    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at FirstEnergy full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Compensation, benefits, people. Freedom to work independently and make your own judgement calls.

    Cons

    Shift work..not much else bad to say. As with any company you will have people you would rather not work with... but otherwise that's it.

    I have been working at FirstEnergy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Challenging work environment, with excellent resources and a very encouraging team atmosphere. Employee pay is very good, and seems to be very competitive to the industry. Also benefits are great (despite what older employees might claim as they had even better benefits at one point).

    Cons

    Most of the positions are high stress positions, that require excellent attention to detail and an understanding of complex subject matter. Due to the nature of the work, many job responsibilities or tools are in constant flux. The electric system itself is very dynamic and it requires people in the power industry to be very excellent at dynamic problem solving.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be that management should take more advice from employees performing essential job functions when considering upgrades to tools or systems. Operator input on transmission projects in planning for instance, would go a long way to help address the disconnect that sometimes exist between design practicality and necessity. Overall, this "open to suggestions" culture has been really excellent with regards to safety culture. It could be another strong benefit that will ultimately improve performance of the system and employee morale. My experience with management at FE has always been positive and that's really the only suggestion I have.
