    Pros

    Overall, NextEra promotes a inclusive environment and supports work-life balance. Also, company is changing with industry environment.

    Cons

    I've heard of teams where urgency seems elevated and work-life is potentially skewed, but none that I personally have been a part of.

    Pros

    Ethical, good work-life balance, gym and health center located in office as well as cafeteria, relaxed business casual environment (you won’t see anyone walking too fast)

    Cons

    Typical corporate America, pay is average, not a lot of youth in the company, health and 401k benefits are average

    Advice to Management

    Being a VP or above at this company is unbelievably demanding and most employees don’t appreciate how talented our management is. Watching our 401ks explode over the past few years shouldn’t be taken for granted.

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

    Pros

    Decent pay and decent benefits. Not a whole lot else to say about the pros for this company. Lots of change

    Cons

    They preach work life balance but don’t live up to it, every other weekend and two to three weekends a month has turned into the norm. The pay is decent, but not what it should/could be. Everything is changing except for what the lower echelon (technicians) want to change. The management and team work is very poor.

    Advice to Management

    Fire everyone at the top and try again. Figure out how to make a team environment, don’t preach things that won’t be practiced.

    There is no pros to working for this company

    Cons

    If there people tell the same lie it must be true and if four people say the same truth it must be a lie ... direct quote from a manager!

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the nepotism

    Pros

    High salary, good benefits, nice co-workers

    Cons

    Your career will go no where. You will stay in the same position for 30 years. Management prevents you from changing o other departments. I have seen people being taken in ambulances and many people having heart attacks because of this job. very high stress. Management cares absolutely nothing for you. No work life balance at all. Management promises the world and won't deliver.

    Advice to Management

    Deliver what you promise. Say hello to your employees. Don't just want next to them and ignore them.

    Pros

    Good Company to work for, a lot of positive aspects and advancement opportunities

    Cons

    Bad team environment, too many politics and everyone is out to get another instead working together on the common goal. Either you close your eyes to things and do what they want you to do or look for another job

    Advice to Management

    Be real, fair and understanding! Do not take sides just because someone has been there longer than other. Everyone's success counts. Listen, acknowledge, and take corrective actions and measures towards resolution for the success of the department and members.

    Pros

    Career development, monetary incentive policy, education assistance, upward mobility, six sigma culture, senior leadership, strong growth, great employee facilities, community outreach

    Cons

    Older middle management that is struggling to tackle the complex issues of the new energy market. Stuck in the past of how engineering was done in the 80s

    Advice to Management

    Stay on the path of continuous improvement and leverage the younger talent in a team driven approach. Also prioritize the objectives and automate the important daily activities
