Pros

They focus a lot on employee development through training and mentoring, there are lots of opportunities to learn new skills, great compensation and benefits, reasonable amount of travel.

Very bureaucratic and slow-paced, few opportunities to move up in the ranks, sometimes felt a bit behind the curve

Advice to Management

Reduce the levels of hierarchy in the company and keep encouraging employee and career development. Your mentoring program is excellent.

    Pros

    Ample opportunities exist to grow and develop in a technical field. The senior employees are very willing to share knowledge and experience with junior members of the workforce. The company is not shy about giving employees large responsibilities. Project management is the general theme when it comes to engineering work so projects ranging in size are there for the taking.

    Cons

    The compensation level is not outstanding, but average. Internally, the company has the feel of a government bureaucracy as it has close ties to the government in how its budgets are set and in the speed with which the company operates.

    Advice to Management

    Improve budgeting process to speed up project execution time-lines.

    Pros

    Duke Energy is a great place to work. I believe there really is a genuine interest in doing the right thing and treating employees and customer fairly, honestly and ethically.

    Cons

    Being a regulated utility, it is sometimes difficult to cost justify new technology and the expense associated with it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep our feet on the ground and don't repeat the mistakes of the DENA days when new and better was the only option. New technology and new business is fun and we desperately need to embrace change. However, we must ensure the base platform is stable and reliable before heading off in new frontiers.
