    Former Employee - Intern in Fulton, MO (US)

    I worked at Ameren full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    There were lots of opportunities to learn about whatever area you were interested in. There were lots of chances to explore the plant and network with others. All the interns got along really well. All of the full time employees really seemed to enjoy their jobs

    Cons

    Working in the nuclear industry means there are lots of safety regulations and red tape. This makes it hard for an intern to contribute anything valuable during such a short amount of time. I was often bored.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Discuss career opportunities with interns so we could understand where we lie in the company and where we could be if we became full time employees.

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

    Pros

    Work hours are good, and personnel is very friendly and helpful. They work really hard to make you feel at home and help you throughout the summer. Time off whenever you really need it, very understanding.

    Cons

    The start and end dates were a little un-transparent, so you aren't quite sure how many weeks you will work and how much you will ultimately make over the summer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great job! Keep it up!

    I worked at Ameren

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    They are stuck in their old manpower ways. They need to be more open to change.

    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.

    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.

    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!
