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 Management

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.

    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 Management

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

    A heaping pile of unrecognized ability and unrealized potential.

    Pros

    They have a pension plan, which many companies no longer have.
    Many jobs there have a lot of stability built in....electricity is not going away any time soon

    Cons

    An almost utter disregard by the parent company to keeping the power grid functional in New Jersey.
    Low staff manning will mean a lot of overtime...some people may like this.
    A lot of frustration due to knowing you could treat your customers better, but not being allowed to do so due to lack of manpower, or budget restraints.
    Be prepared for all credit to roll uphill
    You will not be promoted due to your ability, only due to your toeing the company line...as crooked as it may be
    If you have strong ethics and morals, you may want to re-consider

    Advice to Management

    You really should listen to your corporate trainers in Ohio....they are actually quite good!
