    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Akron, Ohio

    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.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Akron, Ohio

    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.

    The best thing about the benefits package is FirstEnergy is 1 of very few companies left that offer a pension.

    The best thing about benefits - FirstEnergy provides a comprehensive total rewards package. Competitive salary, annual bonus potential, medical/dental/vision plans.

    I think you should be allowed to update your PTO for the week that you pay for just like all PTO instead of having to go through open enrollment
