    I worked at Duke Energy full-time

    Pros

    Great company, good benefits, good annual bonus. Depending on your manager, there is a lot of work/life flexibiltiy and balance. They also allow movement into different areas of the company if you choose that path. A lot of people are passionate about their work.

    Cons

    Lower than industry salaries, very low % in merit increases. The corporate culture sometimes feels antiquated with separation in ideology between older employees and younger employees. Budget concerns and employee layoffs is always a concern creating an unpleasant atmosphere. 2 years ago there were tons of "involuntary" and "voluntary" cuts throughout all of Finance. This past week, 46 people in Corporate Tax were outsourced and will now become E&Y employees.

    Advice to Management

    For a company that can be so great and has amazing talent in a very niche industry, stop treating your employees like cattle for miniscule benefits.
