      Pros

      OK pay, I would give them 0 stars.

      Cons

      Stressful, not a place to grow for black people. Many racist comments from coworkers and upper management & HR would give them a slap on the wrist.

      Decent Salary / Horrible Environment

      Pros

      The pay is decent, but not what it used to be with the recent layoffs and cut backs.

      Cons

      It's a really uptight atmosphere. If you think you'd enjoy working at Google, you will not like it there. It's a sad place to work and all of upper management, have very little care or value of employees. I saw people with 20 years with the company, get dismissed with a week's notice, some with none. Like many companies, the employees are great, but "management" is feckless, and biased. It is the antithesis of what happy, tightknit family-run businesses are about.

      Pros

      Schedule, overtime, uniforms provided, safe job practises

      Cons

      You will start as an contractor, it might take you 5-6 years before or if they will move you to Duke side. There is no communication from upper management about posibilities of getting the Duke position. While working as a contractor, no benefits, raise is about 18 cents a year ( yes no joke), no bonuses, no promises of keeping the employment, no retirement. So, before you quit your career, which has all the benefits with retirement, raises, days off, payed holidays and get sucked into empty promises at Duke Energy think twice. It is very sad to say but it is not worth it......

      Pros

      Good pay and good benefits

      Cons

      Upper management does not seem to have a solid understanding of the work in their own department. They micromanage on an unhealthy and unproductive level.
