A complete mess of a company!!!

Project Manager (Current Employee) Charlotte, NC

ProsIf you have a pulse you will stay employed - one of the slowest and under performing work forces I have ever experienced. Full of staff augmentation contractors who do the work while Duke employees shuttle to the cafeteria to graze.

ConsA few - The Duke Energy Center (old building in Charlotte) is a total dump - 30+ years old and filthy. Management is unethical (see Progress merger). Workforce works at 3 speeds - slow, slower, slowest. Totally inbred Nuclear program - you start there, you mate there, your children work there. Pay is miserable and tied to the fact there is 5 times the number of employees needed. Worthless IT systems that are totally disconnected and unusable (for example - no remote access with out a Duke boat anchor laptop! - printing is impossible). Never speak your mind or you are a goner.

Advice to Senior ManagementReplace CEO and to 2 tiers of Executives and start over. Cut half the employees and 75% of the contractors. Getting real work to do is like looking for food in Somalia!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good company, not the most organized intern/co-op program

    IT Intern/Co-Op (Former Employee) Charlotte, NC

    I worked at Duke Energy as an intern for less than a year


    Pros: This company is filled with hard working, genuinely nice people. The compensation is good as well as great benefits.
