      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Very innovative and forward-thinking. I am proud of being part of the energy change and to support communities around the world - The diversity is impressive in all levels and departments of the organization. Leadership and board of directors are made out of smart women and men from diverse backgrounds representing different cultures and needs - As a foreigner, I admire how much my international experience, language skills, and culture are valued every day - Collaboration between many teams and many levels - Flexibility when managing your own time and trust from management. There is no micromanaging and "online supervision" - Great salary and benefits - Great growth opportunities within the company, including opportunities for relocation and other markets exploration - Safety overall and also during Covid

      Cons

      - Seeing a slight push from leadership to go back to the office full-time. Hoping to continue with the working from home flexibility or some sort of hybrid environment - Lack of flexibility with devices. Not all employees like or perform their best with the current Microsoft devices/software available.

      Overall a good company with many opportunities for growth

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      AES is a company with global reach and opportunities to stretch skill sets and to change physical locations (primarily to Central and South America). The C-suite team is smart and straightforward with a solid vision for the company. The company's forward focus on renewable energy plus solid alliances with companies like Google makes it one of the good guys in the energy sector and promises long-term success as an enterprise. The company is also strong in taking its diversity initiatives seriously.

      Cons

      In the past few years, the company has been chronically understaffed for the level of work that is generated. This causes a large amount of burnout and loss of talent who can't handle the pace. While the pay and benefits are strong, the imbalance of work vs. people to do the work can make work/life balance difficult.

      A Great Company to Work

      Oct 12, 2021 - Senior Reliability Engineer Manager in Indianapolis, IN
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      We have the best CEO. He is very open, honest, and transparent which of a high priority for me. The people are wonderful! There are so many opportunities to work with people in other countries and learn other languages and cultures and some travel. Our benefits and pay are great! If you are interested in innovation, this is the place to be!

      Cons

      I'm not sure that this is a con, but technology is rapidly changing and we are always trying to improve and change with it. There's no grass growing under our feet.

      Nice company

      Oct 12, 2021 - Marketing Communications Manager 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The company offers good salaries, benefits and a friendliness between co-workers. In the same way, they have values and metrics of self-development. They have been quite responsible in the management of Covid 19 and the established internal policies.

      Cons

      They demand a lot in such a short time, which does not allow you to create a fair and healthy balance between your personal life and your family. There is no departure time as such, just solve solve and solve. Too many meetings, especially virtually, to plan what you don't have time to execute. They take too long to "trust" people and in some departments they work by committees.

      Pros

      AES has a great, values driven culture that clearly shows through in the new brand. The company has offered me many opportunities to grow in my career in and outside of my day-to-day role. You also get the opportunity to work with people from all over the world, which is very rewarding.

      Cons

      At times the work can be very demanding, but the work we do is also very rewarding.
