    I have been working at Duke Energy (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Extensive growth with opportunity for career growth. Access to multiple technologies and applications. Vision and understanding of Utilities business throughout the USA in multiple States.

    Cons

    Promotions are generally driven by politics versus performance. Although your performance is measured on a yearly basis, your ability to move up the ladder will require strong networking skills. To accept a good career opportunity, you will have to accept a lower salary to begin. The rapid growth can be a negative as you try to understand the company vision, goals, and culture. The company did not settle into its 1st merger before going into a 2nd recent merger which brought in more new visions, ideas, and new management. Trying to navigate through the continual change can be challenging and stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Assess current compensation and salaries which are not in line with recovering economy. In particular, the area of IT is rapidly growing. The offer to grow at other companies while receiving a higher compensation continues to pull good talent and skills away from Duke Energy. Let the company solidify as one culture and vision before proceeding with any additional mergers. Invest in full time employees.
