    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.

    Pros

    A lot of talented, hardworking people are employed here, and they offer good benefits and decent pay.

    Cons

    Work-life balance, while talked about, is pretty poor. Lots of late nights and weekends, and little compensation for it, either in time or bonuses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The employees, for the most part, want to do a good job. But when they are splitting their attention between multiple projects and deliverables, quality can suffer as a result. Better prioritization would help a lot.

    Great close knit group of people to work with, but technical work was very little.

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

    Pros

    I could ask anyone at the plant a question and they were thrilled to explain things to me because I was the only intern. Formed more intimate relationship with employers and advisers because the most amount of people on site was maybe 30 people maximum at a time.

    Cons

    I was the only intern, so there wasn't a lot of collaborative work with someone of my status. Also, technical work was minimal at the power plant. Job was more focused on project management.

    I have been working at Florida Power & Light

    Pros

    If you work hard, you should be gainfully employed. Pay is good as are benefits

    Cons

    Too political. 9 to 5ers get by without much challenge. Hard workers get brunt of work to offset 9 to 5ers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get closer to what is going on. Get out of offices and "Walk the floor"

    I have been working at Florida Power & Light full-time

    Pros

    They pay well, to a point
    Work from home is allowed on a limited basis
    Co-workers are friendly & helpful

    Cons

    At a certain level, there is no clear career path
    Long hours are expected / assumed
    They are out-sourcing a lot of jobs. When people leave, they tend to replace with contractors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't take your employees for granted.

    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.

    Pros

    Great team members, people enjoy what they do and go the extra mile to make sure things are done right. Benefits are not too bad and management is workin gon work-life balance

    Cons

    Employees are not being valued. Salaries are not matching market and they are takng advantage of the job market situation. Unfortutely when the job market gets better, a lot of employees will leave and knowledge and experience will be out the door. Too bad for a company that used to be really good with it's employees and was open to professional growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. They are the ones who are dealing with the problems and know where the real problem is.

    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.
