Employee Stories

The following are a few stories of how our employees exemplify the AIS value, Be Transparent.

Erin Bushinger


When Erin Bushinger began her career at AIS, a department dedicated to communications and marketing did not yet exist at the company. Over her time here, the Corporate Communications Department has grown into a team of six who work diligently to develop both internal and external communications initiatives.

“When I started in 2017, I knew it was going to be an extremely rewarding adventure,” said Erin. “Building a department from scratch was an exciting task and it’s been an honor to help shape the way in which our company communicates internally, while working to enhance and define the AIS brand. Our department functions like an in-house agency; from public relations and advertising to internal communications and design, we are always working to support employees with their projects and goals. A major focus we’ve had is to increase communication across the company to ensure employees are aware of corporate information, changes, news and other important updates. Over our time here, we’ve launched a biweekly email newsletter, a biannual company magazine, an all-new website and intranet, digital signage displays and more. I’m excited to continue to develop new strategies and launch projects that all contribute to a more collaborative and transparent culture.”

Brandon Haines


In 2017, AIS engineers formed the Tech Council to help foster communication and collaboration among the multiple engineering groups at our company. Brandon Haines is currently leading the council, which is focused on initiatives pertaining to technical information flows, research integrity, product quality and cultivating an enjoyable work experience at AIS.

“As we continue to grow, the organic communication that enabled our initial transparency and success as a small company must also grow to meet our current and future needs,” said Brandon. “With so much growth and diversification of technical skills, the Tech Council is the engineering staff’s solution to the active management of our collaboration. The Tech Council also allows us to share lessons learned and brainstorm solutions to other challenges that may impact our ability to deliver research and engineering excellence. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to rapidly shift our practices in unforeseen ways. The Tech Council has been a key collaboration channel for maintaining effective operations through the challenges of a largely distributed workforce. From collaboration tools and onboarding, to technical mentorship and cross-group solutions, the Tech Council helps increase transparency at AIS, ultimately driving the success and alliance of our engineers.”
