    Been a great ride....

    Mechanic Millwright (Current Employee)
    Crystal River, FL

    ProsMoney, benefits, great people for the most part...

    ConsWe have been bought out twice... First by CP&L and now by Duke Energy... Seems like the family atmosphere we had when I first started is gone... We always seem to come up short in these buy outs...

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop the GREED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I had to laugh at all the people that felt bad for Bill Johnson, Yall gave him a 44 million dollar severance package for his 2 hours of the new Duke CEO...

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    A great place to get my first internship.

    Intern (Current Employee)
    Crystal River, FL

    ProsEveryone is very helpful. Theres a lot to learn and so many mentors willing to teach. The nuclear atmosphere is very safe and you really feel like the work you are doing is important.

    ConsIn my department, Electrical/I&C Maintenance, there are no opportunities to design and innovate. Work mainly concentrates on maintaining and assuring proper function and safety.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management does a great job interacting with their employees,

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Place to Work!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Lake Mary, FL

    ProsThe professional atmosphere and the flexible work schedules that allow hard work meshed with time with family is a great combination. The opportunities for other jobs within the company continue to grow.

    ConsThe stigma from the public for working for a utility company. No one like to pay utilties bills but everyone at the company is working hard to keep costs down.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    One of the best places I have ever worked

    Electrician (Current Employee)
    Saint Petersburg, FL

    ProsOutstanding benefits, fair pay, and wonderful work environment. The atmosphere is relaxed most of the time and offers most people the chance to voice their thoughts and ideas.

    ConsInformation is not shared in a timely fashion if at all. Some of the working conditions are dangerous and harsh, environmentally speaking, but electricity is inherently dangerous.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProgress Energy has some of the very best management teams I have witnessed, but some low level managers require further experience on how to work with employees. Especially from an equity, fairness, and ethics standpoint.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
