    a lot of growth and material to learn. you can find yourself in a different position every 2-3 years learning something new.

    new opportunities present themselves as rotations not promotions so you may have to move around and adjust your life with no pay increase. Engineers get paid way below the market average,

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

    Pros

    The company is a leader in energy field.
    The company is growing when others are selling properties.

    Cons

    Old model for employee management and micromanaging is problematic.
    Poor environment for female employees; staff pay is poor, entry level bargaining unit employee will make more than tenured staff that supervises the work.
    Awful work life balance for staff, expected to work 50-60 hours per week with no recognition.

    Advice to Management

    Quit treating workers like school children.
    Respect salaried workers more.
    Modernize and broaden pay scale; utilize staff position levels to help pay discrepancy with hourly workers.
