The company offers matching on employee 401(k) contributions, in addition to a pension plan. There is also full medical, dental, and vision coverage. Employees say "there is plentiful overtime pay" and "an annual bonus." They also note that there is "opportunity for individual growth," and "solid practices in place to ensure the work is done properly." Workers highlight that "the people who have longevity with FE are the best group to work with, hands down." However, some find that "occasionally a project will have unreasonable demands requiring long hours or near-impossible deliverables," and the "company lacks direction, focus, and leadership capabilities in management." – less
