    Great potential Early to tell

    Associate Engineer (Current Employee)
    Juno Beach, FL

    ProsGreat benefits (401k and insurance are great)
    Room to become the best
    Rewarding long term

    ConsManagement can be difficult and tend to limit creativity
    May need to stay in a position for a while before offered to move about

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your people and become part of the team, Taking the step away to keep your relationship only about business makes you less approachable and teammates see no point in sticking around.

    Excellent Experience!

    College Intern - Engineering (Former Employee)
    Miami, FL

    ProsI had an excellent time working for FPL as an engineering intern. Work was challenging and rewarding. My manager was top-notch, and was not a micro-manager but was always willing to provide help and feedback to help me grow as a professional. All coworkers were friendly, accommodating and helpful. Highly recommended company if you are looking for work in South Florida.

    ConsThere is a certain barrier, or rift, that exists between engineers and the bargaining unit (union lineman) which leads to a less-than-cohesive atmosphere. This depends on what department you work in, and I believe the same scenario exists if many, if not all, utility companies.

    Pros- Socially, environmentally and ethically responsible

    - Unparalleled benefits package

    Cons- getting a permanent, non-contract position was impossible despite over 2 years of effort and Executive's personal recommendation

    Great place to work!

    Information Security Analyst (Current Employee)
    Juno Beach, FL

    ProsVery flexible with regards to working remotely, the focus is more on whether or not your work is being completed rather than on where or when you work. it is often joked that FPL stands for "Five Person Load" with regards to how much you are expected to acomplish, but in the past couple of years there has been a major push to improve work-life balance and it shows. The quantity of work hasn't changed much but efforts to allow for flexibility in schedule/location have made it much easier to get the job done without sacrificing time with family.

    ConsFlexibility works both ways. there are times when operational demands require late nights and/or weekends.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep paying attention to the employee engagement surveys and keep up the efforts on work-life balance.

    A very responsible company

    Network Engineer (Current Employee)

    ProsGood job security. The company changed it's name to Nextera Energy and it is a very diverse company. It is mostly broken down to Florida Power and Light, which is the regulated Florida division and Nextera Energy Resources which is unregulated power companies outside of Florida. Because of this, it seem to keep us on an even keel. The company has been very fair with me as far as benefits and pay. I started out on a lower scale after being laid off after the telecom bubble burts and took a huge pay cut. It took me 7 years to get back to what I was making, but on the other hand, when my wife had health issues and I needed to be closer to family, the company allowed me to relocate which was a god send. I work with some of the best people in the business and they are very fair about recognizing the people that make a difference vs. the personnel that don't, at least in my department. I plan to retire with this company.

    ConsLike all companies these days, Nextera tries to get the most out of its salaried employees and it is not unusual to work lots of overtime with no compensation other than your yearly bonus. Vacation consists of only two weeks to start with two floating holidays and 8 scheduled holiday days off. Our health insurance is on the expensive side and is Cigna which is not my first choice, but I am glad to have something.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI just hope we keep going down the road and keep the company so diversified. I have noticed recently they we are questioning the cost of things more than previously. Although it seem very responsible and I like that we watch our costs, it seem strange that it comes directly from Upper Management rather than further down the food chain. The one thing that intrigues me about Lew Hay is how in the last 10 years, Nextera is more diversified and we are always looking at new ways to bring in revenue and maintain a good face to the world. I hope that Jim Robo continues to take us down the same road.
