    I have been working at Progress Energy Florida full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    We 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 ManagementAdvice

    Stop 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...

    I have been working at Progress Energy Florida as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Everyone 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.

    Cons

    In 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 ManagementAdvice

    Upper management does a great job interacting with their employees,

    I have been working at Progress Energy Florida

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    The 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.

    I have been working at Progress Energy Florida

    Pros

    Outstanding 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.

    Cons

    Information 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 ManagementAdvice

    Progress 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.
