From Everything.Sucks

Ameren Corporation is an American power company created December 31, 1997, by the merger of St. Louis, Missouri's Union Electric Company (formerly NYSE: UEP) and the neighboring Central Illinois Public Service Company (CIPSCO Inc. holding, formerly NYSE: CIP) of Springfield, Illinois. It is now a holding company for several power companies and energy companies.

One of its customers aggressively pointed out, "This company can go choke on a corn cob. Absolute nightmare to deal with. I got a disconnect notice for $2.67 in the mail. Of course I paid it, but when customers have $500-$1000 bills and are not getting a shut off notice, yet I did over $2.67. They have been on my case since 4 years ago, the wrongfully shut off my power. A mistake on their part, which they admitted. It was supposed to have actually been my neighbor. They took their sweet tune turning it back on and the police were sent to my house with the Ameren worker. The Police officer said Ameren had me flagged as an angry customer and sent him with the Ameren rep to restore my power. When I told the officer what happened, he was floored and said he understood why I was angry. I have 2 words for Ameren. one begins with an F. The other is a You."


se tol says "Complete scam!!! Once I find out who the “sales person” pretending to be my electric provider was I am 1000% pressing charges! They pretended to be my power company and said they needed to collect info to get rid of the “summer rates”, he even had a fake Delmarva power badge. I just looked at my bill and see that I am signed up for a service I never authorized. I will cut my electricity off today if I am not refunded. Shady company, if a person comes to your door pretending to be your provider just call them first and turn the person away. I cannot wait to take full action on this sucker as soon as the phone lines open."
Alan Gibbs says "Has anyone out there attempted to redeem their RE debit card. I have spent a good 20 minutes at the web site they list trying to figure out how to redeem my card. I have looked at dozens of sites and NONE even mention redeeming your card. Any company so stupid as to have a redemption program web site so badly designed is not worth having as an energy supplier."
Jordan Siebe says "These pieces of trash came to my door saying they were my original provider and I was changing to a newer power plan that would save me money. They signed me up for their service. Now I'm having to cancel. This is a scam."
Martin says "Liars overcharge me every month they promise a rate of 0.09 per kilowatt and i got 0.19670... thieves!!!"

That's why swift action was taken to secure the area you referenced in regard to a building neighboring Ameren's property. It's also important for you to know that all Ameren buildings meet all code requirements and the building you specifically referenced offers three accessible ramps with ADA-compliant restrooms.

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says "Office people have their nose in other people's "dating and LIFE" business. There are undercover racists in the Collinsville office. What is even more hilarious is the IL-President is a black man whose wife is white, but yet my white EX-supervisor and his counterpart were racist towards whom office people were dating another race and decided to make it their business."
says "Terrible leadership, politics and inability to listen to employees. Very much an environment where IT does not work together. Requirements are dictated not discussed and if they don't like the solution they go over your head and you are held at fault."
Missouri says "Micromanagement! It's more important to be seen than to actually work. Nepotism.. lots of nepotism"
says "Ameren is not interested in converting contract talent to a full time employee. The overall company strategy is to make the majority of it staff contract work. Contractors are treated as 3rd class. They are not accepting of new and innovative ideas. Truly a sad state."
