    I have been working at JEA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pension. And the fact that I no longer work at JEA.

    Cons

    Management. Culture. Work ethic. Politics. Lack of integrity. Lack of respect for employees. Intelligence. Hatred among departments.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves. And do it immediately. Leadership team looks and acts like a Trump rally - who all hang their hats on somehow not bankrupting a utility with no competition. You've created and promoted the most emotional selfish culture I've ever experienced. 40% of the company could retire with full benefits tomorrow and leave the company decimated - yet the CEO and exec team don't have a single inkling how they would manage it - other than joining the mass exit. The cherry on top is that HR and upper management are all lifers and buddies. If integrity were personified, it would promptly starve to death at JEA.

    Pros

    Great training opportunities. We would be sent out for training up to 3 times a year. Also had online training. Had opportunities to learn and apply New skills.

    Cons

    No chances for advancement. Was told that I would be hired permanently as soon as a position became available but manager did not follow through on the promise.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more flexibility in schedule for employees. Promote and hire talented people not ones who you like!

    Pros

    Good work life balance, vacation plan, decent pay and bonuses. Some room to move around the organization.

    Cons

    Was too tied to local politics to make good business decisions. Lots of union mentality throughout. Hard to hold people accountable. Not a forward thinking company.

    Advice to Management

    Tough to say - the worst component was being tied to the city, who constantly try to use JEA to generate revenue. If you can separate, do so.
