I have been working at FirstEnergy full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

FirstEnergy has competitive benefits and they consistently pay out incentive compensation bonus.

Cons

FirstEnergy, like many utilities, is structured and does not allow much room for creativity.

Advice to Management

When employees are promoted out of order, or given preferential treatment, it is obvious to the rest of the Corporation, which takes the motivation and drive out of employees.

    I have been working at FirstEnergy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very large company serving 6 different states, so there is definitely room for growth and job transfer if interested. Provides full comprehensive benefits package including company contributions to 401k, and tuition reimbursement. There is always work to do, a recession proof industry. Plenty of opportunity for overtime. Some departments offer 24 hour service availability and shift coverage.

    Cons

    Customer service reps are REQUIRED to be on-call (24/7) for a total of 6 weeks out of each year. Start pay does not closely match the responsibilities of the position. High demand on personal time (even when NOT on call) if there is a major outage condition. Higher than normal turn-over in call center staffing. Monthly cost for benefits for a family is too expensive to acquire on pay offered.

    Advice to Management

    Increase start pay to assist in acquiring qualified candidates and aid in RETAINING existing employees. Try to offer a benefits package that is affordable based on pay being offered.
