    Pros

    Competitive pay and good benefits, employees tend to me moved around the company when the want to be, and there are always opportunities to move up in a large company like FirstEnergy.

    Cons

    As with all companies, selection for some positions in the company is not necessarily based on the quality of work one does.

    I worked at FirstEnergy full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    IF you are one of "them", great benefits, opportunity for advancement

    Cons

    No value or appreciation shown for hard work, no loyalty to employees (the more years you have, the more you better worry), most managers are lousy managers, even if they know their craft. Good managers tend to leave this company, probably to be around people they can respect

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people like you actually give a .... Reward hard work and service years. Get your HR department to actually have HUMAN in its job description. Hire MANAGERS, not your good golf buddy who has a degree. Managing people requires a very specific skill set, few of your managers have it
