    Pros

    Good company with interesting work where employees make a real contribution to society. Salary and benefits and the workplace environment are excellent for the area. Company supports local good causes with money and volunteers.

    Management tends to be brought in from other subsidiaries of the parent company, The Southern Company, to gain experience, and then they move on.

    I have been working at Gulf Power full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Benefits are fantastic! Pay is good too compared to the area.

    Cons

    It’s definitely a company. You do feel a bit processed sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    They are doing good for what they are but it would be nice to have a little more real and a little less politics. The recent layoff has also been a real damper. I might have a bit of a skewed opinion due to how recent this took place.

    Pros

    Great work environment. Very family oriented. Only left to go be a stay at home mom.

    Cons

    Most position will require a four year degree even if you have 25+ years of experience and know more than a person with a degree

    I worked at Gulf Power full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    It was a good paying job and you were treated well. The management staff took the time to listen to any concerns and were quick to respond.

    Cons

    Having to walk over 10 miles a day under all weather conditions. You were often challenged with areas that made you feel uncomfortable and unsafe as well as animals that had potential to harm. There were some Saturdays when it was mandatory to work. This proved difficult when completing a college degree.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to treat your employees well and respect the work they perform. Many of these jobs are performed under adverse conditions and it helps to feel appreciated.

    Pros

    The people and work environment

    Cons

    When you're not a permanent employee, trying to become permanent is a bit of a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes a good worker is right I front of your eyes and letting the technicalities of "required testing" will cause you to get rid of valuable employees
