Pros

FirstEnergy allows a good balance between work / home when needed. Pay is competitive. There is a lot of freedom to do what you can, get the job donie the best way which makes it more enjoyable.

Cons

It is a very lareg company which sometimes makes you feel like a 'number' instead of a person. Sometimes I question the opportunity to advance,

Advice to Management

Try to come 'down to the working persons level' once in a while. understand day to day jobs and what we actualy do...te 'physical labor' end of the company. Not bean counters

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Can make a lot of money working overtime

    Cons

    People working at the plants are nice, but managers are not kind, and are very dogmatic. They threaten employees that don't "get in line", and is very much the good ol' boy network.

    Not very diverse work, and the majority of the technology is very old and out dated.

    Managers are very cheap, and sometimes do not want to pay overtime.

    Could care less if you have a life outside of work, they would rather you ruin your life, get divorced, and stay at their unhealthy plants.

    Managers think its the best place on earth to work , and don't understand why morale is low.

    Advice to Management

    Get real, and start to listen to employees, and stop taking out such enormous bonuses, and then have plant employees work overtime and scold them for charging for it.
