The minions at Duke Energy are great people who just want to make a difference. They are great people who truly care about one another.
The leadership at Duke Energy is stuck in the old typical regulated utility market with no idea how to lead a 21st century company into the future. They lack vision and only value one thing, their bottom line.5

Duke energy does have what seems to be a very kind work environment
Due to the soft nature of the work environment if someone is offended by something someone says they will not talk to you and give you details to better yours elf they beat around the bish so they don't offend you as well. And then they let you go.

The culture at Duke Energy is very 'collaborative and concensus building'. Good teamwork. Good overall management and leadership. Not the greatest formal benefits, but very flexible with 'informal' benefits - flexible work schedules, bonuses, rewards, etc. Peers in general are good to work with. Managers tend to be promoted from withing, which can be a blessing or a curse.
Some 'dead wood' that has been there a long time and no real performance management done to weed them out. Managers not willing to deal with it. Tends to 'dumb down' or 'slow down' the organization leading to negative feelings for high performing employees. High performers, as usual, tend to get rewarded with more work.1

People are very welcoming to contractors and treat you like one of the Duke Energy Team.
Constant reorganization causes much instability

Almost everyone that works at Duke Energy is a top notch professional. This creates a solid working environment were almost everyone is happy, challenged and satisified.
Duke Energy is a large company so it can take time to move up in the ranks. Upward movement is made tougher because of the average age of the employees is on the high side of average.

Duke Energy is heavily engaged in the community and they take action to show they care about their employees. This has been especially clear in light of COVID-19.
It’s working in nuclear so it’s very process driven and in many cases doesn’t reward or value creativity. The existing processes are trusted which can make change hard.

Co-op experience provides an excellent way to learn about the various work opportunities across all of Duke Energy.
Large corporate environment means co-ops/interns may not always have meaningful work. Must search hard for rewarding projects depending on the rotation.

Duke Energy has a good work life balance and is fairly stable. Many of the people working there are very friendly and are great to work with.
Duke Energy's compensation is not that great and would be considered lacking by most. To make matters worse, you will be working alongside contractors who often will make more than you because they are paid hourly rather than salary. Duke Energy also suffers from being over run with bureaucracy. Everything you do at Duke Energy will involve having navigate some convoluted process. You will spend more time dealing with bureaucracy than actually completing your work.4

There is always a lunch catered by and exceptional vendor.
Customer Delivery departmental of Duke Energy is not diverse and is not inclusive. There is an underlining good ol boy system and your skin cannot be be too identifiable to a culture. The brash “I’m not doing it” older employees are more valued because longevity with the company,not what is best for the company. Do not speak up for betterment of the business, or you will be black balled.2
