Former Employee - Director  in  O'Fallon, MO
Former Employee - Director in O'Fallon, MO

Pros

Usually most of the peers are nice and friendly and base compensation is fair. Not much advancement opportunities, flat organization.

Cons

Bonuses and politics suck, like most places. Feels like High School in that some people are snakes and try and get ahead, it works for some. Direction is not clear and consistent to the day-to-day managers

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Clean house! Get some turnover and bring in fresh blood each year (external hires). The world is advancing much faster than AW and you need to branch out beyond public utilities.
