    I have been working at FirstEnergy (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    + unique plant environment and roles + great coworkers + decent pay for given location

    Cons

    - very challenging advancement path - outages require 72 hour weeks for at least a month out of every 2 years - company's relatively poor market position and finances which lead to small raises that lag COLA

    Advice to Management

    Focus on retaining young talent as experienced individuals continue to retire. Compensation practices may need to be improved to entice younger workers to stay.
