    Pros

    Great benefits
    Exciting work culture
    Always new challenges
    A lot of smart people
    Promotes within
    Carmel voted one of the best places to live in America

    Cons

    It seems there are some positions that are filled or created just to be able to provide a job for people who have worked there a while. Though this may seem loyal, these individuals are getting paid a lot of money to not do a lot.

    Advice to Management

    If possible, try not to give into upper management pushing for certain employees or people that they "know" to fill positions within the company.

    Pros

    Meets lots of new people. Shift work keeps you out of most of the company politics.

    Cons

    High turnover, undercut their salaries, lots of people faking to get ahead

    Advice to Management

    Give employees a voice without fear of retribution.

    Pros

    People care about each other and very work life balanced. Friendly atmosphere and lots of opportunities for learning and growth.

    Cons

    The workplace is so laid back that half of the time people are on YouTube or social media and just surfing the web.

    Pros

    Intelligent and social co-workers, impressive bonuses, living and working in Hamilton County- top ranked county in Indiana, good exposure to energy markets

    Cons

    There are many individuals at this company that are wildly overpaid for the work they do (or don't do much of) on a daily basis. These are smart, good people who need more to do, it's not that they're lazy. There's many jobs at this company that don't push people to be their best, which is good for work life balance but bad for company growth, sense of purpose, overall morale.

    Advice to Management

    Being out of the office for weeks on end is not a good thing for the top dog, look to develop value-added positions and make sure people are always moving forward and not bored. Embrace renewables or the company dies in 15 years. Also, watch out for nepotism over-political hiring/promoting, these behaviors cause talk around the office and undermine respect for leaders.

    I worked at Aces Power Marketing full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very stable company that cares about their employees.
    Health insurance costs are cheap and the 401k match is unheard of. My 401k grew rapidly. The annual bonus is very good. Made it very hard to leave the company.

    Cons

    I agree with other comments about that growth is only by your time and not your skills. It is all about titles there. Everyone is a manager. If they run out of tittles for a promotion they make another one.
    Not a lot of passion there. Most people are just putting their 8 hours in.
    Political game is very heavy there.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in training for your employees so they can continue to grow and you will see the benefits. Employees will take an interest in their jobs.

    Pros

    Great place to learn the energy field and get your foot in the door. Casual Work environment and very long drive in the middle of Benson. Relatively easy job with good training modules.

    Cons

    Highly micro-managed group. Small group of young guys who are right out of college with no experience. Big ego based group with high turnover ratio.

    Advice to Management

    Higher more experienced traders and pay a more competitive salary. Think about relocating office to a more central location.

    Pros

    ACES is a great company to work for. The benefits and pay are very competitive. It is filled with very intelligent and hard working individuals. The atmosphere allows for useful interaction and growth within the company.

    Cons

    It's rather difficult to come up with any cons, but this atmosphere isn't for everyone. It's definitely a fast paced and changing environment with the current energy transitions. They have an open floor plan that can have its pros and cons.
