    I have been working at PPL full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I'm really enjoying my adventure at PPL. The mission of protecting the power grid is one that is easy to get your hands around, thus everyone understands what they are working for and why. Leadership is driving a number of really fun transformation initiatives within the business units and in IT that are extremely valuable for my resume. Last but not least, I really enjoy the work/life balance that the company attempts to provide everyone. I highly recommend considering opportunities at PPL Electric Utilities.

    Cons

    If you've never worked at a Utility, there's a lot to learn, however, the long-term employees are more than happy to share their knowledge. Change seems to be a constant as well, so if you want a boring, mundane opportunity, don't look here.

    The hiring manager explained the role then asked questions about work experience and education to make sure I'm the right fit for the role. The phone interview lasted for twenty minutes. Waiting for a call to let me know If I am accepted.
