I worked at JEA full-time (more than 10 years)Pros
Excellent benefits. Training opportunities and tuition reimbursement. Good opportunities for advancement in many of the departments.Cons
This is a government agency, so many decisions are based on political considerations. Salary freezes are common, and changes in visions and targets are frequent. Most of the people in this company who are happy are the ones in the core businesses (delivering water, wastewater, and electric services). Those who work in customer service can be very frustrated because the messages from management are often unreasonable and impractical.Recommends
