    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Duquesne Light full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They have breakfast and lunch meetings to entice employees to attend.

    Cons

    Constant management changes. Lack of focus and direction. They are looking to just get by as they always have done, no interest in future improvements. Probably hoping to get bought by First Energy.

    Advice to Management

    Retire

    Pros

    Great benefits and the company is moving toward a more flexible schedule.

    Cons

    The company as a whole is still more old school than many other companies. Their working on work life balance, but still not where they should be.

    I worked at Duquesne Light full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good pay for new employees Great priced benefits Coworkers are very helpful The size of the company makes the work feel closer to home

    Cons

    Very top heavy. Plenty of managers, not enough boots on the ground. Definitely a "best friends club". If you know someone, you're good to go. If you don't, work 3x as hard. Favoritism is popular here

    Advice to Management

    Stop pretending to listen to employees and then do the exact opposite
