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.

    Pros

    Duke has a family-like culture. It's a more laid back, non-stressful environment. Good work-life balance, a lot of people work from home on Fridays. They are trying to get more progressive but sometimes it seems like they are stuck in a good ol boys culture.

    Cons

    I enjoy working here but there is a stagnant, non-innovating air to the corporate office. They don't convert contractors very often and they rely too much on contractors.

  2. Duke is a great company to work for.

    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 Management

    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.
