Former Employee - Business Analyst II in Brecksville, OH

I worked at FirstEnergy full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

I was proud too be a part of a solid company from the beginning. I really liked the wide range of responsibilities I carried my whole time there. Being surrounded by people that had 20+ years service was a good way to learn about the company and how I would be able to help. I was allowed to improve how things were being done for the good of the department.

Cons

FirstEnergy has spent the last few years learning that they are not good at making adjustments due to the market. That has made it very difficult to succeed with the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would suggest that management looks more into the future when making decisions...and more important, speak with their subordinates to guarantee that they are working on an actual issue. Too many decisions made from things that really had no bearing on the company as a whole.

    I worked at FirstEnergy full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Co- workers, especially those who worked hard to make end meet but did not get recognized for their hard work.

    Cons

    too political. If you work hard but your manager doesn't like you, that's it you're done. Promotion not base on performance but based on who you know. You could be a great worker and work for 15 -20 years, you will stuck in the same position forever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    reward people for their performance. Get rid of those who under performed.

    Fast growing company, with an unfortunate corporate system.

    I worked at FirstEnergy as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Company stability, benefits, and job stability.

    Cons

    Corporate managing and guidelines. Poor management and selection. Hard work does not capitalize advancements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start focusing on employees that provide good results and hard work for advancement rather than people that work their way up by knowing the right people and how much they "A" they kiss.
