    I worked at Ameren

    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.

    I worked at Ameren as an intern (less than a year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Ameren as an intern (less than a year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Ameren full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    -Outstanding benefits and salary package
    -New fitness center on-site--membership fees are negligible
    -Decent cafeteria
    -Flexible work hours (can start anywhere between 6am and 9am)
    -Very friendly people and a great working environment
    -Committed to diversity
    -Lots of opportunity within the company
    -Very good work/life balance

    Cons

    -Like any big company, change can be slow and can be resisted, but leadership is making a huge effort to change the "this is the way we've always done it" mentality
    -The software programs the company uses are extremely archaic and disorganized, which is frustrating and hurts productivity. They really need to modernize the way they do things (i.e., having digital files instead of paper files), but I think they're working on it.
