Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Columbus, OH

I have been working at AEP full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

1) Great people to work with
2) Lots of opportunities to learn
3) Plenty of chances move around the company and try new things

Cons

1) Lower than average wages
2) Dwindling benefits
3) You will ALWAYS take a back seat to the stockholders
4) Upper management will ALWAYS make Wall Street and their view point their primary concern
5) If you are looking for company loyalty look somewhere else
6) 1980's Management style "This is how we did it when I got here (in 82) and that how we do it now" and so on.......

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I realize that a majority of your annual compensation comes from your stock options which causes you to focus on short-term earnings. However for the good of the company please try to think a little further ahead than the next two to three years. If you hope to retain employees like myself who are still very young and very mobile you need to show us that the company will actually be around in 10 years. However from what I have seen senior management is only concerned with short-term earnings and you could care less about your staff young or old. If things don't change those who can are leaving and you can run this sinking ship into the iceberg by yourselves!

    Pros

    Decent Perks Excellent Benefits, Great Location @ HQ and Cheap Parking. Senior coworkers often encouraged to train and mentor younger staff which was good. Job training options always open to employees.

    Cons

    Slow growth not able to move around the company in IT. Not all jobs support telecommuting. No clear path to develop and move up in the company and grow or get into management.
