"It keeps getting worse"

Current Employee - Nuclear Technician
Current Employee - Nuclear Technician
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Good compensation and benefits for the area. Good job security in some positions. Extensive training is provided for some positions. Opportunities for advancement within the company.

Cons

Long hours -- there is no work/life balance. Management makes impulsive decisions with poor results and blames workers. There is generally an adversarial relationship between workers and management.

Advice to Management

Treat employees at all levels with respect. Try to retain employees who do good work and have extensive experience. Listen to input from workers when making decisions. Make decisions that will be beneficial in the long term rather than doing things that look good now but will backfire in the future.

    I have been working at FirstEnergy full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company generally has good people, good pay and good benefits. The company is for the most part genuinely concerned with safety.

    Cons

    While I truly believe the company has good intentions implementation is sometimes the problem. They tend to think there's only one way to do things.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff and their experience without constantly making them waste time trying to prove it to you.
