    I have been working at TECO Energy (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Freedom to grow as a professional through small projects. Allowed for growth in project management as well as training and data analysis

    Cons

    Not many cons. Building could use upgrades to improve aesthetics. Lacks a strong family atmosphere. Could be worse but far from perfect.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Stop putting all the work on your techs to fix your mess, and get organized about training and operations.

    I have been working at TECO Energy full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, that's all I can think of.

    Cons

    MICROMANAGEMENT! If you like to be treated like a kindergartner than this is the place for you! Wouldn't surprise me if employees needed to start raising their hands just to use the bathroom

    Advice to Management

    The Miami office is such a poorly run location. The management there borders between incompetent and sadistic, TECO/EMERA really needs to clean house there and lose the current managers in that office.

    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

    Pros

    Everyone is pleasant and willing to say hi or help. Schedules are flexible. People treat eachother like family. Gym, food, and snacks are great benefits. Pension.

    Cons

    Not a hometown company anymore since being sold out to Canada which is very disappointing. I joined TECO to work for my neighbors, and now they work for Canadians who are always on a fire drill. What was once a laid back, slow paced, family environment, is now a stressful, burnt out, scared for your job environment.

    Advice to Management

    Stop overworking employees! Not everything is a fire. Also, Emera needs to allow for more resources that are needed in certain areas. Some departments don't have enough work to do while others are working overtime every day and it's burning everyone out. Prepare for higher turnover.

    Pros

    Name recognition, pizza parties, good training.

    Being crushed by the Benedict Arnold oops Ramil selling his soul to a Canadian company. So all long time employees are fleeing and incoming employees are just temps anyways.

    Advice to Management

    Hope you like your soul burning forever, because you cant take your cash filled pockets to the underworld
