Great company as long as you get a manager who is not solely out for his or herself

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

Pros

Great Co-Workers, Excellent benefits, Somewhat secure, work is not generally difficult

Cons

There is a lot of change going on with the merger, and managers are too worried about themselves rather than about developing employees. Budget cuts have stopped pretty much all personal development. Recently there has been a loss of the importance of work-life balance

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop trying to CYA, start developing your employees professionally. A simple thank you and good job will go a long way.

    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...
