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

    PPL paid above average wages and great benfits.

    Cons

    PPL, in recent years, seemed to regrad its employees as throw-aways. Management seldom provided feedback for jobs well-done. Rather they focued on the negative. New managers from outside the company did not know the culture of the current employees, and failed to care about the years of serivce of the employees of them legacy companies.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on generation and wholesalre markets. Electric Utilties is nothing more than an annoyance in ttoday's marketplace. Please listed to what emplyees have to say and allow them to have an opinion.
