    I have been working at Duke Energy full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Career development - they allow you to rotate relatively easily around the company to allow you to get a pretty good experience.

    Cons

    One con is the difficulty of which it is to fire those who severely under-perform. Also, Human Resources seems to be involved too much and too time consuming with all of their various processes especially new employee on-boarding.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be direct with employees as much as possible, and transparent with all decision making that impacts their team.

    Pros

    There is definitely longevity with Duke. Depending on the department, there is an element of family.

    Cons

    There is a sense or an attitude that if you come in certain departments that you should just now how to do a job and that if you ask questions about the job, not many people are willing to help you. They'd rather look down on you.

    The people are supportive and the projects are challenging and exciting. The company has a good culture and likes to do things the right way.

    You are doing a great job but as the market gets tighter so will be the ability to hold onto younger talent.
