    I have been working at AEP full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are great.

    The company truly dedicated to maintaining and improving its culture, and it goes beyond talk. I have witnessed firsthand from VPs on down a culture committed to safety, one another, and its customers.

    Flexible schedules and vacation/time off adds up quickly.

    There are a lot of very experienced employees and the Company is working hard to retain knowledge from these employees before they retire. The opportunities abound for young employees that are willing to work hard and listen.

    Cons

    Upward mobility sometimes requires lateral moves to find a department that has room to grow, so you can't just be content doing what you do and staying put.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work with newer employees and offer pipelines for growth and development as the company workforce ages toward retirement.

    I have been working at AEP full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Honestly, you'd think working for one a conglomerate you despise would come with some perks i.e (Verizon), but that is far from true. You're working for a horrible company, and you will hate your life as well.

    Cons

    Management, co-workers, pay, benefits, everything is pretty poor and only getting worse.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how to actually manage guys, a lot of companies are doing it, quit relying on having a monopoly in the area; some day that may all come to an end and you will all be searching for a new job.

    I have been working at AEP full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Big company, lots of lateral positions to move around in, comparable pay

    Cons

    For profit so can be cheap with its employees. Policies not flexible for taking kids to doctors. At times other departments act as separate companies and information is hard to get

    Advice to Management

    Need more flexible policies for office people. Keep working on diversity in workplace.

    Pros

    Overall a great place to work. The guys there are top notch, and I truly enjoyed my time there. I would recommend this company to anyone.

    Cons

    There isnt that much opportunity for advancement due to the fact that no one leaves until retirement. The position that you get hired on for is where you will be until someone "ages out".
