    Pros

    From 1981 till I retired in 2003 PPL, Nuclear, was the place to work. Money was good in drafting and your work was appreciated

    Cons

    Turbulent times after I retired with medical costs going thru the ceiling. Only in the very begining of my career did I contribute to medical insurance. No cost medical cost was the talk from the management rep explained that there was no cost to the retiree, just look at the past. Bull I pay $370+ per month. Cheap by all standards but unexpected

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the little things to show employees that you appreciate the work done each department. Reinstate the act of giving the small gifts when schedules are met.


  2. "PPL is stable and compensates well."
