Neutral Outlook

Pros

-Multiple chances for professional development (professional training courses, resources in company library)
-At power plants, opportunity to see the outcome of engineering projects
-Chances to get out of the office, with walk downs, trainings, and other aspects of power plant operation

Cons

-Working in the nuclear side of the business, everything slows down due to heavy risk management
-It is easy to lose sight of goals for large projects, that span 4-6 years.
-Important, but security concerns/reviews/approvals can greatly impact work and schedule

Advice to Management

Be ready to make changes, the traditional utility business model may see change in the near future. Management should make sure employees and the company culture is ready for that.

    Pros

    Steady income, just okay benefits

    Cons

    Organization doesn't know innovation and ostracizes employees who attempt to bring new ideas to the table. Management is too busy putting out daily operational fires to care about a long or short term strategic vision. Little to no career paths. Mergers have further divided company into factions and simple decisions now take months.

    Advice to Management

    Need to start listening to employees and learn the definition of innovation. If you weren't selling electricity, you'd be out of business.

    Pros

    Interesting work. The people I work with (local) are good people.

    Cons

    Progress Energy was bought out 2 years ago by Duke. The corporate machine changes are now coming down and all is not well. Duke is changing things just to let us all know who is in charge. Some things don't work for particular sites, but that doesn't matter as long as it matches what every other site in Duke is doing. Too much emphasis on corporate matching. On top of that, Duke just slashed it's non-bargaining unit employees pay and benefits in Florida, and is currently working on doing the same to the bargaining unit employees. It's not a cost cutting measure to save jobs or keep the company afloat. It's not even industry standard, it's pure corporate greed and Duke trying to be the "trend setters"

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees that actually make the company money, not just senior level managers.
