Great Paying Job
Control Room Operator (Former Employee) –  Boron CaliforniaAugust 17, 2018
The pay and benefits are great for the area and plenty of time off. The Jobs are great and the safety culture theory is top notch. Organization, being fair and care for employees could use some work.
Pros
pay and benifits
Cons
short to no breaks, favoritism

Something new everyday
Field Service Technician (Former Employee) –  Limon, COAugust 14, 2018
Always a new development of skill. Not repetitive work which makes the job environment exciting and challenging. Management is pretty cool and they always encourage you to complete your online training to move up in opportunities and to get a raise. Very easy if you concentrate and apply yourself. Can be labor intensive at times can also be very lay back at other times.
Pros
Raises, benefits, 401k is 7% matched
Cons
Work in the cold and hot extrme weather. Long hours can be unfriendly with life and work balance

Good place
Lead Engineer (Former Employee) –  West Palm Beach, FLAugust 13, 2018
This was a good place work due to the people of course and the culture that developed; this has something to do with the location too, being in Florida helps the culture since going to places and socializing is very common. Management seems to be too focused on makeing the numbers (i understand, it is a business), but some flexibility with the employes could achieve better results.
Pros
Culture, Location, Tuition (outside and on-site), bonus
Cons
Not so flexible with schedule, hard to get promoted

Expensive Health Benefits
Project Controller (Former Employee) –  Juno Beach, FLAugust 9, 2018
Group health insurance offered by Nextera was very expensive. It is also a deductible plan and not a copay plan. Was not expecting such a large profitable company to have insurance so expensive.

Great company
Production Tech-Mechanic (Current Employee) –  Indiantown, FLAugust 4, 2018
Great company, benefits are about industry standard, could be better, could be worse. Great work environment. Safety is king within the company (almost ridiculous) but needed for the type of work and dangers involved in working on/with/around power plant equipment
Pros
Bosses buy lunch, laid back when allowable, great pay
Cons
Benefits could be better, but they’re good enough

They are a high paced company but take care of their employees
Wind Turbine Technician (Current Employee) –  Carlock, ILJuly 26, 2018
I like what I do at NextEra energy but I’m always looking to advance my skill whether it be in the Wind Turbine business or another field. I would suggest NextEra to anyone looking to get into working on wind turbines due to their compassion for employees and their drive to be the best at what they do.

Terrible company for young engineers to grow and advance.
Nuclear Engineer (Current Employee) –  Seabrook, NHJune 20, 2018
Supervisors care more about spending more time in the office than effectively completing work. The culture of this organization is downright depressing and is prevalent throughout all locations.

Stock price before People
Accounting Technician (Former Employee) –  Juno Beach, FLJune 18, 2018
NextEra is quite open about its lack of concern for its employees. Expect to figure things out, with very little training or support. Employees appear unhappy for a reason. Pay is quite lower than industry average, and employees are viewed as dispensable by management. Bullying by fellow employees and management is quite common.
