Great Pay, too much paperwork and bs

I have been working at PPL

ProsThe pay is great and your job is pretty much guaranteed unless you really screw up. Also there should be opportunities as time goes on because the workforce is getting very old.

ConsToo much paperwork, management is disconnected from the employees, the answer to fixing things is to add another layer of paperwork to get something done. Management is scared to fire trouble employees and still give them raises.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs to simplify the way things are done at the organization and they also need to grow a backbone to support their employees. It could be a great company if there was a true vision.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
