    Pros

    Best people I ever worked for.
    Lots of guys retiring over the next 10 years...lots of room for advancement
    Management always willing to help and answer questions

    Cons

    The pay is under industry average. Its good money for single kids fresh out of college, but if you have a family...your not saving any money...and could barely afford a house

    Advice to Management

    The management is very good at First Energy

    Pros

    They are very military friendly. The company has a lot of valuable information to provide to new employees. There are a lot of opportunities for hands on training.

    Cons

    Training for new hires is sub par. The information that is available is rarely transferred to new employees. The company has several methods to minimize faults and correct issues, however the requirement to fix everything has made these methods loose their impact. Overall a very hands off company, fire and forget.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more employees. Get more involved in teaching the new hires instead of just letting them figure it out for themselves.
