    I have been working at Ameren full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very stable company with great benefits. Company cares very well about employee safety. Salary is very good and is usually above average for entry levels. Very close community, senior employees always ready to help newer ones who may not be up to speed.

    Cons

    For certain engineering disciplines, it might be a little restricted.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, especially your concern about employee safety.

    I have been working at Ameren full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Ameren cares about it's employees and is always evaluating how to evolve with our changing needs. Benefits are better than any I've had elsewhere and advancement opportunities are available if you're willing to step up.

    Cons

    Pace of change can be frustrating. Ameren likes everything to be done by consensus. This involves a lot of meetings, and a lot of people, in turn leading to a lot of time before anything really gets decided and done.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to move a little faster and empower people to make decisions. Change doesn't need to stay in the idea phase for long.

    Pros

    Good Benefits, Pension, Large variety of areas to work in

    Cons

    No concept of training, too many "organizational announcements" with people being shuffled, unorganized, zero respect for loyalty to the company

    Advice to Management

    INVEST in your people. Train them and pay them accordingly. Disrespecting them by underpaying them is how you lose good people to other companies. Show some form of appreciation for those who are loyal to the company!
