    I worked at Florida Power & Light as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    This company cares about the happiness and success of each individual through the creation of career goals providing excellent training and game plans for reaching those goals. In addition, the exposure I received as a intern was incredible. Not only did I gain plant experience but the program is aimed at creating well rounded individuals in the work place. I was exposed to many different areas of the business while each was explained in depth. They find and develop great leaders which is why this company has had so much success and growth in the last decade. A bright future exist for anyone willing to take hold of every opportunity presented.

    Cons

    After reflecting on the experience, I can say in full honesty that there was not a single con.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This internship program is phenomenal and the people that I worked with created the most comfortable and productive environment I've ever been witness to.

    I worked at Florida Power & Light full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, nice facilities, mostly good people. Advancement is not difficult if you are motivated. There is plenty of training offered. Benefits packages are above average.

    Cons

    No work/life balance. You are pretty much expected to stay at your desk until all tasks are finished. Weekends and holidays will have to be worked because deadlines will not be moved. Also plan on moving vacations if they don'd line up with company needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make work/life balance a priority (more than just words). Hire more people if needed.

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

    Pros

    Competitive salary and benefits, environmentally conscience, opportunities for advancement based on merit

    Cons

    There is very limited job specific training and most of the training is OJT. It can be difficult to find a work-life balance due to several staffing reductions over that past few years (less people, same amount of work). While the salary and benefits are competitive, it is very expensive to live in the Juno area and more affordable housing is at least 45-60 mins away.

    I have been working at Florida Power & Light full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Saving 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.

    Good benefits and compensation. Good work environment.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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