    I have been working at Duke Energy full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. There aren't many pros other than the benefits. Many of the company's employees have been there on average for about 25 years.

    Cons

    Being a minority and getting fair/ equal treatment and pay-paid significantly less..

    Advice to Management

    Stop being unfair by hiring based on race and hiring based on "who" you know...

    Pros

    Individual contributors are nice still.

    Cons

    You must use tools that hinder you and any problems are your fault even if there are human error traps built in.

    Advice to Management

    Get and use feedback from your employees. Don't try to solve problems onformed by your experiences from your bunker.

    Pros

    Multi-National company and multiple departments to use transferable skills. Good benefits and pension plan for legacy employees.

    Great work experience before the merger to Duke Energy (previously Progress Energy). Poor internal communications for legacy employees and remote employees. Poor communications for advancements for leadership positions. Poor management and work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Improvement in identifying employee training opportunities and ways to strengthen employees skill sets. Clearer vision for employees for internal advancements for leadership positions. Improved communications for how employees directly contribute to meeting company goals. Management evaluations preformed by employees more frequently. Ensure employees are being evaluated properly and effectively.

    I worked at Duke Energy (Less than a year)

    Pros

    flexible with time in/out. occasionally you could work from home to take care of sick children.

    Cons

    not the company that it used to be. Does not matter if you put forth extra effort or time on a project or continual basis. If they decided the group was not a core component of the company, you would be gone. Lateral moves not much opportunity for growth.
