I have been working at AEP

Pros

I had a hard time in college deciding what I wanted to do with my life. I am a Purdue grad and I learned about AEP at the Engineering Round Table in 2005. I knew I wanted to do a rotational program and what could be better than working at a nuclear power plant? AEP let me hit the ground running and shape my own career. I was hired in with a group of engineers that became my best friends. My bosses are great listeners and instructors and every day on the job I learn something new. I don't feel restricted in my growth and I know this is a very stable company.

Cons

I don't always love when there are issues in the plant and it causes us to operate differently. Outages are good money but very tiring.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

My feedback would be that they are doing a great job in this unstable market.

    I have been working at AEP

    Pros

    I really enjoy the opportunities that I have been given as a result of working here. The pay and benefits are nothing to complain about, either. I feel that there is no glass ceiling for me and I can do anything I would want to do. I have made some life long friendships and respect the management. Its not so bad working so close to the beach, either.

    Cons

    I would say that outages are the only downsides of working at AEP, but. hey, at least the overtime makes up for all of the negatives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would say we need to also get into more alternative forms of energy.
