    I worked at AEP full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Job stability. Decent pay. Average benefits.

    Cons

    Boring. AEP is a monopoly and therefore has no incentive to be more efficient or to challenge employees. They try, but the business model doesn't support it so nobody really buys in. The employees that stay there for 35 years do so because they love the stability and don't mind being bored. The employees that are driven and embrace continuous improvement leave. AEP could shed 1000's of jobs with no impact. They do not ride lean, they ride heavy. You will be bored.

    Advice to Management

    It doesn't matter because 90% of them love the status quo. Collect lots of money in their monopoly and live happily ever after.

    I worked at AEP full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay and annual bonus. Several of the supervisors are great but upper management is horrible

    Cons

    Upper management is from up north and they may have done well there but this is totally different terrain and the same things don’t work here that worked there

    Advice to Management

    Spend some time doing what you’re telling others to do and see how that works
