    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.
