Pros

Duke has a fairly good benefits package and overall compensation( salary, benefits, 401-K match, etc) are very good.

Cons

Duke is very aggresively cutting costs and is doing so at the expense of many of it's employees. In many cases, it is using arbitrary criteria like physical location to determine where to cut headcount. I predict Duke will lose many good, seasoned people over the next few years.

Advice to Management

If you want to get rid of headcount, then just come out and say so. Don't disguise it as something else.

    Pros

    has been an awesome job - great work\life balance - respect for life outside work. expected to get work done & produce - but never overbearing and able to be flexible when needed. HAS been awesome - shame some Cincy jobs moving to Charlotte. Charlotte office is pretty nice also, just too far from family. Would have stayed forever :-)

    Cons

    Has been hard to operate out of 2 offices sometimes Charlotte & Cincy - just didn't become 'easy' for some to have staff in 2 places.

    Advice to Management

    Try not to outsource too much ....

    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.
