Interesting place-but as time goes by, pay raises less
CHEMISTRY SPECIAIST - LEVEL 3 (Former Employee) –  NEXT ERA-PBNP - TWO RIVERS, WIJuly 8, 2016
I worked at Next-Era-PBNP for ~10 years in the Chemistry Group. When on call, fine. But when others on call, I was called instead-hard to think clearly when called at 2:00-3:00 am Monday mornings. Many times when called, just told OPS I'll be in for work in 15 minutes. Then you spend your whole 8-10 hour shift at Next Era-PBNP with no overtime compensation. The people I worked with were great in OPS, Maintenance and HP. But if you weren't part of the "good old boys club in Upper Management", you were left out in the cold. Summation - all the worker bees, lower and middle management people were great. Upper Management really requires "readjustments".Also WAY TOO MANY PROCEDURES!
Pros
I RECEIVED A PAYCHECK
Cons
SHORT BREAKS OR NO BREAKS

Company dedicated to investors.
Engineering Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Two Rivers, WIMarch 28, 2016
NextEra Energy is a strong company with a range of ownership across the United States. They are one of the major players when it comes to clean energy and providing competitive electricity at the lowest cost possible. Very professional work environment. The company struggles to be proactive at times and works best in a near-continuous 'crisis management' mode. Staff reductions have some Regulators concerned about the safe operation at some power plants. The age of some plants is also a concern for long term employment. Strong loyalty is preferred over personal integrity in some instances. If people work hard and do the right thing, that is sufficient and expected. Overall a very safe company to work for but they have to survive a tough electrical power provider and utilities environment with significant competition from Excelon and Dominion.
Pros
The company values technology upgrades to maximize efficiency.
Cons
Continued employment can be a challenge during tough economic times.

Lead jobs, order necessary parts and consumables (Current Employee) –  Based out of Reese MichiganJanuary 28, 2016
Nextera energy resources is a great company to work for. The travel demands for the central maintenance is the only reason I am actively seeking other employment. Being home 12 weeks a year sure does earn you a great living but work life balance is something to be considered sooner or later.
Pros
great safety culture, great wages, advancement opportunities, great training oportunities.
Cons
80% travel. 4 weeks on the road, 1 week home

Employee Concerns Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Two Rivers, WIFebruary 19, 2015
A typical day is busy doing meaningful in an environment with strong nuclear safety culture. Management communicates well both vertically and horizontally. Training programs are well designed and appropriate for the tasks and train workers at the right level. An enjoyable aspect of the experience is an opportunity to see and learn from work done right, i.e. a chance to see the right picture,
Pros
Good place to work, learn and grow in your career field.

Fair compensation for the responsibilities associated with work.
Wind Technician leader (Current Employee) –  Ruthton, MNApril 3, 2016
On a typical day you access the condition of the site with turbines requiring repair, wind conditions scheduled service and training obligations. You plan your day, week, month and year based on a goal of maximizing availability, minimizing cost.
You maintain an efficient site by:
1. Scheduling work so repairs are performed proactively
2. Provide accurate information to engineers and senior leaders so informed decisions can be made for managing the site.
3. Maintain an engaged relationship with staff so safety concerns can be mitigated and a policy of using vetted procedures can be maintained.
4. By being aware of site needs for inventory and the possibility of delays due to procuring parts, scheduling contractors, extreme weather or road restrictions. These situations require flexibility so you can obtain your goals by contacting alternate vendors or having contingent work plans.
Pros
The industry is important for environmental stewardship.
Cons
Wind Towers are exposed to difficult weather conditions

Excellent Company/ Long hours
Lead Wind Turbine Technician II (Current Employee) –  Williams, AZJuly 14, 2013
Excellent company to work for - Outstanding benefits which include Med/Dental/Vision/Life. Matching 401k, Pension, Paid Vacation and sick days, Employee discounts, Yr end bonus based on performance .
On average you'll work 50 hrs per week, the job is physically and mentally challenging. Most of your work is performed outside and at heights above 300 ft. You will work in extreme weather.

Job also requires plenty of admin type work which can be difficult to do when you have actual technical work to do.

Best part of the job is working on turbine because you work at your own pace and you don't have someone monitoring what you are doing IE looking over your shoulder.

Worst Part of job - Climbing and the physical aspect of the job- You work with extremely heavy parts, climbing one turbine is the same as running 3 miles. Being on-call every other week and getting called in late at night after working a full shift.

The pay is good - You need to be in excellent shape and you can't have physical problems like bad knees/back etc.
Pros
Pay, Benefits, Safety
Cons
Physically hard, Work/Life Balance, Politics
