    Pros

    There is a lot of opportunity for growth at AEP. The benefits are phenominal.

    Cons

    Growth can sometimes be limited in the shared services part of the company. Having worked in SS & now in one of the Operating companies I believe that the management style (in the Opco) is more geared towards developing you as a benefit to the company rather than just what you can do for your current department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The direction things have been going lately has been great. I would say that Mike needs to keep doing what he's doing. AEP has changed a lot in the last 5 years & I definitely believe it's been for the better.

    I have been working at AEP

    Pros

    AEP has so many great reasons to work there. The management and team I work with are so competent. I was afraid going into such a big company, but it has not been an issue at all. I get paid so well. The benefits are great and the career developement and safety standards are world class.

    Cons

    Sometimes management seems to only care about safety standards but I know that is necessary seeing as how we have to keep things safe in a not always so safe workign environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would re-evaluate some of the standards of safety breach disciplinary actions. Besides that, this job is better than anyone could ever ask for.
