    I worked at Progress Energy Florida (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent insurance, paid time off, decent raises cuz they're union and we're forced to. Was not worth it in the end.

    Cons

    Started out great, turned into a "catty" nightmare. Too much gossiping and not enough people doing their jobs properly. No accountability for any of the people in the field. The inmates run the asylum.

    Advice to Management

    How about you be at work sometimes? There's an idea! Too many meetings about BS and no follow thru with your employees.

    I worked at Progress Energy Florida as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Progress Energy seemed to kind of go down the drain after Duke Energy bought Florida Power out. I had been an employee with Florida Power previous to the buy out.

    Cons

    Need to keep up on the maintenance and repairs.

    Advice to Management

    Get some more good folks.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Decent compensation, fair time off practices. Peers tend to be very friendly, but upper management is a very closed group.

    Cons

    Benefits packages leave alot to be desired. They are extremely expensive for family plans and most have a high deductible. Company policy is very dated and does not allow the company to necessarily keep the best performers. The company is from the old school mentality of good old boys club thinking. Many of the middle level management has no clue as to what their job truly is and meddle in others business. There is a large amount of incompetence in middle management.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people more. Many of them know what they are doing.
