    I worked at Duke Energy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The pay is decent, but not what it used to be with the recent layoffs and cut backs.

    Cons

    It's a really uptight atmosphere. If you think you'd enjoy working at Google, you will not like it there. It's a sad place to work and all of upper management, have very little care or value of employees. I saw people with 20 years with the company, get dismissed with a week's notice, some with none. Like many companies, the employees are great, but "management" is feckless, and biased. It is the antithesis of what happy, tightknit family-run businesses are about.

    I have been working at Duke Energy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Schedule, overtime, uniforms provided, safe job practises

    Cons

    You will start as an contractor, it might take you 5-6 years before or if they will move you to Duke side. There is no communication from upper management about posibilities of getting the Duke position. While working as a contractor, no benefits, raise is about 18 cents a year ( yes no joke), no bonuses, no promises of keeping the employment, no retirement. So, before you quit your career, which has all the benefits with retirement, raises, days off, payed holidays and get sucked into empty promises at Duke Energy think twice. It is very sad to say but it is not worth it......

    Pros

    Overall company has a positive culture, competitive pay, and nice work life balance

    Cons

    Many particular organizations are a nightmare to work in. Upper management in those particular organization battle for their piece of the pie in terms of power and within the organization. It leads to constant rework, few firm decisions, and a negative working atmosphere. Overall, those organizations destroy company value and make it easy to resign and move on to work elsewhere.
