    I worked at Duke Energy full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I worked 12 hour shifts which gave me a lot of free time.
    I was fortunate to have a great supervisor!

    Cons

    The job was very stressful in its self but then they started rotating our schedules working days, nights and weekends. Many employees had to quit or find a new job in Duke.
    Upper management (VP and above) showed a lack of concern many times in the decisions they made which affected not just us regular employees but supervisors and managers who were constantly forced to try and do MORE with LESS!! ... and that always affects customers in and outside the company!

    Advice to Management

    Duke Energy should be thought of as a company that sits on a 3 legged stool.
    Each leg is VITAL to its success.

    Too long one leg has been esteemed more important than the others.
    That leg is Wall Street or the perception of WS.
    Examples are laying off or downsizing employees, robbing (yes I said robbing, sounds better than stealing) employees of their sick time hours that they had saved for many many years and giving them a set amount per year that does not come close to helping if you have a terminal illness!
    Another is Upper Management you get paid to make wise decisions for ALL of us, please put yourself in our place before you make them. For 2-3 years we did not know what to expect when it came to where we would work or if we would have a job, it was always UNKNOWN.
    The other two legs are easy to guess, customers and employees.
    Please realize without any one of the legs the other two are going to FAIL!!!

    I have been working at Duke Energy full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    PTO and sick time off is great. Never been with a company with so much available time off.

    Cons

    Medical insurance is not the best. Large deductibles. Promise of promotion but have to jump thru hoops to get promoted. Rude customers. Serving the general public is challenging but over the phone it is more challenging. Extremely rude for no reason.
    Mandatory extensions to your schedule. Work/home balance is horrible.
    Just want to help the customer not talk them to deaf.

    Advice to Management

    Fix your infrastructure to reduce outages.
