I have been working at FirstEnergy

Pros

Good compensation and benefits for the area. Good job security in some positions. Extensive training is provided for some positions. Opportunities for advancement within the company.

Cons

Long hours -- there is no work/life balance. Management makes impulsive decisions with poor results and blames workers. There is generally an adversarial relationship between workers and management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat employees at all levels with respect. Try to retain employees who do good work and have extensive experience. Listen to input from workers when making decisions. Make decisions that will be beneficial in the long term rather than doing things that look good now but will backfire in the future.

    I have been working at FirstEnergy

    Pros

    A stable company with a good work-life balance. Benefits are typical for a utility company of this size, however in recent years have been cut back some with the downturn of the economy in 2008.

    Cons

    Employees are overworked and compliance ultimately rules a lot of what we do here. Personal growth is valued by management, but not a guarantee of promotion. Promotion appears to be time based, more than ability-based.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promotions should be more consistent across work groups. It appears that additional credentials do not matter in some groups, but do and others.
