Excellent Benefits with great pay
Out of pocket Cost but not as bad as some others.
Good health benefits, retirement plans and pension. PTO is fine but not as generous as some other companies
The best things about working for FirstEnergy are their 401K, health benefits, company perks, vacation time off, time off for sick leave, choose your work hours,
Good benefit. One of the few companies that still offer pension.
Very nice Pension Plan and Health care plan is very affordable
Inadequate PTO otherwise generous and typical for a utility
Solid, typical Fortune 500-type benefit package. New employees have a cash-balance pension (company contributions only) plus a standard matched 401(k) with some excellent low-cost funds plus an optional self-directed brokerage window. Annual bonus/incentive pay program with payouts based on company/department performance. Decent Health benefits at reasonable cost. Fairly generous time off benefits - new employees start with 8 paid holidays plus 19 PTO days per year.
Many benefits are advantageous for newer employees, but not so much for longtime employees. 401(k) is matched up to 6% of salary, which seems fairly standard. Pension was stopped for newer employees. Vacation and sick leave rolled into a bundle of PTO days. Need to burn 5 days in a row when sick before you can access short-term disability unless hospitalized overnight. Big change for many with chronic illnesses.
Generous vacation time, great 401K options, competent coworkers with a great focus on safety.
