    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Fortune 150 company, stable, good management structure

    Cons

    Very political. You need to know people to get ahead.

    Advice to Management

    Take more time to find out what your non-union employees want and help to make their jobs more rewarding. The employment cycle is a circle...If the employee is happy she will be more productive...if she is more productive she will make the company stronger...if she makes the company stronger the company makes more money..if the company makes more money they *should* reward the employee more...if they reward the employee more the employee will be happier.


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

    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 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.


  8. Professional, hard working employees.

    I worked at Florida Power & Light

    Pros

    Very intelligent, dedicated employees. A great facility on Juno Beach, with large cafeteria, cafe and gym. Employees are able to review managers, so managers must work to earn their positions. Great care is taken of employees, once they're in.

    Cons

    Processess can take a very long time since company is very concerned with public image, which is understandable, but projects labored over can disappear into the ether.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify procedures where possible.

    Pros

    Friendly people, great management staff. South Florida locations

    Cons

    Not competitive salaries for entry level engineers at least. After my internship the other 2 companies who extended me offer letters were 20 and 60% higher pay than fpl.

    Advice to Management

    Better the entry level pay if you do not want all the mediocre people graduating from college to end up in your payroll.

    Pros

    Location, opportunity, benefits package, safety culture

    Cons

    Large companies have lots of red tape and move slowly when making decisions

    Advice to Management

    Don't get so bogged down in short-term profits and forget about long-term growth.

    Pros

    The company really strives to hire only the best people, so you are working with a team of talented people who pull their own weight and will help you succeed as well. There was really a great 'family' feeling within the department, and management constantly strove to improve employee engagement -- formal surveys of employees, biannual opportunities to sit with supervisor and discuss how he/she could help you do you job better. Organization as a whole has a drive for excellence, so if you are the type of person who enjoys daily challenges (as I did) then you will feel fulfilled here. Communications department works hard to make sure employees are informed and up-to-date which helps the sense of investment you feel in the company. With the size of the company you also have many opportunities to advance your career without ever needing to switch employers. *I left my job because of personal reasons and was satisfied with my time at the company

    Cons

    It may depend on your given role, but the work/life balance needs to be improved. Average workday usually included working through lunch and staying 30 minutes to an hour late. Part of this was my team's expectations, part was my own drive to success so I take partial responsibility. As such a large organization, oftentimes the approval process was cumbersome and decision making painfully slow.

    Advice to Management

    Continue open communications; continue employee engagement initiatives and promoting a culture of openness between supervisors/employees; strengthen the work/life balance
