Duke was a good place to work several years ago but with all the mergers and management changes its not the same..

I worked at Duke Energy full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Very high pay for the work done. You get a lot of days off with a rotating schedule. Top pay is almost $35 an hour for fossil operators.

Cons

There is no support from management. Hard work gets you no where with the company. Benefits have been cut over the last few years and now they are pushing high deductible insurance on everyone.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to worry less about mergers and more about your people.

    Pros

    - Great if you move to Charlotte
    - If your job is regional (digging ditches/climbing poles) then you are safe in OHIO.

    Cons

    - Ghost town because of consolidating, relocating and/or forcing retirement after becoming the largest Electric Utility in the nation.

    - Promising the North Carolina Commisions so many bodies will remain in Raleigh (old headquarters for Progress Energy) caused upper management to put importance on Raleigh and Charlotte employees and less importance on Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana.

    - Morale at an All Time LOW with many employees assuming that a buy out is pending.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit fearing the idea of telecommuting from other states by promoting the false sense that "the only way to breed creativity is if everyone on your team is in the same room working together". If you want to retain top talent then let them collaborate using telecommunications and they will get the job done.

    Current Employee - Customer Service Manager in Cincinnati, OH

    I have been working at Duke Energy full-time (more than 10 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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