    Friendly, helpful people. During the summer there were many opportunities to drive to job sites and work away from the desk.

    Work was boring and repetitive.

    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 Management

    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.

    You will become a better lineman working for Ameren, but you won't be treated like one.

    Pros

    Good money, good retirement, good benefits, get to go on a lot of storms

    Cons

    Treated pretty poorly by higher ups, job siting sucks, always feel like they are trying to take something from you

    Advice to Management

    Being proactive is good, but when you do it at the cost of morale when there is no mandated change coming that is just silly. If you would quit overreacting to singular situations and throwing blanket policies on those situations, then we may actually enjoy working for you.

    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 Management

    Great job! Keep it up!

    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.

    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 Management

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

  10. Great company with above average income and the best benefits package I've ever seen!
