    FPL going downhill fast!

    Systems Administrator (Current Employee)
    Juno Beach, FL

    ProsThey have pension, 401k matching, annual bonuses and great medical and dental benefits.

    ConsThe CEO Jim Robo is running the company into the ground on the employee side. He is stripping as many benefits as he can in order to save the company money as well as laying off a large part of the workforce while expecting employees to work harder and longer. Meanwhile his salary and bonus and other benefits are in the millions. A once great company where many employees were lifers is now turning into a place where good employees want to flee as soon as other positions at other companies in the area become available. As the economy gets better and more external job opportunities arise there will be a brain drain and an mass exodus of experienced employees. That will harm the company's ability to operate efficiently and end up costing the company more money in the long run. Jim Robo's short sightedness and greed has made this a miserable place to work.

    Also, the CIO, Lakshman, is a useless puppet that does nothing helpful to the IM department. The employees and management see right through him. "Meets is the new exceeds" is his motto for annual reviews which ultimately makes the employees put forth no effort at all to get a increased bonus as it is far too difficult to achieve. He should be replaced ASAP!

    Advice to Senior ManagementSaving money by eliminating under used facilities, replacing all printers with Ricoh printers are great ways to save money without effecting employee moral, but eliminating home internet reimbursement and offering low percentage raises and the like is detrimental to company moral and will cost the company more money in the long run. Treat your employees better, like the way FPL has historically treated its employees - like valuable members of the company and not a necessary evil to make the executives wealthier.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Satisfied But?

    Senior Business Analyst (Former Employee)
    Juno Beach, FL

    ProsGood benefits and compensation. Good work environment.

    ConsImprove on a mentoring program. Management could have a better relationship with employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFilter down your game plan so lower level employees understand where you are going. Words like transparency and accountability do not mean a lot.

    Great opportunities available, but the mindset and culture is fundamentally flawed.

    Engineer (Current Employee)
    Juno Beach, FL

    Pros-Decent salaries, but depends where you live. In a populated area, the salary won't go far.
    -Great opportunities are everywhere to learn many different facets of the industry
    -Great people work here, many intelligent, humble, team players are found throughout.
    -Decent benefits, 401K, pension, vacation days, etc.

    Cons-Culture rewards workaholics. If you want to move up prepare to give up your personal life.
    -Upper management's expectations are flawed and misguided.
    -Fear is the typical motivator found throughout. History has proven that those that question decisions or offer comments not in sync with the message from above are quickly removed.

    Advice to Senior Management-Welcome an environment of disagreement, even if someone is wrong with their ideas or opinions, having an honest conversation with your direct reports may open new avenues of thought.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
