Pros

Generally, the Intern experience was very positive. Pay for that level of work was quite good and work-time and time-off were very flexible. This probably depends on department, however. Duke is huge.

Cons

Being shoehorned into a single position in a large corporation is generally frustrating. At times, there is nothing to do, at others, the work week runs until late evening and weekends. Again, this could depend on department.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Dear Jim Rodgers, there's a great deal of disconnect between your engineering and business teams. The merger has left some very interesting political rifts within the company as well.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

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