Utility provider with extensive opportunities and challenges for employees.
Telephone Specialist (Former Employee), Charlotte, NCOctober 7, 2013
Pros: excellent incentive programs
Cons: on call 24 hours daily for emergencies (storms, grid issues, etc.)
A day at work involved answering inbound calls from customers regarding their electric/gas service: start/stop service, billing, new products, repairs and emergencies. I learned how to effectively manage customers that were upset over various issues and to work toward a resolution that satisfied both customer and company. The management at Duke Energy – more... had an open door policy and was always willing to give assistance as needed. I found it most difficult when I was unable to fully assist a customer based on policy or procedural expectations. I enjoy coming to a full resolution that makes customer and company feel valued and satisfied. – less

Nuc plants are tough places to work
Plant Operations (Former Employee), York, SCApril 19, 2013
Pros: great area to live in
Cons: micro management and very old staff
Worked at the Catawba site. Duke takes great effort to over analyze everything it does. We had a saying there, As soon as you walked in you may as well write your self up for a violation. It was always 2 steps forward and 1 step back.

Make a mistake and you will be talking to every manager including the plant manager, no matter how small. They come – more... up with a sign off for everything, no matter how small and even the way to sign off on the sign off is proceduralized. Its so bad, many times you loose site of what you are doing for all the extraneous requirements they've come up with. – less

Great culture. Promotions are harder to come by for younger employees
IT Project Manager (Current Employee), Charlotte, NCMarch 6, 2013
Pros: great culture.
Cons: aging workforce leaves little room to move up for younger employees
Duke Energy has a great laid back culture. They are a utility company so they are obviously not bleeding edge when it comes to technology. The workforce is aging so that leaves little opportunity for younger employees to get to senior and manager positions.

High stress, little to no acknowledgment of job performance quality
Senior Oracle Database Administrator (Former Employee), Charlotte, NCFebruary 11, 2013
Pros: high pay
Cons: very little down time, very little recognization from users and management.
A typical day at work involves monitoring Remedy Picasso consoles, picking up, analyzing and solving user submitted problems and changes. I learned a great deal in my time there, as it is a very high tempo, very high visiblity position within the company. Management was NOT one of the strong points at Duke Energy, and you are treated with almost no – more... respect, and are more like a number in a system than a person. The hardest part of the job was dealing with managements mostly unreasonalbe expectations, and users who do not realize how difficult their requests may be. The most enjoyable part is seeing how your hard work pays off and benefits the end user – less

Ratio of contractors to regular employees is high
IT Security Analyst (Former Employee), Charlotte North CarolinaApril 26, 2012
Good people. Management is out of touch with daily operations and fails to provide needed information to workers. Management by spreadsheet is the norm. Contractors support production goals which enhance the bonuses for regular employees but contractors are not included in these bonuses. No recognition is provided for good performance by contractors.
