Pros

Projects are challenging and unique
Flexible work schedule
Fun people to work with

Lots of individual work

Cons

Compensation is less than desired
No recognition for IT Certifications
Employee tenure is favored over competancy
No current plan to build/develop employee skills - IT is a rapidly changing environment and staggnant companies will lose their competitive advantage if they do not change/adapt

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to employee's concerns and seriously consider our needs/wants
Need future vision of where Network Architecture will be in 5/10yrs
Praise employee development and reward innovation
Promotions should be merit based

    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.
