I worked at FirstEnergy

Pros

good pay in the nuclear part of business
descent benefits
lots of people retiring, therefore should be jobs opening up

Cons

workers negative about everything
recognition program is not consistent
middle management not trained in supervisory skills
employees allowed to "goof off", causing good employees to be unmotivated
turnovers from old employee to new employee is nonexistant
work does not flow
groups do not work well together

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Train your middle management (first-line supervision) to lead by example and use leadership skills to lead their groups. First-line supervision and managers need to work as a unit and not contradict one another. Need to beef up IT dept and get all the work documents and work flow under one system that is easy to understand. Train your employees on basic computer skills.

    Pros

    Starting Compensation is fair, but overall you are not compensated fairly.

    Cons

    management does not care about you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove older employees and start caring around younger people. Money will not buy you all-stars.

    Pros

    Coworkers are nice and helpful.

    Cons

    The management and supervisors do not have technical understanding of engineering. The obsolete plant which will be shut down in near future. The plant has been runing by itself. The management does not understand the value of real works.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice is the best advice
