    I worked at NextEra Energy, Inc. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The health and wellness benefits

    Cons

    It's like high school all over again. Pettiness, insecurities, middle management fostering that type of environment within the group so everyone is basically talking about each other behind their back it's dysfunctional. Don't kiss up and yes your manager even though you know the decisions are wrong you get the boot and I don't mean a trip to Italy.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the dynamics of certain departments and if there is a trend that people are leaving or being let go above the norm in a certain area check your managers because they are the problem.

    Pros

    People at the Point Beach Nuclear Plant are some of the best in the entire U.S. commercial nuclear industry.

    Cons

    Juno Beach personnel who supposedly are responsible for certain site processes and procedures have no interest in being involved until it's almost too late.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the site personnel who have many years of experience with the plant rather than assuming you're smarter than them because you're from corporate.

    Pros

    Self insured - Low stress work environment, great benefits, ability to learn about utility company operations. Salaries are higher than insurance companies by far.

    Cons

    No room for growth. Unclear vision in the claims department. Too much gray area.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the potential when you see it and create opportunities for growth.

    Pros

    Fair amount of job security. Onsite amenities like gym, cafeteria, are good (if you work in a corporate office).

    Cons

    Lower than average pay. Resistance from all levels of management on flexible work arrangements. Slowly forcing employees to work in cattle pens with no regard to productivity.

    Advice to Management

    We aren't getting paid like I-bankers, don't expect us to work like them. Give clearer instructions to your middle level management so the worker bees aren't trying to come up with 10 different intrepretations of what they want.
