I will use this evaluation as a tool for understanding Duke Energy's financial strength and to evaluate whether or not it will be a good fit for my professional career and lifestyle. Although a companies financial strength is more than the financial information you see in their financial statements like; company relations, employee satisfaction, and customer satisfaction.

The History of Duke will include how the company got started, their goals and mission and how long the company has been in business. The history will also include the economy's major Boom's and how Duke Energy managed to pull through and maintain in business.

Using financial ratios will provide a better comparison platform to compare and evaluate Duke Energy within their relative industry benchmarks. Upon Completion of this evaluation, I will be able to make a sound decision on the financial stability of Duke energy, and whether or not I will be accepting the management position.
