    Pros

    Great Benefits, Great pay. Atmosphere is relatively good. I worked in the new west akron campus building. Nice people to work with. Had a fitness area on-site. They hire a lot of interns so it is a good place to get in the door. They will definitively give you a lot of work to do.

    Cons

    Not everyone gets equal opportunity towards training. Expected to learn on the job and master it on your own when you have never done a certain skill set before. Not everyone who is a team lead or manager has the time to do proper training because they are spread so thin with their time. Ability to be promoted requires you to sell your sole. If you aren't a kiss ass who likes to constantly work past a standard 40 hour shift, you get bypassed. promotions come from senior level management who don't know you. If you are a programmer or have a position that is tough to hire someone, then you get better treatment, but if you are in a position that has lots of options, then you are seen as expendable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    enact an appropriate advancement program so that people are not constantly passed over for new opportunities or advancement. Just because they aren't the best looking or most well versed in speaking, they are still a valid asset to the company and deserve to be rewarded for their hard work. And just because someone isn't selling their sole to the company doesn't mean they don't care or put in just as much valid work during their 40 hours. Invest in family time and maybe you will get more people who don't mind coming to work. It creates a better atmosphere when you feel appreciated.

    I worked at FirstEnergy full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Steady work with the number of storms and outages there is always work

    Cons

    Management is horrible, dont appreciate the employees. upper management is disconnected from the day to day operations. there is no trust too much manipulation goes on. Cant trust anyone. The environment is cut throat. The only thing that matter are the numbers
    they need to invest in the infrastructure to help avoid the number of customer outages they have

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    show some care for your employees. get the managers to care about the workers and not just want the number to be high.
