Pros

Duke is a very large utility that offers better than average job security for those individuals that do like like to work in a dynamic company.

Cons

Duke Energy as a whole makes decisions at the pace of a glacier and is very risk adverse, so if you want to work in a cube the rest of your life.....this is the place for you!

Advice to Management

Most of Duke management needs to realize that there is more to the world than just North Carolina and the Midwest.

    Pros

    They focus a lot on employee development through training and mentoring, there are lots of opportunities to learn new skills, great compensation and benefits, reasonable amount of travel.

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic and slow-paced, few opportunities to move up in the ranks, sometimes felt a bit behind the curve

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the levels of hierarchy in the company and keep encouraging employee and career development. Your mentoring program is excellent.

  2. Good company to work for if you are looking for large responsibility quickly.

    Pros

    Ample opportunities exist to grow and develop in a technical field. The senior employees are very willing to share knowledge and experience with junior members of the workforce. The company is not shy about giving employees large responsibilities. Project management is the general theme when it comes to engineering work so projects ranging in size are there for the taking.

    Cons

    The compensation level is not outstanding, but average. Internally, the company has the feel of a government bureaucracy as it has close ties to the government in how its budgets are set and in the speed with which the company operates.

    Advice to Management

    Improve budgeting process to speed up project execution time-lines.
