AES Corporation – Why Work For Us?


Create an extraordinary future. 

Whether it’s bringing electricity to El Salvador for the first time, or engineering battery storage to make a clean energy future possible, AES people repower communities to raise quality of life in a fast-changing world.

Huge responsibility + intense commitment = higher reward.

Are you up for extraordinary?

Who we are

We’re a 21,000-person team committed to fueling quality of life around the world. The measure of our careers is the difference we make. To our communities, colleagues and families. We don’t just work at AES. We work for AES. We are AES. The only limit to our influence and impact is our own commitment. We care as much about how we act as what we do, at work and in life.

How we work

Energy isn’t 9 to 5, and it doesn’t stand still. A split-second event can unplug a city or upend a marketplace. So we are all in and full on. We work in small, hyper-connected teams from project to project – several at a time – bringing together people from different divisions, specialties and cultures, and embracing the differences to discover new ways forward. We don’t take short cuts and we seek to win on the right terms, not at all costs. We tap informal networks to get big things done every day, so we really know the people we work with.

What we reward

We recognize and reward contribution from anyone, anywhere. Pipe fitters recommended the way to improve all of our plants. Members of our IT team imagined our industry-leading Advancion® battery storage solution. With cross-disciplinary teams and direct access to leadership, everyone’s visible, expected to speak up and pitch in.

    I have been working at AES Corporation full-time

    Pros

    AES is a great company to grow your career. There are a number of opportunities for advancement. The company is going through an exciting time as the industry transforms.

    Cons

    As the company transforms so should policies. Employees should be able to work remotely. Also, work life balance is very challenging.

    Advice to Management

    As the company grows and transforms it's time to let go of those who won't let go of the past. There are too many leaders who are poisonous to the company's culture.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at AES Corporation (Arlington, VA).

    Interview

    I was strung out, told I was the favorite/final candidate, brought on site, told I did well. Then told I was too young (they knew my age on day 1).
