      Excellent Workplace

      Pros

      Incredible work/life balance with the option to have 2 flex days a month = 24 flex days a year! Vacation time equal to industry Really nice offices Kind, supportive, hard working people Excellent pension program Very good benefits especially the amount of money you receive to put towards a Health Spending Account or Lifestyle Spending Account An internal program to reward co-workers for a job well done

      Cons

      There has been a salary freeze for the last 8 years, but compensation to start is fair and the 24 flex days, vacation time, extra days off, excellent pension and benefits program outweigh the salary freeze.

      Good internal growth

      Pros

      Great career development, learning opportunities, and the culture of supporting colleagues. Be prepared to be overworked due to the 30% reduction in staff that occurred February 2020.

      Cons

      The AER as a government agency has been on a salary freeze for eight years and has significant reductions resulting in employees being expected to take on more work which is impacting the culture. Salaries are not paid to the energy market so employees are significantly underpaid these days.
