Pros

Almost everyone that works at Duke Energy is a top notch professional. This creates a solid working environment were almost everyone is happy, challenged and satisified.

Cons

Duke Energy is a large company so it can take time to move up in the ranks. Upward movement is made tougher because of the average age of the employees is on the high side of average.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work. The only suggestion I have is that safety is stressed a little too much. Creating a safe work environment is important, but telling adults how to cross the street is a little demeaning.

    Pros

    A good, friendly work environment. A lot of different jobs that you can move to throughout the company. Great benefits and job security that are rare in the current job market. Customers more consistent than most industries.

    Cons

    Has to deal with extensive demands of government regulations that are constantly changing. Also, energy companies are an easy target for environmentalist protest.

    Advice to Management

    Between new government regulations and the acquisition of other companies, Duke Energy has a lot of work to do in establishing standards (and documentation of them) throughout the system from the Power System to Software to Records Retention. This will also be beneficial with the high rate of retirees in the upcoming years being replaced by a young workforce.

    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.

    Cons

    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.
