    Pros

    The company's stock is performing well. Benefits are OK but all things considered not worth it.

    Cons

    The powers that be, need to spend some money to update the support programs. Stop being cheap. It will improve productivity! The way things are done are very inefficient and are infested with idiosyncrasies ( 'x' has to be done before 'y' but not unless 24 hours has elapsed or it will automatically erase 'z' and keep in mind if 'w' is updated it will change element of all 'x', 'y', & 'z' so it's best if you just start over!). Ladies and gentlemen I just described to you what's known as a "Work Management System", found exclusively @ FPL. We have programs that were designed for windows 95. There are people who sees the way we do things as the best thing since slice bread; they could recall a time when everything was done on paper. Now if that's the standard why do we need computers? Maybe we should dust off the good ole typewriter.

    I have been working at Florida Power & Light full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits, and reasonable opportunity for advancement. They have a high rate of retention, and always "hire from within" first when job opportunities become available. They have a strong culture of safety and put the employees first.

    Cons

    Corporate HQ (and most of the highest paying jobs) are in Miami, FL. Positions are available statewide, but the further you climb the ladder the better the odds are that you will have to live in the area. I realize this isn't a con for everyone, but moving my family to Miami from most other parts of the state would be... nightmarish.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to offer a wider selection of jobs on the west coast, not just in Miami.
