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

    Pros

    I loved working for this company. There was a lot of opportunity for movement within the company, they are really good about keeping you challenged, and the benefits are really good.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be appallingly slow to get anything done due to the nature of being a utility company. There also seems to be a bit of a disconnect between senior management and lower level staff working in production.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at AEP (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Freedom to analyze discrepancies on specific platforms developed by company.

    Cons

    Management treated you like a bus boy rather than a team member. Also there were no clearly defined rolls in contract and so that left them with all the leverage.

    Advice to Management

    Set clear terms on contracts and be willing to listen.
