    I worked at Florida Power & Light full-time (More than 3 years)

    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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

    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 Management

    Don't take your employees for granted.

    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 Management

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

    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.

    Only here for the pay check. Exploring options elsewhere.

    Pros

    Benefits are very good. On site gym.

    Cons

    Where to begin....Management never seems to have enough money in the budget for anything more than a 2% pay raise, if you're lucky 2.5%. Yet we win rate cases and constant company wide emails about how much money FPL has. The company is EXTREMELY big on "who you know and if we like you." This is how you advance at FPL. You do not have to necessarily know much about the job. Employees at FPL seem to have no work/life balance. We are currently going through something called "Employee Engagement" this is where the company gets surveyed on various aspects of your experience at FPL (mgmt,work/life balance,etc.) my business unit scored extremely low. They stress how much they want to improve on things but I get the sense it is only to improve scores every two yrs. All in all if you know the right people and/or are apart of management you will probably find this a great place to work.

    Pros

    Good benefits, secure job Close to South Florida. Its decent money but since theres no other competition, they low ball you.

    Cons

    Poor work-life balance, not many training opportunities, too much work for no compensation. Seems like you have to be tied to your phone anywhere you go and at any given moment you have to go and attend work matters.

    Advice to Management

    Strike a better work/life balance, stop being so cheap and pay what the workers have earned. Working here stresses you out and the company does not engage in extra-curricular, team building activities.
