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 – 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
