    I have been working at NextEra Energy, Inc. full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of locations, average benefits, good people outside HQ. Values of folks actually doing the work are great.

    Cons

    The company is fundamentally getting away from what made them successful in the first place. The "Values" they proclaim are left at the door in upper management. Staffing reductions for the last 5 years has made an increased workload and very poor morale everywhere. It's all about the $$$.
    Benefits being reduced every year as well and getting more expensive.

    Advice to Management

    They don't listen anyway...they do an engagement survey every two years and nothing is ever done for the employee.

    Pros

    The managers were amazing at the field office I worked at! They really took care of their people aside from senior management in Houston, outside of those points that’s it.

    Cons

    Expensive and terrible health insurance
    Too many checks and balances to gain approval. TRUST YOUR PEOPLE that’s why you pay them.
    Do a survey and do nothing with it to see what other competitors are paying! You under pay across the board.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to keep good employees, pay them there worth and make them feel appreciated!

    Pros

    Met good friends here, beautiful campus close to the beach, gym, NextEra University, tech savvy

    Cons

    Was excited to work at NextEra but unfortunately was disappointed. My department was poorly managed which resulted and continues to result in high employee turnover. Those who stayed are miserable from lack of work life balance and weekly meetings that talk about unrealistic deadlines that department can never meet. My experience reminds me of expectation vs reality memes...you come for an interview and you get excited about the opportunity and what upper management tells you will work on, but once you start it becomes clear that all of the things that were communicated during the hiring process was a bunch of political BS. That's just rude to waste other people's time like that.

    Advice to Management

    I doubt they care to read any of these reviews or do anything about it. After talking to management directly about my concerns nothing changed. I'm just sad for my former coworkers.
