    I have been working at TECO Energy full-time

    Pros

    Great pay, great benefits! Most employees are happy to be part of the TECO family.

    Cons

    If you're not an engineer, there's not a lot of succession. The recent acquisition by Emera leaves many worried about the future.

    Advice to Management

    Establish succession/progression plans for all positions
