Great if your job isn't lost due to corporate consolidation

Pros

Currently the benefits are excellent and the pay is above average. Start with a prorated two weeks of vacation and unlimited (within reason) sick time plus 3 personal days.

Cons

Due to the recent corporate consolidation, any Cincinnati job deemed corporate is being transitioned to Charlotte, NC. This includes most of legal, IT, human resources, and accounting and finance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Many people are leaving the company due to the corporate consolidation and voluntary buy out. This knowledge will be lost unless management finds a way to better document the processes.

    I have been working at Duke Energy

    Pros

    Duke has a fairly good benefits package and overall compensation( salary, benefits, 401-K match, etc) are very good.

    Cons

    Duke is very aggresively cutting costs and is doing so at the expense of many of it's employees. In many cases, it is using arbitrary criteria like physical location to determine where to cut headcount. I predict Duke will lose many good, seasoned people over the next few years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to get rid of headcount, then just come out and say so. Don't disguise it as something else.

    I have been working at Duke Energy

    Pros

    has been an awesome job - great work\life balance - respect for life outside work. expected to get work done & produce - but never overbearing and able to be flexible when needed. HAS been awesome - shame some Cincy jobs moving to Charlotte. Charlotte office is pretty nice also, just too far from family. Would have stayed forever :-)

    Cons

    Has been hard to operate out of 2 offices sometimes Charlotte & Cincy - just didn't become 'easy' for some to have staff in 2 places.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try not to outsource too much ....
