    I worked at LG&E and KU Energy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pto and benefits. That's about it.

    Cons

    Promote people based on how long they've been there despite the fact that those people are not qualified in anyway for that position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more about people and leas about politics. Also, discussing politics and religion at work is frowned upon. Stop encouraging it.

    I worked at LG&E and KU Energy

    Pros

    The benefits are the best you will find within the surrounding area. The management wants to make sure their employees are well taken care of in that area.

    Cons

    The company does advance the employees as much as they can. People don't leave the company so there is really no where for some people to advance to. Sometimes if a person only has so much education or experience, they can be stuck in a position for a very long time. There is no growth chance for the person in that way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more to the lower level employees, customer reps, admins, secretaries

    Pros

    I think the best reason to work at Louisville Gas & Electric Company is the benefits and the security of the industry.

    Cons

    The worse part of working at Louisville Gas & Electric Company is the on-call that is required everyday of the year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the management is doing a very good job of leading Louisville Gas & Electric Comapny and Kentucky Utilities.

    Pros

    Safe during economic downturn, well capitalized and committed to renewables business

    Cons

    poor management skills in certain areas, little established advancement opportunity initiatives

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    focus more on managment skills and styles when hiring people and less on technical pieces. Management is about experience, but it also is management of PEOPLE. Some people are smart and experienced but cannot manage people. Pay more attention to this.
