    I have been working at U.S. First Energy full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Highly Educated workforce with vast knowledge in the industry. Great team environment within the region you work. Salary Range typically pays slightly over market value. Vast growth in many different departments within the company. a truly humbling job as you never truly know 100% of your job. Always room to to grow within your business unit.

    Cons

    Company has above average financial vulnerabilities. Corporate shake ups occur more frequently than I would like, but it’s standard in today’s work force. Communication can be sketchy at times and efforts in projects can be weighed down by a lack of familiarity within each business units competencies. Not really sure what their 5 year outlook will look like, but their motivation is clearly focused at improving share...

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at U.S. First Energy full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Some of the people are good to work with

    Cons

    Ok. Now that I'm retired I'll just go ahead and say what needs to be said. Supervision of lines and substations in the mon power area needs to change. These are some of the worst people I have ever met. 90 percent of them got where they are by favoritism and being little weasels. They use the threat of hr to whip workers into place. They absolutely do not know their jobs and people who would be good supervision continually...

    Advice to Management

    How about an evaluation of managers and supervisors. Start replacing those who are only there because of who they know.

    I worked at U.S. First Energy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The only pros was the fact it was five minutes from my house and it was full time work.

    Cons

    Here in West Virginia First Energy does not hire on directly with the company. The only way in is through an agency which makes you a contracted employee. You are expected to do the same job as a FE employee but you are paid significantly less without any of the perks. As a contractor you do not get any PTO, bonus incentives, raises, ect. During training they will convince you that you have every opportunity to become...

    Former Employee - Energy Consultant in Brooklyn, NY
    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at U.S. First Energy

    Pros

    Advancement and endless amount of commission

    Cons

    Most of the energy consultants would work 12-14 hour day Monday thru Friday and 6-8 hour days on Saturday and even Sundays for training. Your pay is drawer plus commission. This means that the company would give you a certain amount of money every month. You would have to subtract that amount from your monthly commission to pay the drawer back to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Certain items within the office that could have been delt with differently
