MDF Specialist (Former Employee) – Decatur – October 8, 2018
Working at the MDF building was an experience I will never forget. The work was super easy, and slow paced. Anyone could work there at any level. Supervision was awful, they were 100% out of touch with problems in the warehouse. Many "personal" relationships happen in that building. One girl in particular has dated every man in the warehouse and acts completely inappropriately. She has also had men fired from there. It's a hellish place where the union steward is having an inappropriate relationship with a newer employee. This is 100% the type of thing you would deal with daily. Union and company arguments daily. Stay away from working at Ameren's MDF building.
Civil Engineer- Dam Safety & Hydro Engineering (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – September 25, 2018
Ameren is a good, steady company. It provides a secure work environment. There is a good culture among employees and it is a fun place to work. The one criticism I heard from employees is that is can be slow paced.
IT Worker (Former Employee) – Saint Louis, MO – August 14, 2018
I worked at Ameren for 10 years and thought I would be there for the long haul. The company and culture depends on your immediate supervisor. The last supervisor I had was more than horrible when it came to being fair. Upper management has no clue what is going on and the company thinks things are changing. It was an interesting last year at the company. There are many changes, new senior leadership and lots of "new" college grads. The people that have been there a while are frustrated because they are left out of the new changes and no one in senior leadership cares what is going on.
It seems like the people who choose not to work are the ones getting promoted while the worker bees are left out in the cold.
Some of my coworkers were great, others were horrible
manipulative people, the pay is sub par, the middle aged generation is getting pushed out
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Pawnee, IL – June 13, 2018
I was only with the company for a couple months past training (which is the same with most of my entire training class that I started with) before I was let go for having to miss some of training. Training was fun but as everyone that works there will tell you, after training it is very stressful.
Cyber Security Analyst (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – June 1, 2018
if you haven't been there for more than 15 years, you don't matter. they don't listen to new ideas. they are stuck doing things just because that is the way they have always done them, at least in the IT world.
Great place to work. Great people and above average benefits.
Procurement Supervisor (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – May 22, 2018
Fun place to work with exceptional benefits. Hard to move up and if you turn down a promotion don't expect to be ever asked again. Very top down mgt. style (military). Have many union employees working in what are traditional salaried positions which I found quite bureaucratic and which slowed progress.
Customer Accounts Bookkeeper (Current Employee) – Saint Louis, MO – April 12, 2018
I learned a lot about collaborating with other departments. The most frusterating part about working at Ameren communication between the union and management, it can be difficult to find answers to questions.
Distribution Systems Operating Supervisor (Current Employee) – Peoria, IL – April 5, 2018
Turn off your cell phone. Don't bring problems to work. Respect others. Treat your co-workers as if they are your second family. Learn what is being taught. Work hard and you will be move up the ladder.
Utility Worker (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – April 2, 2018
Ameren is the best company a man can land a job with. I would still be there if I did not have a very uncommon situation back in 1996. The company really endorses first rate training and follows the union labor contract perfectly. The stewards have their work cut out for sure as they are between professional workers and professional management. Nonetheless I highly recommend any opportunity to work for this company. AAA+++
