FirstEnergy - overall not a bad place to be

IT Systems Operation Specialist (Former Employee)
Akron, OH

ProsIt's a large company, so plenty of other departments, managers, locations to go if you don't like your current manager, position, or location. The compensation is good compared to jobs in smaller companies. (Not sure how it rates compared to other large companies.) Benefits are excellent compared to most companies I'm familiar with, other than exceptions such as Google.

ConsThe typical ones found in a large company: bureaucracy, sometimes stifling. However, this varies a lot based on your manager, department, position, and reputation.

Advice to Senior ManagementNone.
