    Positive summer internship

    Intern (Former Employee)

    ProsInternship provided the right mix of training and room for experimentation that allowed me to take a lot away by the end of the summer. All the team members were great to work with and always took time out their day to help me when I needed it.

    ConsNot many negatives here outside the typical large corporation complaints. It can take a while to see movement on a project given the bureaucracy found in companies this large. Compensation wasn't bad for an intern, but wasn't great either.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Highly recommend, very supportive of Employees

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsCompany is focused on growth and continuous improvement. IT and CIO offer an outstanding service model. Lots of opportunities, good pay, and above average benefits

    ConsSome instances of a "boys club" in the company leadership still exist. Company mergers and acquisitions have made consolidation and eliminations necessary so some employment risk

    Great place to work

    Distribution Dispatcher (Current Employee) Tampa, FL

    ProsDuke really seems to invest in their employees. There are many programs available, including tuition reimbursement. If you are motivated, the company genuinely appears to be willing to help you upgrade yourself and your career.

    ConsSome of the more senior employees are not very receptive to Duke wanting to advance both the company and it's employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave a position to assist employees that want to upgrade themselves find applicable programs that would best suit their career goals.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
