I have been working at Duke Energy full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

pay is great. they really focus on education and do all they can to get you the education needed.
great benefits. always changing. keeps you on your toes and helps you grow.

Cons

There is a lot of favoritism to the senior people. There are hypocritical decisions made often. They say they are focusing on one thing and then make a decision that is the complete opposite.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

more consulting through the chains should happen before decisions are made. i see a lot of decisions made by people that don't understand the business they are leading that directly affect how the job gets done. some decisions are so far off that they cannot be followed in the field while getting the job done. This creates a whole fleet of technicians doing things against the rules to get their job done. They know the rules were created by people who have never done the job themselves so they get used to going around the rules. this creates a unsafe/unproductive behavior at times.

    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.
