Pros

The 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.

Cons

Too 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 Management

Management 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.

    Pros

    From 1981 till I retired in 2003 PPL, Nuclear, was the place to work. Money was good in drafting and your work was appreciated

    Cons

    Turbulent times after I retired with medical costs going thru the ceiling. Only in the very begining of my career did I contribute to medical insurance. No cost medical cost was the talk from the management rep explained that there was no cost to the retiree, just look at the past. Bull I pay $370+ per month. Cheap by all standards but unexpected

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the little things to show employees that you appreciate the work done each department. Reinstate the act of giving the small gifts when schedules are met.


  2. PPL is stable and compensates well.
