Financial Analyst (Former Employee), Columbus, OH – May 10, 2013
AEP is one of the largest energy utilities in the United States with annual revenue over $15 billion. I worked in the Commercial Operations department where we bid our assets into the market and bought and sold energy commodities.
Pros: training opportunities to build your career to the next level
American Electric Power provided a flexible work environment. The benefits were above average and I have learned to become a better leader due to their mentoring leadership and training opportunities. Most recent management provided a learning opportunity and projects where I could expand my skillset. I purely enjoyed working for this organization; – more... the networking, ability to build trusting relationships, and flexibility are excellent. – less
Pros: safety bbq's, recognition of employees for job well done.
Very Safety orientated company with Safety being one of the top priorities. Great benefits, great working relations all of the employees working there. Diverse company with equal opportunities for all. Opportunities for advancement. Over all a great place to work for.

Cheylan, West Virginia Equipment Operator (Former Employee), Cheylan, WV – March 6, 2013
Pros: benfits, pay, the people, the culture, the safety consciousness of the company as a whole.
Cons: there wasnt any.
Management is clear and precise in objectives. There to help you learn and grow as an employee. Co-workers are very friendly and willing to help. Very rewarding work. Best part of the job is the people. Hardest part of job is leaving for the day.
NA (Former Employee), COLUMBUS, OHIO – March 3, 2013
The entire company is awful, they will keep you employeed as a contractor for ever. The management sucks because nobody knows what they are doing. They also have a contracting company called Easi which is a company i dont recommend working for either because they lie alot. I HONESTLY DO NOT RECOMMEND EITHER COMPANY AS A PLACE TO WORK.

AEP is finding itself in a difficult environment. As an electric provider that is largely based on burning coal, AEP is finding it challenging to compete with providers based on burning gas and'or utilizing nuclear.
Therefor AEP is cutting costs by reducing staff and eliminating benefits.
