    Pros

    Company cared about your advancement and put you on a track to succeed

    Cons

    Management needed to back up employees more on different issues. Quick to fold and allow employees to be thrown under the bus

    Advice to Management

    Try to listen to employees more and their concerns and back up your team

    Pros

    Good benefits, some quality lower level managers

    Cons

    The job isn't very satisfying if you went to a more challenging engineering school. Work is tricky at best but does not get very challenging.

    Pros

    The hours are flexible. The pay is good. Great benefits.

    Cons

    88% of the customers that call the call center are negative so the job is not for the weak minded. If you know how to compartmentalize your life you'll be okay.

    Pros

    Fair working environment. Best part are the majority of co-workers are very talented and good workers. Benefits are aligned with the industry average.

    Cons

    Orientated to the short term outlook. Employees are expected to support organization with little regard for work life balance. Salary has been flat for many many years.

    Advice to Management

    Need to spend more time listening to employees that have long term view on company and want success for the next generation. Discussions are tokens and executives should engage.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are great! With the OT we end up working as a groundworker I do pretty well for myself. There's plenty of advancement opportunities as well!

    Cons

    I can not think of any cons, pursay, I feel blessed to have gotten this job with such a great company!! Both my father and stepfather work for or have retired from the company as well.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps open up more apprenticeships in fields besides lineman. Not everyone is cut out for being a lineman and it'd be nice to have more options for an apprenticeship with the company.

    I have been working at Florida Power & Light (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A stable Fortune 500 company that pushes for continuous improvement while being concerned about employee health, safety and general well being.

    Cons

    Being such a large company, decision making is sometimes long in the making due to multiple vettings and stakeholder reviews. Somewhat bureaucratic.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Keep growing. Keep acquiring new / strong companies and employees. Free up the decision making power at lower levels of management.

    Pros

    Benefits, salary and they care about work life balance. You are always going to have employees complaining about some things at work. As someone who has worked for many large companies in the last 5 years and looking in from the outside, Florida power and Light is one of the best companies to work for and the benefits are great. The company as a whole and their recognition to their employees is also great and not seen in other companies that much anymore.

    They are many employee benefits beside health benefits, to many to go over. One big one I like is FPL will pay you to be healthy and learn to live a healthy life.

    Cons

    Not really a con but in a storm or potential storm everyone has a job function and you may be required to work through that storm. The salaries are good and I believe they include this small inconvenience.

    Advice to Management

    I can only speak for my department. My management staff is great and they make sure I am not overwhelmed and that we have a work life balance.

    Cons

    Not much opportunity for advancement.
