    FirstEnergy is a reputable company with growth opportunities for those willing to work smart and hard.

    Senior Distribution Engineer (Current Employee)
    Akron, OH

    ProsFirstEnergy has competitive benefits and they consistently pay out incentive compensation bonus.

    ConsFirstEnergy, like many utilities, is structured and does not allow much room for creativity.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen employees are promoted out of order, or given preferential treatment, it is obvious to the rest of the Corporation, which takes the motivation and drive out of employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
