    I worked at NextEra Energy, Inc. (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company as a whole I admire, still do. However the local production site seemed old and forgotten by the huge power giant company based thousands of miles away. The benefits were good, I didn't realize how good until I moved on to my next company which I thought would be better based on position. Overtime pay was excellent! I failed to factor this in when I moved jobs, it really boosts your annual pay. There were pretty good at offering promotion to higher technical levels, however it didn't work for me because I wanted to move up to engineering. That seemed unobtainable.

    Cons

    Struggles between management and technicians made for an uncomfortable environment. There was a lot of pressure from management to complete tasks via checklist yet complete them all in a timely manner, sometime in an impractical time frame. This leads to unsafe behavior which was practically accepted by lower management in order to meet maintenance quotas. Also the 4 days on 4 days off rotating days/nights schedule really started to take a toll on me.

    Advice to Management

    Increase focus on employee moral, I can think of very few that were happy to work there. If I didn't fear the future of my job, I would likely still be there.

    Pros

    Fantastic company, focuses on customer, safety and quality in everything we do.

    Cons

    Could be better career opportunities at Director and above. It's not always the best person that gets the job, its who you know. Some leaders won't take on a leadership role and are more concerned with expending their political capital to position themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on leadership development, move people around to build talent across the business. Many of the VPs have been at the company for a long time and in the same positions for years. Move talent around and diversify talent across business units.
