      Approves of CEO

      I worked at Duke Energy full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Good benefits, multiple levels of health insurance available. Opportunities to move around within the company. Assisted with professional development well (conferences, professional dues and college course reimbursement, etc). Nice bonus based on company performance and personal performance.

      Cons

      Work can be boring and decisions take awhile. Limited scope of work for engineers. Field personnel management can be a little over confident in their opinions.

        Negative Outlook
        No opinion of CEO

        I have been working at Duke Energy full-time for more than 6 years

        Pros

        Good retirement benefits. Holiday pay is good. Overall pay is good. Lots of good people to work with.

        Cons

        After 5 years with the company. I was laid off with two children in diapers at home. There is a large divide in certain parts of the company between salaried and hourly employees.

        Advice to Management

        Layoffs to pad the books is not the way to take care of employees. The work force is aging (baby boomers) natural attrition would be the kindest way to take care of employees.

          Pros

          Good overall bonus plan. 401k match is good. Laid back atmosphere most of the time.

          Cons

          Resource management is poor. No incentive to achieve. Major daily business decisions made in highly centralized bubbles out of HQ.

          Advice to Management

          Sit with employees and try to understand their major concerns they face daily, not just through generic surveys.

          I worked at Duke Energy full-time for more than 20 years

          Pros

          Compensation is competitive; that’s about it.

          Cons

          Work is not equitably assigned, resulting in some employees being overloaded while others spend a lot of time socializing, arriving to work late, taking long lunches, and leaving early. Some managers have no management skills whatsoever. Training is essentially non-existent. Employees are expected to consult the Employee Portal to figure out how to do everything. Constantly reorganizing departments and having layoffs....

          Advice to Management

          Why offer advice when management doesn’t listen?
