Good but not good

Intern (Former Employee) Long Beach, CA

ProsAES Alamitos has a good property and good positions to work in. You get to enjoy the california warmth during the winter and a reliable schedule to follow. also a plethora of coffee machines are available to employees

Consthere is an ungodly amount of drama and stuff that happens between the employees. and during the summer you'll be sweating your balls off in your FR suit. Also as an engineering intern, they made us paint a lot and didn't allow us to do a lot of stuff with the engineers and upon doing inspections there is a lot of stuff that had VERY old maintenance tags on it.

Advice to Senior Managementmanagement does it's job well, and no advice is to be given other than to put effort into making sure maintenance on the power units and systems are kept up to standards and working conditions

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Going down hill

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Arlington, VA

    I worked at AES Corporation full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: Entrepreneurial culture Company mission Interesting emerging markets development work Pretty fluid and laid back… Cons: Lack of accountability for managers, hence, poor management in many departments Extremely political. A lot of power jockeying, especially given power vacuums due to frequent reorgs.… Advice to Senior Management: Retain some change management consultants to help deal with the reorganization process. Company morale could be saved if change was transparent and communicated… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
