  1.  

    I have been working at PPL Electric

    Pros

    There is an abundance of knowledge in ISD and it's really easy to expand your knowledge base as well as move around in the company.

    Cons

    Management seems to be too focused on metrics as opposed to the actual work that employees are performing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become more engaged in the actual work performed by employees.

    I have been working at PPL Electric full-time

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are great. Not worth putting up with the lazy passive agressive workforce.

    Cons

    Strange passive aggressive culture. Entitlement attitude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thin out the dead weight.

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

    Pros

    Very cohesive atmosphere
    They set you up in apartments with all the other interns which created a really fun community
    The commute was very short
    Most of the staff is retiring soon so there are great opportunities for advancement

    Cons

    Allentown wasn't the greatest place to be
    It did not have a lot of young people around

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you set up something that interns would work together with some of their peers, I think that would increase retention

    I have been working at PPL Electric

    Pros

    The beat part of working for PPL Electric utilities is the pay scale and the people who work there are great. Always there to help you.

    Cons

    It's hard to move up. Even if you have all credentials for the job you are over looked because they know who they want to hire.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a lot of great talent located all over the company. You really need to look at the talent within the company and give someone a chance that may not have all the skills.

    Pros

    Excellent Work Life Balance, not overwhelming, satisfying experience overall as an intern. Really got me immersed in how businesses work.

    Cons

    A lot of down time, people seem to take their time here. At least where I was.

    I worked at PPL Electric full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The workers are the best. They care and know the business. That is about all the company has going for it.

    Cons

    There are a lot of favorites that are played. Each group that come seems to not have a clue. This is a company that should focus more on safety not politics!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at PPL Electric

    Pros

    Great benefits. Vacation policy based on age, not years of service.

    Cons

    Does not value experience of long term employees. Upper management brings in new managers who worked with them at their former companies.
