High Stress Environment
Wind Technician (Former Employee) –  USAOctober 16, 2018
Majority of the company is set up to benefit Juno Beach management, everyone else is expendable and treated as such. Constant push to cut cost and provide "shareholder value" means assets are ran with minimal staffing and unrealistic expectations.
Pros
Supportive Lower/Middle Managers
Cons
Incompetent Upper Management

Lead Project Engineer Energy Storage (Former Employee) –  Juno Beach, FLOctober 8, 2018
There is no on boarding process for new hires, with many land minds to navigate on your own is risky as there are many Job ending mistakes that are often made.
The people are nice, but everyone looks out for themselves.
Management has high expectations that are rarely communicated.
There is an onsite gym that is a bit pricey but a nice amenity.
Pros
On site gym
Cons
High expectations with no communication.

Administrative Specialist III (Former Employee) –  Perryton, TXAugust 28, 2018
I enjoyed my time at NextEra, but when a contract employee is hired, they dont often get hired on long term post-construction. Once construction is complete, they look for "more qualified" candidates to take over and don't always keep you hired on.
Pros
Flexible schedule
Cons
Temporary

Very interesting but management....
Wind Field Service Technician (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXAugust 20, 2018
Management is garbage and most know we aren't paid well for it, only in overtime does it become worth it, and they are lowering that to. Terrible work life balance is the new way of life. Used to be a great company with managers who cared, then literally 4 chains in my command jumped ship and it all started going down hill. Very sad how far it's fallen. Those 4 chains in my command and over a dozen have quit since. It's apparent why.
Pros
Annual bonus, annual raise is decent, no set breaks, if you're tired take a 5, GREAT Co workers. Good for single people. Excellent experience on multiple wind technologies.
Cons
Work rotation 4weeks on one week unpaid if you decide to not work, home week NOT set in stone, Managers can reprimand if you decide to go home, Managers Used to only be able to politely ask for you to extend your work rotation, now they can reprimand, low pay compared to similar jobs with same cert requirements, managers and many supervisors are only out for themselves, Preaches safety and no production pressure, is 100 percent production pressure and will micromanage to the max.

Very dictatorial environment - no concept of Team
Enterprise Risk - Nuclear Power Project Manager (Former Employee) –  FloridaAugust 19, 2018
Very poor dictatorial leadership. No business acumen and many carry their US Nuclear Navy command and conquer approach to civilian workplace. It doesn't work. Many things said would have gotten people fired where I had worked elsewhere.
Pros
Great pay and benefits
Cons
Poor Cro-magnon culture

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.
