    I worked at AEP full-time

    Pros

    I stayed with American Electric Power as long as I did because of job security. They also provide physical security onsite, which is a plus.

    Cons

    I left American Electric Power because I desired an opportunity for personal growth that was not available there.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have any advice that I want to give to management, but I'm required to use at least 20 words to express that.
