      Pros

      Its a mid size company and if you get hired in the right role, you might be able to contribute to the growth and make an impact.

      Cons

      Too many changes in Digital recently. Leadership is trying to do lots of changes at a higher level without addressing the fundamental issues of the digital workforce. A lot of hiring at the high level making the organization more hierarchal. More focus is needed on the worker bees in boosting their morale and showing appreciation through incentives. It feels like the new shiny objects(hires) are largely favored over the...

      Advice to Management

      1) Stop creating new strategies and focus on executing the existing developed strategies. 2) Leadership team needs to get off meetings and understand the pulse of their workforces 3) Empower, train and develop the existing workforces rather than hiring new people with fancy titles.

      Flexible work hours, casual dress, matching 401k, pension, fantastic benefits, ample amount of vacation, and job security!!!

      Cons

      none that I can think of

      Advice to Management

      Keep up the good work. I previously worked for a fortune 500 company and Ameren beats what they offered hands down!!

      I have been working at Ameren full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Location, benefits, fitness center, islands of good/bright folks trying to punch thru the bureaucracy the new leadership has added (and - up until last 12-16 months - the great work/life culture and balance)

      Cons

      Ameren Information Technology (Ameren Digital) is an absolute mess. There has been a complete change in management and initially, we were very excited that this change would renew the old culture. Unfortunately, it has done just the opposite. The new senior leaders are completely unqualified for transforming a corporate culture, new layers of management from outside Ameren have just added to the bureaucracy, the new...

      Advice to Management

      Bring "safe to say" back for employees in Ameren Information Technology. Train new senior leadership how to conduct a department transformation. Stop trying to transform everything all at once. Treat employees that were at Ameren before the new IT senior leadership with respect and realize there are good, skilled, technical people here that want to change the department for the better.

        Cons

        Ameren Information Technology / Digital has undergone substantial change in the past 12-16 months in an attempt to reshape what was arguably a very legacy culture with not a whole lot of fresh thinking. As I consider myself one of those existing employees working to constantly innovate and get things done (in spite of that legacy mindset that does exist here), I was initially excited at these changes and for the first...

        Advice to Management

        My hope is that the large number of newly hired Digital leaders have just been moving too quickly to realize the impact of their drastic change and decision-making in a short time. Clearly the intention is to re-invigorate and reset the Ameren IT/Digital organization with fresh thinking and a reboot of the culture to bring it into a more contemporary, customer/results driven mindset - but I cannot believe the intention...
