    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.

    Ameren is very flexible and pays very well. Your supervisors actually care about your well-being. I'd recommend working for this company to anyone.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Great Pay. Great work culture. Learn a lot quickly. They take care of their engineers.

    Cons

    If you do your job well, be prepared to have to compensate for those who do not. They overwork the good employees and let the duds bottom feed.

    Advice to Management

    Get everyone to do their part or get rid of those who don't. Sleeping, video games, and personal calls all day is overboard.
