    Pros

    Very Professional atmosphere and active management involvement. Safety is of utmost importance and is always the top priority.

    Cons

    Although senior management tries to implement effective communication, It somehow does not filter thru with the same effectiveness thru all layers of company.

    Pros

    A wonderful way to get your foot in the door. There are many many areas of the company that you intern in. All you need is a 3.0 gpa to be considered. The pay is good also, if your a freshmen-junior in college, they start you off at $18-$19 an hour. If your a senior, your wage is $20/hour, and if your a grad student, your pay is $24/hour.

    Cons

    None, that I can think of, besides the fact that they wont pay you over time, but its not really an issue, some weeks you work more than 80 hours, and some you work a little less, so it evens out at the end.

    Pros

    Friendly people, great management staff. South Florida locations

    Cons

    Not competitive salaries for entry level engineers at least. After my internship the other 2 companies who extended me offer letters were 20 and 60% higher pay than fpl.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better the entry level pay if you do not want all the mediocre people graduating from college to end up in your payroll.

    Pros

    The company really strives to hire only the best people, so you are working with a team of talented people who pull their own weight and will help you succeed as well. There was really a great 'family' feeling within the department, and management constantly strove to improve employee engagement -- formal surveys of employees, biannual opportunities to sit with supervisor and discuss how he/she could help you do you job better.

    Organization as a whole has a drive for excellence, so if you are the type of person who enjoys daily challenges (as I did) then you will feel fulfilled here. Communications department works hard to make sure employees are informed and up-to-date which helps the sense of investment you feel in the company. With the size of the company you also have many opportunities to advance your career without ever needing to switch employers.

    *I left my job because of personal reasons and was satisfied with my time at the company

    Cons

    It may depend on your given role, but the work/life balance needs to be improved. Average workday usually included working through lunch and staying 30 minutes to an hour late. Part of this was my team's expectations, part was my own drive to success so I take partial responsibility.

    As such a large organization, oftentimes the approval process was cumbersome and decision making painfully slow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue open communications; continue employee engagement initiatives and promoting a culture of openness between supervisors/employees; strengthen the work/life balance
