Benefits are Getting Worse

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Akron, OH

I worked at FirstEnergy full-time

ProsGood health insurance, competitive salary, good working conditions. IT actually functions better than at many other large companies.

ConsThe time to have started at FirstEnergy was a few decades ago. Old timers have great pensions. After every merger, a lot of heads roll.

Advice to Senior ManagementNo point - they won't listen.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
