Transmission Engineering Internship (Former Employee) –  Akron, OHFebruary 5, 2019
Great company to get experience with. The role was more oriented towards a Civil Engineer's background, but they also took in Mechanical and Electrical Engineering students.

The salary and benefits are wonderful.
Instrumentation Technician (Former Employee) –  Shippingport, PAFebruary 3, 2019
The working environment is somewhat toxic. No consideration is given to the opinions and knowledge of the employees in the field. The directives of managers is absolute and without discussion or redress.

Great experience for interns
Engineering Co-op (Former Employee) –  Blairstown, NJFebruary 1, 2019
FirstEnergy Treats their interns very nicely. They prepare you for a permanent position after your final rotation. Unfortunatley the company just downsized generation so that was not the case for me.

Pay is best around, if you can survive the work conditions
NSO (Current Employee) –  Davis BesseJanuary 26, 2019
Current Davis-Besse Security Manager and Superintendent has created a hostile work environment between management and employees.
Lots of forced overtime, so don't make plans to do anything on days off.
Many many young guards with almost no experience creates Error Likey Situations at every turn. Watch your backs. Guards will watch out for themselves and stab you in the back if it saves themselves.
Is a union environment, but union doesn't have say in much what goes on.
There is constantly a chance of the facility being closed down, so don't get comfortable
Pros
Money and benefits
Cons
Hostile work environment from Managers, Lots Forced Overtime

Focused on Safety
Intern (Former Employee) –  Beaver County, PAJanuary 21, 2019
Enjoyed the management and learned a lot. The environment is centered around educating the personnel for the sake of safety. I would not recommend a job with FirstEnergy with anyone who does not have a mindset focused on safety.

Average place to work, but poorly managed
Middle management (Current Employee) –  Akron, OHJanuary 12, 2019
FirstEnergy is the epitome of what’s wrong with corporate America. Employees’ advancement is based on who they know. Senior management protects their friends and creates cushy, high-paying positions for them. Managment is very reactionary as opposed to being proactive. Problems are solved only after they become a crisis. Complaints about managers are only given credence after a good employee leaves. It’s very frustrating for employees who are loyal and want to do their best.
Pros
Compensation is fair, but they pidgeon-hole you into a “position” to keep your earning capacity down.
Cons
Politics, politics, politics.

Decent place to work
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) –  Akron, OHJanuary 10, 2019
First Energy is a decent place to work if you are looking for a long term job. Learn alot there and the environment is what you make it. Hardest part of job is staying motivated.

Ruined by First Energy purchase
Slug (Former Employee) –  Greensburg, PAJanuary 10, 2019
Due to cutbacks and First Energy purchasing Allegheny. Moral of the people actually doing the work has dramatically declined. I worked there for 20 years and it was a great place to work. Now you aren't even a number. Good luck and best wishes to the old timers.

Working in power generation
Senior Technician (Current Employee) –  Oak Harbor, OH 43449January 9, 2019
There is no such thing as a typical day at work. It can vary from 8 - 12 hours a day. Middle management does not get paid overtime. I learned that this is a highly stressful job. I've seen a number of management styles throughout the years. Some are better than others. Right now the primary focus is on the company's bottom line with little consideration for work/life balance. Workplace culture is generally good cooperation between people within a given department. Sometimes it is very difficult to coordinate with other departments and groups. The hardest part of the job is the expectation of near perfect performance all of the time. The most enjoyable part is providing tools for people to move ahead and work within the facility in a safe and efficient manner
Pros
Competative compensation
Cons
Frequently very long (unpaid) working hours

Poor Management and slow pace
Nuclear Security Officer (Former Employee) –  Perry, OHJanuary 4, 2019
Pay and benefits were very good. Management was very poor. They were always looking a way to get you in trouble. Security is the only department that is not unionized

Horrible
Customer Service representative (Former Employee) –  Reading, PAJanuary 2, 2019
Horrible place to work, avoid at all costs. Constant micro managing and if you support the union please be aware you will not have an easy time advancing. Favorite games are still played even with a union in place, also pay and negotiations are a joke.
Pros
None
Cons
Weak pay and sad corporate management

Terrible culture
Senior Nuclear Engineer (Former Employee) –  Akron, OHDecember 21, 2018
The corporate culture was corrosive. The working environment was miserable and it showed in the work that was performed. There was no incentive to do anything better than minimum because you'd either get screamed at for doing too much or screamed at the next time when you weren't able to get it done as quickly as before. Eventually people stop caring...

BILLING & SERVICE SPECIALIST (Former Employee) –  Fairmont, WVDecember 20, 2018
Hard work pays off, work hard and be rewarded. I was fortunate to have awesome supervisors, made it worth coming to work everyday. There were a lot of people I worked with that made it a family environment.

Working with others on a team is very positive and everyone knows the importance of getting things done. Everyone is so kind and friendly always willing to help and learn more. Even the supervisors are awesome they really like to keep you engaged and do weekly pr bi-weekly check-ins.
