    Cons

    There are not many cons to working at Duke Energy. If I had to choose I would say they are slow to change sometimes and government like

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Duke gets a bad public perception, however Duke provides a noble service, electricity. They need to continue to educate the public.

    I worked at Duke Energy full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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 have been working at Duke Energy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Duke Energy has a good work life balance and is fairly stable. Many of the people working there are very friendly and are great to work with.

    Cons

    Duke Energy's compensation is not that great and would be considered lacking by most. To make matters worse, you will be working alongside contractors who often will make more than you because they are paid hourly rather than salary. Duke Energy also suffers from being over run with bureaucracy. Everything you do at Duke Energy will involve having navigate some convoluted process. You will spend more time dealing with bureaucracy than actually completing your work.

    Advice to Management

    Cut back on the meetings! They are way to many meetings. Management also needs to streamline its business processes to make them easier and quicker to navigate so workers can be more productive.

    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.
