    Pros

    Great benefits. Great Pay. Great work culture. Learn a lot quickly. They take care of their engineers.

    Cons

    If you do your job well, be prepared to have to compensate for those who do not. They overwork the good employees and let the duds bottom feed.

    Advice to Management

    Get everyone to do their part or get rid of those who don't. Sleeping, video games, and personal calls all day is overboard.

    Pros

    Ameren is very flexible and pays very well. Your supervisors actually care about your well-being. I'd recommend working for this company to anyone.

    Cons

    They are stuck in their old manpower ways. They need to be more open to change.

    Pros

    They give you meaningful work to complete. The pay was great. They gave me paid holidays. All of my coworkers were completely willing to teach me what I needed to know. My coworkers were also very welcoming. The company works you hard, which i like.

    Cons

    I have no real cons. You should just expect to work. They are sort of strict about showing up on time, and working the full 40 hours.

    Advice to Management

    I had no issues with upper management. They were all cool dudes and dudettes.

    Pros

    Great upper and middle management. Very personal for being such a large company, very impressed they remembered the interns name on a first name basis. treated well, pay is amazing for being in college, one on one job training, very personal staff, work with a small group, given responsiblities to manage, very trusting, fun place to learn, exciting places to work at such as power plants and special events throughout Saint Louis.

    Cons

    Nothing really, wish there were more college aged students in the department to relate with. Most of the people working in the communications department have been there a while and are in their 30's-40's

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! Do everything you can to make people feel included!
