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.

    I have been working at Duke Energy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Really good benefits and a nice bonus every March. Lots of opportunities for growth and advancement. Thoroughly train their employees and good job security assuming you're an employee and not a contractor.

    Cons

    If you're hired as a contractor there are very few pros. Hiring process for anything in nuclear takes a long time, 3-6 months minimum, and a lot of positions are filled by contractors so it can be difficult to get a direct hire position especially for entry/low level positions.

    Advice to Management

    You can't replace a nuclear specialist with 3 entry level contractors, this causes a huge experience gap so hire more experienced candidates directly and cut back on long term contractors.
