The AER is a smart, fast, dynamic company that is making great strides in energy regulation. The work the company produces is top notch but the challenge with the AER is the culture and leadership.
The philosophy at the AER is to create a group culture with full participation, equality and collaboration. This is an excellent idea. What occurs in practice is unfortunately far from that. The leadership styles displayed at the AER are top down, directional, constrictive, not positive, blame based and confining.
Despite a great many number of talented, and exciting coworkers the leaders, managers and higher ups make working for the AER stifling.
