Pros

It has a competitive pay scale and good benefits. No overseas travel is required. Many good people work for this company.

Cons

It is a very political environment with obvious favoritism. Doing a good job does not necessarily equate to a raise or promotion.

Advice to Management

Management should focus more on development and training of employees and managers. It seems there are many managers who do not know how to lead.

    Pros

    FirstEnergy allows a good balance between work / home when needed. Pay is competitive. There is a lot of freedom to do what you can, get the job donie the best way which makes it more enjoyable.

    Cons

    It is a very lareg company which sometimes makes you feel like a 'number' instead of a person. Sometimes I question the opportunity to advance,

    Advice to Management

    Try to come 'down to the working persons level' once in a while. understand day to day jobs and what we actualy do...te 'physical labor' end of the company. Not bean counters

  2. Solid place to work
