Current Contractor - Anonymous Contractor

I have been working at Duke Energy as a contractor (more than 5 years)

Pros

Relaxed work environment, stability, time for personal growth

Cons

pay, limited growth opportunities for outsiders, discrimination in some quarters of the IT organization

Advice to ManagementAdvice

especially in few areas of IT- management is too old who think of themselves as experienced being at Duke so long..but they have to understand that, its not 'experienced' but known as 'Aged' .Aged cheese is good but not the aged inefficient and incompetent management . Also learn from other biggies in the area like banks as to how to realize the potential of multicultural people...and let them grow and bring a different perspective to the organization.

Positive Outlook

    Pros

    Good benefits. You can contract forever if you are a contractor.

    Cons

    Cross-Team collaboration is horrible. Everyone is too busy trying to protect their turf and avoid responsibility\blame. Technically inept in some departments. A lot of long time employees are using technology like it was still the year 2000. Very resistant to change and new ideas. Too many folks are there just to collect a paycheck and retire.

    Pros

    if you have the ability to butter your way up, this is a perfect place for you.

    Cons

    hmm let me see.... all my comments below obviously does not apply to all the people in management. also, it only applied to the IT part of the company. I have heard the other sectors of the company are very good. there are few, very few, actually very very few people in the IT part of duke energy that the below points do not apply to.

    1.Racist
    2.Unfair
    3.Favoritism oriented
    4.Just painful office politics.
    5.Communist
    6.pathetic
    7.stupid management
    8.stupid management selecting stupid successors for them
    9.unequal work distribution
    10.incorrect performance appraisal, since performance appraisal depends on how much do you kiss your manager's you know what. it really does not matter how good the quality of your abilities are. your education does not matter. your experience does not matter. your knowledge does not matter. if you dont know how to play the butt kissing game, you will bleed here.

    actually people of color dont even bother to work in the IT sector headed by AR Mullinax.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    nothing to share, dont think it will make any difference. i just want the rest of the charlotte community to know never to even think about coming to work as an IT professional in Duke Energy.
