    AES Values which have been its driving principles from the start are now just words proudly displayed on pretty posters.

    I have been working at AES Corporation full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Competent people. The people in the businesses work together as a team and genuinely care for one another.

    Cons

    The Corporate Office (especially accounting) consistently pushes down edicts that make no sense in the field. Timelines are set for initiatives and 75% of the time is taken by Corporate to make a decision (which often ends up being the wrong decision) and then the businesses are stuck trying to implemnet a process with little resources, insufficient time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management needs to read the AES Values again and remember to Honor its Commitment to its employees and quit hiring and firing people in constant organization change to give the analysts the appearance of improvement.. Go back to the days of transparency and open communication. These are not ways to be top quartile in places to work in the US.

    AES great for career development, but poor for organizational culture and leadership.

    I have been working at AES Corporation

    Pros

    Strong emphasis on safety and values. Compensation good.

    Cons

    In spite of emphasis on values, subcultures are poor. Contributions aren't valued unless you are politically connected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dive deeper into the organization, be honest and open with employees, understand your subcultures.
