Nextera Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
NextEra Energy, Inc. is an energy company with about 45,900 megawatts of generating capacity, revenues of over $17 billion in 2017, and about 14,000 employees throughout the US and Canada. It is the largest electric utility holding company by market capitalization. Its subsidiaries include Florida Power & Light, NextEra Energy Resources, NextEra Energy Partners, Gulf Power Company, and NextEra Energy Services.
According to WIKIPEDIA In August 2018, NextEra Energy received a cease and desist order by Oklahoma state officials concerning the construction of wind turbines violating state law. The Oklahoma state law, which took effect in May 2018 to protect open air space, states that developers obtain either a "no hazard" determination for each turbine from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) or work out a mitigation plan with the United States Department of Defense (DoD), and then submit a notification of such with the Oklahoma Corporation Commission before construction may begin. NextEra Energy had filed obstruction evaluation cases for the construction of wind turbines in Oklahoma with the FAA in March 2018, but the FAA had yet to issue determinations at the time that the cease and desist order was issued.
Former Employee - Financial Analyst says"The attitudes and overall culture of the department my job was in was awful. People were always crabby and RUDE. I have never seen so many narcissistic people in one department. I left because I couldn't take it anymore and very happy with my decision."
Current Employee - PGD Engineering says"We got email that they will install motion detector under our desks. This is only for engineering floor. If you are not engineer you are safe."
Current Employee - Executive Team Leader says"Not a great place To work"
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says"No work life balance. Do your job and keep your head down. Aging, constantly failing equipment with no compensatory measures in place. Workers forced to sit in unsanitary 90+ degree environments for over 6 hours at a time. Instead of actually fixing the fire alarm system they have security doing fire patrols when they should be protecting vital assets at the plant."
Former Employee - Quantitative Analyst says"Mostly middle aged, mostly white, mostly male trading desks Extremely high turnover at the bottom of the ladder Diversity seem mostly at the bottom of the ladder where people are treated very poorly in an effort to “train” them to “make it”"
Former Employee - Home Service Coordinator says"Unfair pay, favoritism, liars, not appreciated for going above and beyond your job duties off the clock to help out technicians and customer service reps. Definitely no equal treatment for like offenses. You better kiss butt and suck up if you work out of the Tequesta Office."
Former Employee - Finance says"Toxic Culture. This company has THE most narcissists working in one place. The departments in corporate will bury you in useless meetings, and pet projects that are difficult to understand the point. If you are considering a position, DO NOT. This is where careers come to die. Its a shame."
Former Employee - Director says"As a woman, it was the most toxic and demeaning work environment I have ever known. The company ignores all process and policies (HR is a joke) and lets the male leadership do whatever they want to their female employees."
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says"Smartpath is a vendor to Nextera for financial wellness. I don't believe Nextera has done anything or cared to do anything after complaints were made. I guess our ethics hotline is a joke."
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says"My complaint is with SmartPath. I reported to Nextera SmartPath's CEO Alok Deshpande for making uncomfortable advancements towards me during one of our seminars. Nextera simply ignored it. They are willing to allow men to do whatever they want to women. I guess were still stuck in the 50s."
SELLING TECH (Former Employee) says"In my opinion, a cancer has developed at jupiter-tequsta ac, now known as FPL Home Services since acquisition. A person, N.V. Whom was fired from ecm, now runs the show. Systematically he has turned a great company into a toxic environment. If you worked with him at ecm you know what I mean, and the reason you left probably. He has already taken the lead in firing staff who he doesn't like & bringing in people from his previous employment, instead of hiring from within . They also enjoy writing people up for the silliest infractions, just so they have a paper trail to fire you later. Sad thing is you are unaware you are doing something wrong in their eyes because of poor leadership and communication. Ecm man also has taken the liberty of reducing task codes for employees pay, raise prices to customers, and cut commissions to employees. Isn't that special !!! Upper management is either shielded from this or naive. In closing, stay away unless you are one of ecm mans favorites or it will be the worst job you ventured into. Beware of FPL Surge Shield Scam, sales techs get approx. $60 per sign-up. They just want additional residual income from all their fpl accounts. You do the math, $14.95 (X) millions of fpl customers per month. Another scam is their, air quality products,they are over priced so salesmen/ techs get minimum of $200 per sale. They are self serving and laughing all the way to the bank with your money. Culture? All self-serving just to make themselves feel better. All the posters hanging in jupiter office are all lies. Pseudo culture in reality."
Renewable Resource Specialist (Former Employee) says"Get blamed for everything and expected to kow tow to the culture there. Get immediately scrutinized to the point that you feel uncomfortable to do the work."
