AESI provides contract, contract-to-direct, and direct placement services to our clients and candidates.

Contractors may work with AESI in two different ways: as a W-2 employee of AESI, or in a corp-to-corp relationship. The candidate becomes a W-2 employee of our client in a direct or permanent placement and may be eligible to receive the employee benefits that AESI offers including Medical, Dental, and Vision Insurance, direct deposit, and 401(k).

A corp-to-corp relationship is literally between two corporations. The contractor must have formed a corporation and be an employee of that corporation in order to enter into a corp-to-corp relationship with AESI.

AESI traditionally does not work with 1099 workers, also known as “independent contractors”. We prefer to have contractors become a W-2 employee to build stronger teams that benefit the contractor, the client, and AESI.

For some, the thought of living on the “wild side,” in other words “contracting,” is a bit frightening. Others cannot bear the thought of signing on the dotted line with an employer.

Here is a brief look at the advantages of contract vs direct employment:


  • Opportunity to choose the technologies you want to work with and then move on to something new at the end of the contract.
  • Ability to work a contract, take a few months off, then begin the next contract.
  • As a W-2 employee of AESI, you will have access to medical, dental, and vision insurance, direct deposit, and the opportunity to participate in the 401(k) plan.
  • As a corp-to-corp contractor with AESI, you may be able write-off many of your business expenses, through your business tax filing, including the purchase of the tools you want to use.

Direct Placement

  • More stability.
  • Employer will usually support career/technology development training.
  • Full line of benefits including, in some cases, stock options, 401(k) matching and bonuses.
  • A sense of belonging. Contractors may feel less a part of the team
