I worked at Duke Energy full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Very high pay for the work done. You get a lot of days off with a rotating schedule. Top pay is almost $35 an hour for fossil operators.

Cons

There is no support from management. Hard work gets you no where with the company. Benefits have been cut over the last few years and now they are pushing high deductible insurance on everyone.

Advice to Management

Need to worry less about mergers and more about your people.

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

    Pros

    Good weather, located in nice area

    Cons

    Cheap, not concerned with employees, don't value the work done. Merging with Progress Energy was the worst move in my time with this company.

    Advice to Management

    Value nuclear training and the people who do it

    I worked at Duke Energy full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Great if you move to Charlotte
    - If your job is regional (digging ditches/climbing poles) then you are safe in OHIO.

    Cons

    - Ghost town because of consolidating, relocating and/or forcing retirement after becoming the largest Electric Utility in the nation.

    - Promising the North Carolina Commisions so many bodies will remain in Raleigh (old headquarters for Progress Energy) caused upper management to put importance on Raleigh and Charlotte employees and less importance on Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana.

    - Morale at an All Time LOW with many employees assuming that a buy out is pending.

    Advice to Management

    Quit fearing the idea of telecommuting from other states by promoting the false sense that "the only way to breed creativity is if everyone on your team is in the same room working together". If you want to retain top talent then let them collaborate using telecommunications and they will get the job done.
