I worked at PPL as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Excellent senior management in PPL Generation. Offers employees lots of travel time and exposure to many different facets of the Electric Utilities Industry.

Cons

The tasks I received were not very difficult or time consuming. Most of my time was sent looking for tasks from other people in the group

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More interns and recent graduate positions are necessary in the Generation segment of the company due to the number of near retirement age employees.

    Pros

    Excellent wages and benefits for both management and union employees. Management environment encourages intellectual creativity and advancement. Career advancement opportunities available for individuals who demonstrate a willingness and ability to assume more responsibility.

    Cons

    Disabled adverse environment! Micromanagement style is prevalent within many departments. Culture which promotes job security through fear tactics. Employee annual review process in negatively based. Promotes work life over family life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When an employee becomes disabled (i.e. paraplegic) they should be given the opportunity to show they can still perform their job and not be automatically placed on long term disability for the rest of their potential career. This is especially applicable to nonphysically demanding management positions. Allow employees who become disabled the opportunity to return to employment. Dont throw them away!
