Stable work but poor management and lower than average salary.

Pros

I have worked for Duke Energy for 35 years, so I am paid a good salary..at least for this area. The benefits are average. Since I have been here so long, I get 6 weeks vacation. That's a great benefit...if I actually get to use it.

Cons

Compared to other utilities, Duke is well known to be one of the lowest paying utility companies, especially in Nuclear. Compared to other companies, Duke's health care costs are high. Management, at least Nuclear, is not supportive or even respect employees. They often say one thing and do another. They have personally lied to me several times. They point fingers and blame employees but when asked for details they cannot provide facts to support blaming individuals. Expectations for themselves is lower than what they expect of individual workers. Duke expects you to wear a beeper 24/7 and be available for call out and come to work within 75 minutes but there is no compensation for this. They do not respect work/life balance. More and more they expect doing more work with fewer people. They expect workers to just absorb work when people leave.

Advice to Management

Management should respect and support individual contributors. Management needs to walk the talk.

    Pros

    Stable jobs with good benefits. Not great but good and stable.

    Cons

    The company is so large you can get lost in the mix. Almost feels like working in a government job. You feel like your opinion will never matter.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people first, plant & equipment second.
