I worked at PPL as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Excellent senior management in PPL Generation. Offers employees lots of travel time and exposure to many different facets of the Electric Utilities Industry.

Cons

The tasks I received were not very difficult or time consuming. Most of my time was sent looking for tasks from other people in the group

Advice to Management

More interns and recent graduate positions are necessary in the Generation segment of the company due to the number of near retirement age employees.

    I have been working at PPL full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent wages and benefits for both management and union employees. Management environment encourages intellectual creativity and advancement. Career advancement opportunities available for individuals who demonstrate a willingness and ability to assume more responsibility.

    Cons

    Disabled adverse environment! Micromanagement style is prevalent within many departments. Culture which promotes job security through fear tactics. Employee annual review process in negatively based. Promotes work life over family life.

    Advice to Management

    When an employee becomes disabled (i.e. paraplegic) they should be given the opportunity to show they can still perform their job and not be automatically placed on long term disability for the rest of their potential career. This is especially applicable to nonphysically demanding management positions. Allow employees who become disabled the opportunity to return to employment. Dont throw them away!

    I have been working at PPL full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Many career fields within the company, competitive salaries, bonuses, and pretty darn good benefits.

    Cons

    Communications lacking in many instances, ties to the old command and control environment still linger, hiring process not completely transparent yet.

    Advice to Management

    More timely communications with employees regarding all aspects of the company would be beneficial. Move a little faster toward embracing the ideas and culture that will be needed to hire and retain the younger generation enetering the workforce now- the baby boomers, while important and have the knowledge base at this time, are on their way out. Hire new people earlier to ensure smoother transitions and greater knowledge transfer.
