    Advice to Management

    I love FPL, It has great people. You walk around and everyone has been there for 3,5,10,20+ Years. It is a company you would like to settle down with. Personally not my perfect fit. I think you guys are doing great.

    I worked at Florida Power & Light full-time

    Pros

    This company only hires the brightest and best. The caliber of people is incredible.

    Cons

    The company doesn’t care about its people. There is poor quality of life and little incentive to move up into supervision because quality of life only gets worse the higher you go.

    I have been working at Florida Power & Light for more than a year

    Pros

    Engaging work until it wasn't.

    Cons

    The majority emloyees were Cuban, male or other hispanic males this being Miami. Very few women. The manager I worked with yelled at me a lot. A lot of contractors and zero opportunity. Upper management was very well compensated but not at the peon level.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe hire more women. There was a lot of dead weight. Despite a lot of people who were smart and accomplishing the impossible upper management was not engaged at all.

    I worked at Florida Power & Light full-time

    Pros

    Solid Benefits and a few decades ago great benefits. Intelligent people work at the company.

    Cons

    The pay is not competitive. The attitude is that you are lucky to work for FPL and a few decades ago when there were less companies here in Florida that may have been true. Way too many people doing very little work, upper management afraid to make decisions for fear of losing the comfy gig. Very top heavy with the people doing the least getting paid the most. The CEO is constantly asking for ways to reduce cost and cuts...

    Advice to Management

    Talent should be fast tracked not based on years of experience but on instinct, ability, work ethic, decision making and value add. People shouldnt be made managers because of how many years at FPL but rather if they want to manage, if they would be good at it, and if they deserve it. Pay better, make sure dead weight it let go and hard workers are promoted up.

    I have been working at Florida Power & Light full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The contractors own all of the work at our company so you don’t do anything as a full time employee. There is no work besides that work that they magically make up.

    Cons

    Management is completely clueless! Constant restructuring occurring! We are contractor heavy. In my experience, the contractors own almost all of the work inside of the GO. It was my understanding that our CIO has requested a ratio of 80% full-time staff and 20% contractors. This is clearly not the case at the moment. This has resulted in GROSS under AND miss-utilization of our current full-time technical talent base....

    Advice to Management

    Cut down on the contractors and give your full-timers meaningful and real work or you will fail in retaining your full time talent!
