FirstEnergy is a good place to work, but is not without its flaws.

Pros

Excellent benefits include 401(k) with employer matching (up to 6 percent). Additional 6% employer matching based on corporate objectives. There are many great opportunities for advancement. Because this company has had deficiencies in certain areas in the past that have had a major negative impact, it has worked hard to turn its image around. FirstEnergy now is beginning to be a leader in corporate implementation of Information Technologies. There are other areas that were turned around in a similar manner. Opportunities exist all over FirstEnergy.

Cons

Sometimes too structured. Separation of duties makes it difficult to get access to resources (access to systems and facilities).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make it easier to gain access to required resources.

    Pros

    This is a very interesting business in which to gain experience, since everybody uses electricity. I enjoyed the quantitative nature of the work, and the opportunities to gain more in-depth knowledge about topics like energy generation and distribution, as well as the nature of new deregulation policies in Ohio.

    Cons

    This is a conservative company. This means the overall pace of work is rather slow, and there's a bit of lack of motivation coming down from management. Again, the company is regulated by the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio-meaning the bottom line is assured by political deals with PUCO, and not as much by efficiency and scale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace deregulation.
