    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Teamwork culture, but needs to get the lead out!

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Great place to work.

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Pros

    I really didn't like working for this company which is why I left

    Cons

    More managers than workers. Management out of Charlotte treated employees badly, made them feel worthless, made derogatory comments, accusations, sarcastic comments. If you weren't a Duke employee and were a former Progress Energy employee then they basically treated you like crap.

    Good place to work

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Pros

    Co-op experience provides an excellent way to learn about the various work opportunities across all of Duke Energy.

    Cons

    Large corporate environment means co-ops/interns may not always have meaningful work. Must search hard for rewarding projects depending on the rotation.

    My experience has been hampered by the constant hurdles of bureaucracy in every aspect of my work.

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.
