    I have been working at Duke Energy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay and bonuses are excellent. Decent medical/dental/vision coverage.

    Cons

    401k match could be larger. If you are a serious person who likes to work independently without "shooting the bull" a lot, this may not be the place for you. In my experience, as a new employee, your peers and immediate supervisors create their first impression of you and if it is of a negative tone, they maintain their thoughts about you and tend to treat you like the black sheep of the "family."

    Advice to Management

    Grow a pair and take care of your people. most decisions are made with the financial impact set as the priority instead of listening to their work force and taking into account their difficulties with the work requirements.
    The company preaches a good ethos but no one sticks to it and complains about it. The focus of this company is not on it's people.
    How does Lynn Good live with herself by letting a huge work force go, and then post employment opportunities for those same positions for weeks on end? Makes no sense.

    I worked at Duke Energy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good experienced people and that is it.

    Cons

    Being a smart competent engineer does not mean a thing in this company. You will see unqualified people moving up and making important decisions (technical sometimes) while you as an engineer will be ignored and continue to be undervalued. Engineers pay is just disrespectful and laughable. Avoid at all costs.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to basis and value your Engineers.
