Maintenance Mechanic, Machinist (Current Employee), Rockport, IndianaFebruary 27, 2015
Enjoyed working here for many years. Co workers are like family. Just like everywhere else insurance is getting more expensive and they are cutting benefits. However for the area it is still a great place to work.

This was an okay good company to work for, as the pay was good. However, they were very disorganized at the corporate level and communication between corporate units was nonexistent.

Not worth your time
Deck Hand - River Operations Division (Former Employee), Lakin, WVJanuary 24, 2015
Pros: pay is decent and benefits are good
Cons: back stabbing, clickish, promotion sucks. you will be in your position for a while
If you are going to work out on the river I suggest another company other than this. It does pay more and they do have decent benefits but the promotion sucks and they have a click and if you are not apart of it then watch your back. I have seen good people get fired for minor infractions. I would work for Archer Daniels, Marathon or someone else if I was wanting to work on the river.

Dallas based company - well run, lean .

People who from bottom to top did the right thing, rewarded success and set very high integrity standards.

The AEP - DC Cook Experience
Senior Auditor and Safety Coordinator (Former Employee), Columbus, OHDecember 3, 2014
Pros: close to home, good pay and benefits
Cons: during outages - stress levels would rise in most co workers
AEP - DC Cook was a great place to start my career. I learned a tremendous amount while working there and was able to travel around the country evaluating suppliers. This allowed me to learn a lot from how different products we use at a nuclear plant are fabricated. I got to meet a lot of new people and felt like family there as well.

Subject to micromanagement, mangement poorly communicates
Contractor through Sun Technical (Current Employee), MichiganOctober 13, 2014
Pros: decent pay
Cons: no benefits
Company claims to be a team-oriented place. However, it is anything but that. As a contractor, you are treated as lowly and replaceable. Process to get a permanent position is unclear and is subject to "who you know," as opposed to based on merit.

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 background. In my area at least, a lot of the folks are just strange probably because well...they are all engineers.
