    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).

    I worked at Florida Power & Light full-time

    Pros

    Decent benefits. Hours were great. If you were at a satellite location, you worked by yourself.

    Cons

    Hired for one location than end up stuck 50 miles away from home in another with no compensation. Never saw the help I was promised. Upper managment will stab you in the back to save themselves and cover up other people's mistakes. Don't expect a warning, expect to be fired. Expect to work 16 to 18 hour days as soon as a major storm hits. No family prep time or clean up time. This company is racist. I can count the how many on one hand in the area I worked in.

    Advice to Management

    Stand up for your employees. Do what you say you are gonna do. Get rid of the surveys if you are only going to hold that against your employees. Each one has its own code for a reason.

    Pros

    Good place to work for a career. Pay is good, hours are good, most people you work with are nice and easy to work with. Overall it's a good place to work.

    Cons

    Many times they preach safety but expect you to do things that they preach you shouldn't do. The insurance has gotten worse over the years but it's like that everywhere. They need to look into some of their policies and change some of them to reflect the times we live in.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to listen to the workers more often and pay more attention to what is going on around them. Stop giving management bonuses for things that could cause unsafe work practices.

    Pros

    Upper management (corporate) advertises the right values and ideals. Benefits are good. High mobility in some departments.

    Cons

    Upper management (site) avoids ownership and creates a hostile work environment. High attrition rate.

    Advice to Management

    Quit holding on to poor managers only for sake of technical experience. Make operations supervisors more mobile so bad eggs can be released. Work to create a "take care of eachother" attitude (and show it in action) at the site management level down to increase retention.
