    I worked at AEP full-time (more than 8 years)


    AEP is a huge company that offers a variety of positions for people of many backgrounds. Successful employees tend to work a few years in one role, and then transfer internally to learn a new area. I enjoyed AEP's way of communicating with the employees, and I always felt I understood the company's strategy. AEP is generous with maternity leave, military leave and many benefits.


    Maybe it is typical of a large organization, but there are many HR rules about pay grades, raises and promotions that limit management's ability to reward top performers. Therefore, it sometimes feels like the best way to "catch up" is to apply for another job -- internally or externally.
