    I worked at Duquesne Light for less than a year

    Pros

    - Great pay for interns. I was very pleasantly surprised with their offer. - Fun events for interns (ex: full day of pay for going to see a Pirates game, paid for by the company) - My experience with my manager was amazing. He was very helpful and completely transparent with me. He was honest when I messed up, but helped me get back on my feet. He was very supportive and listened to all of my thoughts/concerns.

    Cons

    - Downtown location is a pain to get to sometimes, but this is true for anywhere in the city. Driving will require you to pay for parking. On Smithfield-Liberty, parking is $20/day. Consol (PPG Paints Center) is $6.50/day. This tends to add up pretty quickly. If you're local and can take public transportation, you'll have that benefit. - Company is a little slow technologically. Employee intranet is absolutely... horrendous. - Getting permissions from IT for programs, SharePoint sites, etc. can take a while.

    Advice to Management

    Consultants work well, but it's time to move away from having so many of them and hiring more full-time employees. You'll have more employee dedication to the company that way.
