Pays well (but they are in the middle of a compensation design so, that probably won't hold true..) has some major cultural flaws though.
Environmental, Health and Safety (Current Employee), columbus, ohioSeptember 16, 2014
Pros: great pay and benefits - for now
Cons: ultra conservative environment
This is a great place to work if you are an engineer and/or ultra conservative white man. Women, gays, just don't. They claim to be all for diversity but in the actual working environment it doesn't come through.

There is virtually no room for advancement and you will have to be an engineer to move up, even in things that don't require an engineering – more... background. In my area at least, a lot of the folks are just strange probably because well...they are all engineers. – less

Company needs to offer additional training when employee needs it. Not just throw you to the wolves.
Transmission Operator (Former Employee), New Albany OhioAugust 23, 2014
Pros: still trying to find one. once old management is out new albany will be a great place to work.
Cons: until old management is gone. too many to list.
Company is old school in why change if we have been doing it this way for 30 years.
It is time for the old management to retired and let the younger Management make the progressive changes needed. The AEP Training Dept is also in dire need of new leadership.
The TDC Operators need more respect and compensation for the job stress they work under. Overall – more... work environment needs to be addressed before many of the Operators go elsewhere.
There is so much potential that is being restricted. – less

Human Resource Representative (Current Employee), Columbus, OHMay 6, 2014
Company of accounts and engineers! Not a lot of andvancement, running so lean that it is difficult to gain valuable experience. When jobs do open, the company is only looking for senior level individuals that can "hit the ground running". The work has to get done so there is not a lot of room for entry level employees to learn and grow.
