I worked at Duke Energy

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Duke Energy full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's a company that you can enhance your professional development and reach a work-life balance. Also, it's a solid and profitable business with a great reputation among its peers, communities and market.

    Cons

    There are so many layers of management and internal processes approvals, that, usually, a simple decision requires lots of time encouraging a lack of productivity.
