Principal Mechanical/Structural Engineer (Former Employee) – Juno Beach, FL – December 7, 2018
NextEra Energy previously named as Florida Power & Light (FPL) provides electric power in Florida. Worked as an engineer in a power producing nuclear plant. Through my tenure, I saw various management styles which all attempted to improve the company. NextEra Energy is a good company to work for..........I took an early retirement to experience other opportunities.
The work I have at NextEra energy resources, Inc. is challenging and rewarding. I work for a contract company which provides healthcare for the NextEra employees and their dependents on site at the 2 main Miami offices. I have Direct Access to provide PT care to patients without a referral for 30 days. However, I have on site providers who refer patients to PT. The offices are pleasant and the teamwork is outstanding.
GRS Technician II (Current Employee) – Iowa – December 3, 2018
Good work life balance with fair management. Benefits are good and starting pay was satisfactory. As with most big companies, some challenges with jumping through hoops and ladders before things happen.
One of the best companies around. they do have some flause but im positive they will fix them throughout their growth. I'ts a good job for someone that is interested in working on electrical/ mechanical environment.
Production Tech Leader (Former Employee) – Sayreville, NJ – November 15, 2018
Working in a Power Plant setting, each day brought new challenges. A typical work day would keep you busy and there was always something to do. It was never a boring job. The management and the co-workers at the plant level were some of the best to work with in my career. The upper and senior management were down to earth people and very easy to talk to. The culture in the company overall was friendly. We all lead by example and performed to the highest standards possible to achieve operational excellence. It what was expected and we were rewarded for a job well done. There was always someone to ask questions if you needed an answer. There was never really a hard part of the job. I enjoyed my time with the company and miss it every day since I left. If it wasn't for wanting to perform a new Power Plant start up, I would still be with NextEra Energy. It is by far one of the best companies I work for and it will remain one of the best because of the people who work for them and the outlook on their future is always going in the right direction.
I went back to school to get my MBA and my Master's degrees; not only have I not moved up in the company, I am on the verge of losing my job. Between downsizing and "politics" the higher ups make it seem like it takes an act of God to climb the corporate ladder; but then you'll see someone come in with the right connections and just skyrocket up.
In the short time I was with the company, I really enjoyed the people and the culture. There is still a learning curve for the accounting group in the Houston office, but the workplace culture makes up for the temporary struggle.
Nuclear Intern (Former Employee) – Palo, IA – October 27, 2018
The work was good, and you learn a lot on the job. Working in the nuclear industry is great, but it can be stressful at times due to all of the rules and regulations needed to keep a plant functioning and safe.
Mid Level (Current Employee) – Juno Beach, FL – October 20, 2018
No advancement for many. There is a real lack of leadership at the lower levels. Everyone is out for themselves. Managers are scared to death to make any errors and will blame staff for their mistakes. Not a good environment for most. If you happen to be liked, you will be fast tracked- Good luck with that. Most never get the opportunities.
Benefits, great Senior Management
No promotions, horrible leadership at a rank and file level.
Wind Technician (Former Employee) – USA – October 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.
Lead Project Engineer Energy Storage (Former Employee) – Juno Beach, FL – October 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.
