No opinion of CEO

I worked at Duke Energy as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Some good technical experience. Great name to have on resume. A few coworkers were amazing to work with.

Cons

Not enough work given to interns. Often times sat around surfing the internet aimlessly for hours (after continuously asking for more work). A lot of the work given was database entry/organization. Lack of opportunity. No mentor-ship or professional development. Supervisor maybe talked to me 5 times the entire summer. Full time engineering jobs seem to be "cookie cutter" jobs across the company.

Advice to Management

Change culture in nuclear to bring the next generation of young employees in. Encourage professional development and reward hard working employees.

    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 Management

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