I have been working at AEP

Pros

Good pay, benefits, with plenty of overtime if you want it. Good corporate culture overall. Promote from within at the lower levels of management.

Cons

During a recession, they get past "layoffs" by forcing early retirement, even if you don't want to retire.
In the union environment, management believes they can dictate to the union, and ignore union requests entirely.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Believe Mike Morris's advice, that you should do the right thing, because it is the right thing to do. Treat your union employees as people, not numbers.

    Pros

    AEP provides a highly professional, competitive environment. This company has a well-deserved reputation for innovation and industry leadership.

    Cons

    The salaries offered by AEP are far behind industry trends. It is a good place to start, but in order to command the sort of salaries commensurate with the rest of the industry, you will have to seek employment elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your research and development are the finest in the industry. However, you are losing good people due to low wages. You need to pay your people better.
