I worked at Ameren full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

One of the more stable employers in the St. Louis area

Cons

Leadership likes to talk about being innovative, but new or innovative ideas are often crushed under the culture of "We've always done it this way."

Too often management does not look for cost effective ways to manage the company which leads to the constant requests for rate increases.

Advice to Management

Be willing to ask what the leadership can do to make the company more viable and increase the value to shareholders.

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

    Pros

    Medical benefits are good. Company location is okay. Free parking.
    Company 401K(but others are just as good and better too)

    Cons

    I agree with others. Get experience and get out. The company wants to look good, (thats what they got Karen Foss to try to do and fix) but the company isn't fooling anyone.
    The work IS 24X7X365. l would not recommend if you have a family; it is a stepping stone to another position elsewhere. No pay raises. The company can talk about integrity, respect and stewardship in the value; but as the saying goes; "do as i say not as i do."

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the dead wood. Both union and non-union employees, it's overdue to do some housecleaning and cut the dead wood headcount. Many "paycheck collectors" and this needs to stop. I mean some departments have 24 people doing what 3 people do.

    I have been working at Ameren as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits for the area. Co-op/interns are given a lot of freedom

    Cons

    Co-op/interns aren't always kept busy, I find myself constantly asking for more work. Some of the work is very tedious and boring.
