    I worked at NextEra Energy, Inc. full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits at FPL were very generous, but the pay was at market. Working in the accounting department is interesting and challenging due to the regulatory accounting requirements.

    Cons

    During the years I worked there, there were several rounds of job eliminations, so that made for a stressful work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the company could benefit from better communication with staff regarding the department's vision. I also think there should be more emphasis on career development.

    I have been working at NextEra Energy, Inc. full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Company very strong on safety. I have seen the executives multiple times since I have been with the company. Lots of opportunity for growth and advancement. Troubleshooting and learning is highly encouraged.

    Cons

    Came into a site that had its entire team leave within 6 months for various reasons. There were not a lot of higher level techs to be able to learn from. Also, a lot of the procedures are incomplete or very vague and there are a lot of systems in turbines that have been modified by former techs with no indication of the workaround.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Getting more time to complete training would be a good thing. Otherwise I like the management style and you are very good at listening to what your techs are saying.
