    I have been working at Florida Power & Light full-time

    Pros

    Valuable field experience. Many P&C engineers end up scaling to higher levels in the company or getting picked up by other companies with a solid boost in salary.

    Cons

    Not very social. The FP&L community is a family but if you are working in PnC specifically you will find little opportunity to build your network outside of your service center.

    Pros

    Security and pay. Great atmosphere and very fulfilling. There’s room for growth in the bargaining unit or the management side.

    Commitment in adverse weather. This job is very demanding in the summer and hurricane season. You are responsible for up to 16 hours of work if needed.

    Pros

    The company is in a relatively stable industry (utilities) and the renewable energy side of the business has allowed the parent company to continue to grow revenues and market valuation year over year.

    The reduced business volatility generally translates to more stable employment, meaning there is less incentive for senior management to re-organize the business in a way that would cause layoffs.

    In line with this approach, the company seems to offer benefits to incentivize workers with families to stay with the company for a long-time (for example, pension and 401K match vesting, increased vacation / PTO, and raises) only after being with the company for multiple years.

    This approach allows employees the ability to increase their compensation by staying at the same level or position for many years and only gain broader experience by doing different projects or lateral moves at the same seniority level.

    Cons

    Since headcount growth and staff turnover seem limited, it can often take many years for positions to become vacant that will give others a chance to advance their careers and take on a promotion to a higher-level.

    In addition, since it is a more traditional company, the company does not offer some of the benefits that might be offered my a more modern company to attract younger workers (e.g. additional PTO, flexible /remote working arrangements).
