    Pros

    A very good technology advanced company with a large work backlog.

    Cons

    With all the mergers the business' don't have any idea what to do next. Some of the new managers from the mergers are not competent especially nontechnical ones in technical positions. Salaries were good to great, now with all the problems not so good increase.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to basics. Stop letting managers burn the assists and not taking care of the long term. Like the ash. Short term profits will run you out of business.

    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.
