. Quickly becoming a legend across corporate Topeka, AE’s staff meetings will get you pumped and ready to attack the day!
From complimentary freshly ground coffee, pop, tea and cappuccinos, there’s no lack of creative fuel here. The Snack Shack is an excellent stop if you need a breakfast muffin or an afternoon snack, and employees also have access to an on-site subsidized meal option at the AE Café, which serves salads, sandwiches, wraps and more!
AE employees can ditch the monthly gym membership fees. Our employee-only fitness center (located in the building) features 12 exercise machines, including treadmills, ellipticals and bikes, along with other workout equipment. Our health and wellness coordinator holds daily boot camps and the occasional fitness challenge, tapping into our competitive sides. Showers are also available — because while a dedication to fitness is commendable, the stench from a workout is not!
Keeping it FUNC-y:
We believe fostering stronger relationships among our employees makes us a stronger company, so we frequently host a number of fun events throughout the year to allow employees time to let loose and socialize with one another. Employees regularly enjoy extracurricular activities planned by our “fun committee” (aka “The FUNC”), including the AE-Mazing Race and annual company-wide flag football, volleyball, basketball and softball games. We also have tailgate parties, Christmas parties and tons of kid-friendly activities such as an Easter egg hunt, a fall family festival, visits from Santa and much more!
Business can’t be all work and no play, right?
Since our founding in 2005, we’ve worked hard to build a successful company, and we’re pretty proud of the environment and camaraderie we’ve crafted here. There’s a reason why we’ve gained a reputation in Topeka as being one of the most exciting companies to work for — seven reasons, to be exact.
