I have been working at Duke Energy full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Duke has a family-like culture. It's a more laid back, non-stressful environment. Good work-life balance, a lot of people work from home on Fridays. They are trying to get more progressive but sometimes it seems like they are stuck in a good ol boys culture.

Cons

I enjoy working here but there is a stagnant, non-innovating air to the corporate office. They don't convert contractors very often and they rely too much on contractors.

    I worked at Duke Energy as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    None that I know of

    Cons

    Changing the way they do business constantly, changing procedures, project funding constantly.

    Advice to Management

    Get your ducks in a row. And fire some of these people that have been at one plant all their life and think they know all there is to know about nuclear power, and that all contractors all scum bags

    I have been working at Duke Energy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    pay is great. they really focus on education and do all they can to get you the education needed.
    great benefits. always changing. keeps you on your toes and helps you grow.

    Cons

    There is a lot of favoritism to the senior people. There are hypocritical decisions made often. They say they are focusing on one thing and then make a decision that is the complete opposite.

    Advice to Management

    more consulting through the chains should happen before decisions are made. i see a lot of decisions made by people that don't understand the business they are leading that directly affect how the job gets done. some decisions are so far off that they cannot be followed in the field while getting the job done. This creates a whole fleet of technicians doing things against the rules to get their job done. They know the rules were created by people who have never done the job themselves so they get used to going around the rules. this creates a unsafe/unproductive behavior at times.
