    I worked at Progress Energy (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Good technical job. Worked with a lot of highly talented technical people.

    Cons

    Many, many hours. To move up you have to move around from site to site to site. Not good with a family - that is for sure.

    I worked at Progress Energy full-time

    Pros

    A lot of good people. Benefits were nice. Opportunities to develop and work in different groups within IT.

    Cons

    Progression was really slow for me in the company. With all companies have to do deal with the politics. Merger with Duke did not go over to well with folks in the IT Dept.

    Advice to Management

    Develop your employees, look at how to leverage talents on your team, and provide challenging tasks when possible.

    I worked at Progress Energy full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, pay was ok like getting bonus. Safety is a big goal! Always had work to do

    Went downhill after merger with Duke Energy! Duke doesn't really care about Progress Energy employees! New
    CEO was suppose to visit our dept and never showed up!

    Advice to Management

    Don't take employees for granted!

    Pros

    Progress Energy is a great place to work! The management teams are well trained management, the company offers a nice balance of work and life, and the compensation is competitive.

    Cons

    Utility regulation. Duke Energy merger until complete is a bit unsettling for associates.

    Advice to Management

    Make the Duke/Progress merger outcome outstanding from a culture perspective.

    I have been working at Progress Energy full-time

    Pros

    Collaborative work environment, many opportunities for career growth and learning, supportive management, family-like culture makes you feel like you're part of the team, can-do / get it done attitude by staff is energizing

    Cons

    Most of the best parts of Progress were lost during the Duke Energy merger, and many good employees were replaced with inexperienced staff. I've never seen culture erode so fast as it did at the combined Progress Energy / Duke Energy

    When approaching a merger, make sure you take the best offer, not just the offer you think may be best for the management team.