Construction Manager/Superintendent (Former Employee) says"As a subcontractor through Bartech over 2-1/2 years, I managed millions of dollars worth of electrical construction in the field. I have never experienced a more toxic work environment. There was no mechanism to fund items needed in the field-we were expected to fund things out of pocket. The Juneau Beach staff reviewing expense reports would then deny entirely legitimate expense claims, even with receipts. I later learned this staff would high-five each other when they rejected one of our expense claims. I was told by my manager that I could not enter more than forty hours per week, even though we were behind schedule and working sixty hours. NextEra owes me at least 200 hours of unpaid overtime. One of my coworkers was told I was let go because "they're getting rid of all the old guys." After I was terminated, they sent me an invoice for $3,600 in repairs to a leased light-duty truck with bald tires that was simply not up to the off-road driving required to do my job. But the most frustrating thing was watching this company squander literally millions of dollars monthly through sheer managerial incompetence, while trying to claw back pennies from the same field people responsible for their success. Avoid this company like the bubonic plague."
JR. ASSOCIATE PROJECT MANAGER (Former Employee) says"Unfortunately, I have spent the last year and half working for major companies that seem to have no structure and lack of leadership. There is barely any training provided for the new hires by Manager. New Hires are left alone for weeks at a time to figure out their role and no real outline on job details at hand or guidance by Management. I understand that most companies expect for you to take of running but this like many others felt more like a shark tank. Very minimum training on companies processes and procedure and high expectations from the candidates with no clear vision."
Contractor through KForce (Current Employee) says"So I'm a contractor at NEE but work in Cybersecurity like an employee. I have never worked for a manager so controlling, micromanaged, berating, insulting, and overall mean, unpleasant, unfair and horrible to others in my life as here. In the last 6 months 3 people left without having found another job and two others who did find new jobs first, for a 60% turnover in staff in 6 months about. The only reason I stay is because I have an adult child that needs me to care for him due some mental illness. If I was on my own I would walk out the door tomorrow. I search every day for a new job. I have been working for over 40 years, and as I approach 62 this man demands I fill out a daily activity log to account for ever minute I work, treating me like a child because Im in another office and he needs to control every minute of my day. Anyway, in 40 plus years of working for all kinds of people, some very good and others not so much and having been a manager of people in a few past jobs myself, this guy is light years ahead of anyone for being the worst person to ever manage people EVER, whom Ive come across and has no right being in charge of people. The fact that NEE allows this type of person to manage 9 to 10 people (depending on who quits this week) means that it's a company willing to tolerate extraordinarily poor managers or they are out of touch with how badd things are. Either way I will not and can not support working for a company that condones the mis treatment of staff.Some very smart people and a beautiful building and environment.being treated bad by an abusive and disturbed boss"
Site Administrator (Former Employee) says"Solar site completed management staff has moved on to other locations. Not the best place I've ever worked. I would not recommend me saying anything additional since I was not happy there.Free lunchLocated in the middle of nowhere"
Accounting Technician (Former Employee) says"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."
Contract Coordinator (Former Employee) says"The Managers priorities were not about the skills the person has for the job, but for her insecurities. This did not change despite the fact that their department lost a lot of money. She verbalized that she hates skinny women.the moneyMisrepresentation of job description"
Tax Analyst (Former Employee) says"excessive stress and nothing much to learn. no appreciation for the good work but a lot of criticism for inability to meet illogical deadlines high turnover due to excessive stress expected to work without relevant training"
Wind Technician (Former Employee) says"They were not interested in fixing wind turbines all they cared about was do temporary fixes keeping there production numbers up You don't fix things with glue and zip ties when comes to any mechanical issues !!! I have been to other sites all over the USA and yes they run there sites the same way. I will never work for them again!"
Sr Revenue Accountant (Current Employee) says"Good-old boy, buddy system. No one to speak your concerns with, all are friends and cover up for each others mistakes. Unfair treatment within the company. No room for career advancement, wrong people in key slots.Salary is okManagement is very cut throat, lack tools to properly complete tasks"

Job Applicant (Former Employee) says"Went to an interview on Wed and actually stayed there for over 4 hours only to be emailed today that I wasn't selected for a $12 an hour position as a customer service Rep. I'm okay with that but the review is being written because this was the worst, most unprofessional interviewing process I have ever encountered. To take 4 hrs and 45 mins to interview for this particular position was an absolute waste of time. There was no organization when it came to the face to face interview. After seeing this and receiving the email today, I'm glad I dodged the bullet. To feel that its okay to keep people in an interview that long is inconsiderate and once again , profusely unprofessional.They had muffins, cookies, and waterGroup interview times, no organization with face to face interview"
Billing Supervisor/Energy Efficiency Consultant (Former Employee) says"For the period of time that I worked there, it was good. I do not agree with some of their policies and the way they treat and fire people.Thats all."
