    Pros

    The people here are very helpful and knowledgeable about the business we are in.

    Cons

    This is not an IT company so the IT department is not top priority

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up wiht new technology. Train your employees and get them to use the training instead of relying so much on outsourcing the IT department

    Pros

    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.

    Pros

    This is a very well positioned utility company that rewards its employees, and delivers value to its 47 MM customers.

    Cons

    This is a very regulated industry, and as such, there is a lot of red tape.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the strong leadership

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

    Pros

    Very professional atmosphere and strong active co-workers. Co-workers are the best reason to work with Florida Power and Light. Good work location, every other Friday off.

    Cons

    Only ~3% average yearly salary increase. Currently performing company wide layoffs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With the current layoffs and cost cutting measures, not recommended because they will cut too deep and work life balance will take a bigger hit.

    I worked at Florida Power & Light full-time

    Pros

    Good professional colleagues who are a pleasure to work with. Almost made the grueling hours worth it. Misery loves company.

    Cons

    Replacing older workers through layoffs and attrition with much younger workers. Everyone in Marketing & Communications is overworked. Most work more than 50 hours per week with no overtime pay because they are all paid straight salary as they are misclassified as exempt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk the walk. Make sure each department is creating an environment where work/life balance is possible.

    Current Employee - Protection and Controls Engineer/Engineer II (Intern) in Miami, FL

    I have been working at Florida Power & Light as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    A wonderful way to get your foot in the door. There are many many areas of the company that you intern in. All you need is a 3.0 gpa to be considered. The pay is good also, if your a freshmen-junior in college, they start you off at $18-$19 an hour. If your a senior, your wage is $20/hour, and if your a grad student, your pay is $24/hour.

    Cons

    None, that I can think of, besides the fact that they wont pay you over time, but its not really an issue, some weeks you work more than 80 hours, and some you work a little less, so it evens out at the end.
