    I have been working at Duke Energy full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Depending on manager, the 1 day off during the week helps with home life.

    Cons

    Never let management get the idea you are great at your job. You will be hounded constantly and pulled into a lot of projects. You are expected to be "in the area" during outages even if you have no work scheduled to be done. The stress can be too much at times. Feeling of no way to disconnect.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees personal time. If they are needed after hours, pay them accordingly.

    I worked at Duke Energy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits; good co-workers who are typically hard-working team players who care about doing the right things. CEO says the right things regarding strategy, customers, environment, community.

    Cons

    From a cultural and technological perspective, company is like a government agency: slow to change, tactical rather than strategic, led by managers rather than leaders. Communications are typically one-way, rather than two-way dialogue. Lack of strong succession planning and talent development internally; lack of diversity in talent from external resources.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to employee opinion surveys; reinstate employee town halls; have skip level meetings. Get out of your offices and walk the floors, talk to your employees. Require LEADERSHIP training. And when you are looking at ways to reduce costs, evaluate managers' span & control. Managers with one direct report is a waste of money & resources.
