Pros

Flexible work schedules to choose from. Average salaries and benefits. Multiple work locations which can be a plus.

Cons

Current company is in flux as it is absorbed by Duke Energy based out of Charlotte. No career paths provided or promoted unless you are willin to move.

Advice to Management

Build trust and provide career paths to allow progression from within.

    Pros

    Transparency of Senior Management's actions, integrity, great people to work with and to work for

    Cons

    Communication has come a long way in the last 11 years but cross departmental was restricted, I.T. seems to drive everything in the company instead of the other way around.

    Advice to Management

    You should have steered clear of the Duke merger because that is one unethical, backstabbing group of executive managers


  2. One of the better utilities I have worked for

    Pros

    Ethical, caring, management sacrifices for employees, management support for project development and employee ideas, intentional efforts to increase diversity in upper management.

    Cons

    Difficult to obtain a promotion without changing positions. This allows employees with skills, experience and talent to be lost to other parts of the company where they are not as effective just so they can get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Analyze the promotion strategy within the technical lines of promotion to prevent arbitrarily holding employees at a lower level because a quota is filled at a higher level.
