    Pros

    Nextera offers a lot in a great geographic area working for Corp HQ. Nextera is a large company with many different businesses.The employees are generally competant and great people to work with. And, with some execeptions, there is a good work-life balance.

    Cons

    There are limited advancement opportunties compared to other companies - e,g . since half the business is a regulated utility (i.e. monopoly) there is limited turnover. Additionally, there is continued pressure to cost costs/jobs rather then grow revenue (it's hard to control the weather). Great place to begin your career but if you can't move up by mid career because of opportunties or politics you probably be better off to work somewhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing but better recognize employees with potential and take chances on them. It's touted that employees are invested in but that seems like exceptions more then the rule.

    I have been working at NextEra Energy, Inc. full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Renewable energy field is growing. Strong focus on diversity and retention of minority / diversity employees.

    Cons

    So so on benefits, medical benefits are average at best, limited mobility for promotions and opportunities unless you have the ear of the senior executives on the 5th floor even though you are a top rated performer. They tend to Push people out the door if you are older and make more than mid range for your pay grade.

    Advice to Management

    Give people opportunities outside of their silos, cross develop people, not only the women and diversity candidates
