    I worked at Ameren as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    They give you meaningful work to complete. The pay was great. They gave me paid holidays. All of my coworkers were completely willing to teach me what I needed to know. My coworkers were also very welcoming. The company works you hard, which i like.

    Cons

    I have no real cons. You should just expect to work. They are sort of strict about showing up on time, and working the full 40 hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I had no issues with upper management. They were all cool dudes and dudettes.

    Former Employee - Customer Care Advisor in Saint Louis, MO (US)
    Former Employee - Customer Care Advisor in Saint Louis, MO (US)

    I worked at Ameren full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Salary is great with plenty of overtime. Benefits are great. Love coworkers (peers).

    Cons

    Management indecisive. Not consistent with employees. No work/life balance. Only care about numbers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want better employees learn to listen to the employees doing the job. Its easy to get on TV and say you care about people and their life but when the cameras are off you only care about money. In order to have better employees on the lower level you have to be willing to listen to what they are saying. Some suggestions are excellent and will help improve VPQ. Lower level employees are scared to speak there mind in fear of being on the chopping block.

    Current Employee - Communications Intern in Saint Louis, MO (US)

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

    Pros

    Great upper and middle management. Very personal for being such a large company, very impressed they remembered the interns name on a first name basis. treated well, pay is amazing for being in college, one on one job training, very personal staff, work with a small group, given responsiblities to manage, very trusting, fun place to learn, exciting places to work at such as power plants and special events throughout Saint Louis.

    Cons

    Nothing really, wish there were more college aged students in the department to relate with. Most of the people working in the communications department have been there a while and are in their 30's-40's

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work! Do everything you can to make people feel included!

    Step out of the box and be real thought leaders. It's the only way you will ever become an industry leading IOU.

    I worked at Ameren as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Very friendly people
    Lax work schedule
    Awesome work/life balance
    No issues concerning the possibliity of getting laid off (hence 'utility company')

    Cons

    Too Lax of work schedule at times
    Not as upbeat to suit a young worker (of course, depending on your personality)
    The Midwest isn't the most exciting region of the U.S

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open minded as possible of other's concerns and suggestions. This way, everyone feels respected and driven to utilize their pride on the job…but of course that's with every company.
