Stable work but poor management and lower than average salary.

Project Manager (Current Employee) Charlotte, NC

ProsI 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.

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Duke Energy is a great company to work for and has a strong reputation.
