    I worked at FirstEnergy

    Pros

    If 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get 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.

    Pros

    You work with nice people, but career progression is difficult and the management team is extremrly incompetent and incapable.

    Cons

    Salary is poort, job is bad and dissatisfying. You will work on projects that have no impact. Cronyism is a big problem...Raises are 2% and this year, our pay was cut so alot of people have been leaving the company. In short, you will kill your career...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a good job. take feedback. Reward performance. Promote those that deserve it , not those that have been in the company for a billion years. The ship is sinking..
