Pros

Benefits, stable company, stand by employees.

Cons

Moving many positions to contract workers. Most all of the previous retail locations and payment centers have been closed. Now, the only way to speak to a Duke Energy employee is to phone the call center.

Advice to Management

The Bottom Line is important, but not everything.

    Pros

    Great people, marketable pay, training and professional development, pays up to $25K towards PHD.

    Cons

    Management often does not take the time to actually "manage" and develop staff. Positive reinforcement can go a long way.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to develop staff, provide cross training opportunities, take a direct approach to ee issues

    Pros

    Top leadership does a great job communicating to employees. Very important given the company size.

    Great benefits, salaries, pension plan.

    Large, diverse Fortune 500 company.

    EXTREME company-wide emphasis on safety. Seriously!!! Don't get caught jaywalking outside during lunch because if they know you work for Duke, they will call you out if they catch you.

    Cons

    Despite the obvious success of the company, some departments still use outdated practices, technology, etc.

    Culture clashes. Tenured employees, many whom have been around 30 or 40 years set the standard for how things get done. Lot of them are stuck doing things the "old"way and are resistant to new ideas or outsiders. Despite the size of the company, it feels like its stuck in a time bubble. Not the cutting edge company one would envision. Good ole boy network in full effect in most departments. Blind leading the blind since the merger. Highly ineffective leadership in some departments. Great place to work for someone who wants to coast and get a paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Offer mandatory retirement packages to some of those 30 & 40 year people who are weighing certain departments down.
