    I have been working at IPL (Indiana) full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good co-workers for the most part. Interesting work (and plenty of it). Working conditions adequate.

    Cons

    The non-union old "IPL" people lost several things in the "AES harmonizing of benefits" with DPL and other AES companies in North America (pay increases, pay levels, vacation/sick days, retirement increases ). There appears to be no respect or appreciation for the older "IPL" people. Management and HR seems to only focus on the younger and newer "AES" people.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck when the rest of the older "IPL" employees retire. Really stupid to take away benefits from the older employees instead of "grandfathering" existing benefits. A lot of lost experience in the near future. To the "AES" employees: Have fun when you are a younger employee. Don't burn yourself out. As you get older, don't expect the same fun, or appreciation from management. A sincere "good luck" in the future.

    Pros

    Small Rural setting, small work group, solid work ethics.
    Good Safety program.
    regular hours 9-5

    Cons

    No flexibility on working hours.
    strict dress code. All things/decisions run through the C.E.O. first.
    No real leadership.
    a lot of gossip.

    Advice to Management

    great place to work if you can get past the Cons.

    I worked at IPL (Indiana) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very well known company in Indianapolis, Great benefits and great pay. Loved the hours.

    Cons

    This position did not have a work-life balance. I was on the phones taking inbound calls and also expected to do my team leader duties, often I had to work lat hours or from home to stay on track.

    Advice to Management

    To continue to hire people with a good attitude that are willing to assist others. Also to continue to do what they are doing in the Indianapolis community.

    Its a Utility. A monopoly is a great thing if you are one.

    Utilities are slow to change

    Think about your employees

    Pros

    Great people in Power Delivery. Management works with employees to get things done for the community.

    Cons

    The battle between the old IPL individuals and the AES changes.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to re-invest in the local infrastructure and outsource services to compliment union employees

    I have been working at IPL (Indiana) full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I've met many wonderful people at IPL and have enjoyed working under 6 different managers at IPL. Benefits are better than average and pay is competitive.

    Cons

    Parent company (AES) has many executives with little to no experience running a regulated electric utility, and it shows in strategy and direction.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that it takes effort and resources to develop people, and that great people make as much of an impact on profitability as anything else.

    I have been working at IPL (Indiana) part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone in the IT department are amazingly nice, the whole company it's self is full of great people. That's how it is at Morris Street location anyways.

    Cons

    None after the first few months. I accepted the 23/hr as I had no experience and for a college kid it's amazing. Then later found out the others with experience are making vastly more, around 30-35/hr

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.
