    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great work/life balance, excellent benefits.

    Cons

    If you're looking to grow your career based on your performance this is not the place you want to be. They reward tenure over performance, and complacency is a pretty standard portion of the company culture.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to weed out the employees that are riding the coat tails of the high achievers.

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

    Pros

    Development, growth opportunity, and flexibility. My peer group is amazing and supportive. They’ve rolled out new programs that allow new parents to have PAID time off, they have programs in place to be paid while out for surgeries or other health related reasons, and they help with college costs.

    Cons

    In my role, there is a lot of information to know and it’s constantly changing. It’s not really a con, but it can be overwhelming at times. Luckily, my management is really supportive.

    Advice to Management

    Keep treating employees like they are your biggest and best asset, because they are.

    Pros

    Very laid back, and if you are an ambitious person there are actually ways to "move up" as an intern.

    Cons

    It's a big company so bureaucracy gets in the way sometimes.
