    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Good salary and pretty good benefits

    Cons

    Since the merger the Progress employees have gotten the short end of the stick. Duke Energy is more interested in making money, than the employees. Disable employees are overlooked and pushed to the door.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink your harmonization plan, it alienated the Progrees employees.

    I have been working at Duke Energy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good work/life balance. There are some really intelligent folks working here, but you have to wade through a lot of dullards to find them. If you impress the right people you can have a great career here.

    Cons

    Most employees are like cows grazing in a field. Most contractors are racking up hours doing very little actual work. Projects are always over budget and late. Management rewards boot licking over results.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job of hiring and building talent. Stop promoting poor performers.

    I have been working at Duke Energy full-time

    Pros

    Good hours - 40 45 per week, Health Insurance is inexpensive, but comes with a high deductible plan

    Cons

    Old and stodgy attitude.. Hard work and ambition are not necessarily rewarded. The appearance of "putting in time" rather than innovation and resolution of problems seem to be more important at times.
