Pros

Very interesting and diverse work. The management is generally very strong and employee oriented. There is potential for growth but you need to develop your own networking system. If you are a recent college grad they have implemented programs that help you learn about the diverse areas of the company. They offer a rotation program in the IT department so you can experience many different facets of IT prior to deciding where you will settle.

Cons

Due to some of the downsizing in recent years, many folks have more work than they can possibly manage. Sometimes it takes a little time to get things processed and completed.

Advice to Management

Listen to the people in the field that are doing the work. They generally know and understand what is really happening with morale.

    Pros

    You never have to worry about the company's services not being needed anymore as everyone needs power to function in today's world. The population of the work force is more like family than coworkers. Everyone cares about everyone else and their ability to make it home safe to their family at the end of the day. The benefits packages are out of this world witht he company matching more than most do for retirement 401K accounts. Wonderful vacation and pay raise scales keep you from being left behind on the money train. Overal, I have been there more than a decade and nothing major to complain about yet.

    Cons

    Nothing in over a decade!

    Advice to Management

    Remember that you used to be a line-level worker too!

    Pros

    The culture at Duke Energy is very 'collaborative and concensus building'. Good teamwork. Good overall management and leadership. Not the greatest formal benefits, but very flexible with 'informal' benefits - flexible work schedules, bonuses, rewards, etc. Peers in general are good to work with. Managers tend to be promoted from withing, which can be a blessing or a curse.

    Cons

    Some 'dead wood' that has been there a long time and no real performance management done to weed them out. Managers not willing to deal with it. Tends to 'dumb down' or 'slow down' the organization leading to negative feelings for high performing employees. High performers, as usual, tend to get rewarded with more work.

    Advice to Management

    Deal with performance issues. Get the dead wood out to build higher performing organization.
