Heads buried like an ostrich

Business Analyst (Former Employee)
Akron, OH

I worked at FirstEnergy

ProsIf you know how to play their game, you can succeed. I was told by co-workers that not all departments function the same and some are fair, but I never saw this during my time there.

ConsHard work does not always pay off. Management was too wrapped up in themselves to see the big picture.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet your heads out of the sand and open your eyes. Notice what is going on in the department. There are good workers that are being ignored and poor workers that can shmooz and move up in the company.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Good pay but management doesn't get it. Management gets promoted politically.
