Generally, a decent place to work if you are an Engineer or in that field. Hard to promote from within.

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

    Pros

    Duke has a great business model and longevity in the market. You know of high degree of certainty that they willnot go out of business.

    Cons

    The business model does not work well for the IT consultant (contractor) after six and a half years still no permanent position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more permanent employees

  2.  

    Struggling to find its way - merges then allows the less advanced safety & corp culture lead.

    I have been working at Duke Energy full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Provides decent workplaces.
    Plenty of work to do.
    Awards by performance

    Cons

    Trying to adhere to the govt mandated diversity requirements essentially overnight. WMales in some groups have no chance of moving up. This has been directly communicated by some dept GM's
    Business Process systems have pushed a lot of work to first line management while admin support is essentially gone. Making bad long term decisions to meet severe budget limitations (cut out work and people) to meet short term objectives that will cost a lot to correct after the people making the bad decisions are gone.
    Past CEO,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure the constant rotation of management and severe O&M reduction doesn't cull out the internal control of key safety functions and practices. Span of control expansion was forced too far at the last merger. Burn out and poor work quality is going to shortly be the next lesson learned. Too many "non-doers" being advanced.
