I worked at Duke Energy as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Plenty to do, Everyone is helpful and wants to teach you everything there is to know about how a power company works.

Cons

You will do the same exactly thing being a project engineer for a very long time. Fairly difficult to grow in the company unless you are good at politics

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

    Pros

    If 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.

    Cons

    A 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 ManagementAdvice

    Replace 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!
