I worked at Duke Energy

Pros

Almost everyone that works at Duke Energy is a top notch professional. This creates a solid working environment were almost everyone is happy, challenged and satisified.

Cons

Duke Energy is a large company so it can take time to move up in the ranks. Upward movement is made tougher because of the average age of the employees is on the high side of average.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work. The only suggestion I have is that safety is stressed a little too much. Creating a safe work environment is important, but telling adults how to cross the street is a little demeaning.

    Government pollution and reliability regulations bring new rules, new technology and new jobs.

    I have been working at Duke Energy

    Pros

    A good, friendly work environment. A lot of different jobs that you can move to throughout the company. Great benefits and job security that are rare in the current job market. Customers more consistent than most industries.

    Cons

    Has to deal with extensive demands of government regulations that are constantly changing. Also, energy companies are an easy target for environmentalist protest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Between new government regulations and the acquisition of other companies, Duke Energy has a lot of work to do in establishing standards (and documentation of them) throughout the system from the Power System to Software to Records Retention. This will also be beneficial with the high rate of retirees in the upcoming years being replaced by a young workforce.

    I worked at Duke Energy

    Pros

    Generally, the Intern experience was very positive. Pay for that level of work was quite good and work-time and time-off were very flexible. This probably depends on department, however. Duke is huge.

    Cons

    Being shoehorned into a single position in a large corporation is generally frustrating. At times, there is nothing to do, at others, the work week runs until late evening and weekends. Again, this could depend on department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dear Jim Rodgers, there's a great deal of disconnect between your engineering and business teams. The merger has left some very interesting political rifts within the company as well.
