    Good place to work

    Pros

    Very relaxed and a good work life balance. Can definitely see why people with families enjoy working here. Good long term job stability too.

    Cons

    too relaxed at times making it hard to get things done. General attitude towards promotion is based only on number of years of experience which is a great way to drive away young talent.

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

    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.
