If VP is your buddy and you enjoy bureaucratic top-down only management, this is the place for you!

Field Engineering Representative (Former Employee)

I worked at Ameren full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGood pay in some areas for work performed. Benefits are better than many newer companies but are under pressure. Many types of jobs are available all over state.

ConsWhere to begin? It would be hard to imagine how a company management could drive employee morale much father down. Since Ameren swallowed up the moderately well run utility company I worked for in Illinois, it has been one bad decision after another. Annual employee surveys consistently give horrible ratings to upper management year after year yet no changes. Need new board & management.

Advice to Senior ManagementChange the culture 180 degrees. Stop the "bad news gets buried". Eliminate layers and layers of bureaucrats. Require managers to directly ask first line employees what would help them be more efficient Get rid of stone-age software that actually slows down work. Fire the top half of the management if necessary.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
