Pros

Employees...they are the best part of working at FirstEnergy. The people you work with make the job. They have many talented, hard working people there but Management simply takes advantage of them and continually ask for more.

Cons

The expectation of management, at least within IT, can be quite high. If you are good at something they continually ask more of you and are unwilling to work with you to cross-train others so you can advance within the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your employees. They are the most valuable asset to the company and everything, within reason, should be done in an attempt to keep them there.

    I have been working at FirstEnergy

    Pros

    Compensation is fair compared to the regon. The office is professional. It is nice to work in an office filled with good people.

    Cons

    FirstEnergy can require a lot of overtime. Overtime can require a lot of weekend face time. FirstEnergy does not always acknowledge the extra effort.

    I worked at FirstEnergy

    Pros

    Good work environment, decent pay. The group I worked in was great. For the most part, not too much trouble in day to day work.

    Cons

    Upper management not truthful about the state of the company. They relocate you, make you sign a contract to stay then lay you off before the contract ends. HR cannot be trusted. They will lie and tell you that they will pay to tie up your loose ends when you get laid off and renege at the last minute. I would not trust this company one bit. If you are very sick and have to go on medical, the company nurse will hound you and your doctor until you come back. It doesn't matter if you are getting paid or not. FMLA means nothing. Working storm can be a problem. You are expected to work 16 hours shifts with only 8 hours off. If you live further away, expect that to cut into your rest time. Also the company will send people off for public safety alone. Not a good thing because if something happens to you no one will know until you don't show up for work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't waste money relocating people when you know that you may lay off workers. It's a waste of the employees time as well as yours. Get rid of the HR people, they are very dishonest.
