    I have been working at Duke Energy full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company is taking steps to faithfully serve the rate payers. This amounts to making changes to the mix of energy sources and how they are operated, turning greener and meaner. This means a few things to me, more natural gas power plants and more renewables, but also lots of cost cutting efforts. I feel that Duke Energy is taking the right steps when considering the customers, employees, and public.

    Cons

    The change management leaves something to desire. There are a lot of moving parts and some changes result in breaking existing processes. When such instances occur, it leaves a kind of bewilderment with employees as to how we could have missed something like this. In summary, we are changing too many things at the same time.

    Advice to Management

    Prioritize what needs to be changed, and execute the change accordingly. Allow more time with these ambitious efforts.
