Pros: great work environment, good pay, good management, great benefits
Cons: it went by way too fast.
Its hard to summarize 35 years in to just a few sentances. Working at Tampa Electric was the thrill of a lifetime. I held many positions during my career. The company gave me the opportunity on 3 occasions to create, develop, staff and operate 3 different new departmments. I doubt anyone during my 35 years had that opportunity. The company allowed me to develop not only departments, but as an employee and as a mature adult. Most of my employees were college graduates and they too were seeking careers not just jobs. It was challenging, frustrating and fun. When I reached retirement age in 1995, the company was shifting gears going into a new direction and they needed capital, so along with 350 others we were offered retirement.
