I have been working at FirstEnergy

Pros

Best people I ever worked for.
Lots of guys retiring over the next 10 years...lots of room for advancement
Management always willing to help and answer questions

Cons

The pay is under industry average. Its good money for single kids fresh out of college, but if you have a family...your not saving any money...and could barely afford a house

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The management is very good at First Energy

    Pros

    One of the best paying companies in Ohio. Opportunities are there, but you have to be willing to really seek them out. As always, you can be whatever you want to be but you must be engaged and willing to work for it.

    Cons

    Still a company of the good old boys. Opportunities for females are harder to come by. There are females in upper management but overall there is a tilt towards male management.

    A number of changes to benefits since the recession started. Not convinced they were need but they benefited the company at that time and will continue to provide benefit to company long term.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open more opportunities for females. Treat your long-term employees better. They have been loyal to you and desire recognition in both salary, appreciation and benefits. Much of that is gone now.

    Pros

    Very secure company with good benefits.

    Cons

    You need to be connected to the 'right' person to advance. Skills, education and experience are not necessarily considered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs more training on how to develop employees.
