    Pros

    Great benefits and pay rate

    Cons

    No degree means you don't advance

    Advice to Management

    People are looked over for jobs because they don't have a degree even if they have the experience.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at LG&E and KU Energy full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Salaries and benefits are generally above average.

    Cons

    HR will support management, whether right or wrong, if a conflict occurs between a manager and an employee. Very hierarchical management structure. Senior management seems to consider themselves an elite group.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate managers not only for effectiveness, but to ensure their management style is in line with company culture; facilitate 360 degree annual reviews and include the managers' direct reports.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at LG&E and KU Energy

    Pros

    Ample free time to search for a new job Pay is pretty "in the middle"

    Cons

    Benefits are lacking. Antiquated technology in use that no one knows how it works. Far behind in upgrades, updates, etc. Would rather pay a contractor more to do the work than folks who have been around for a few years. Broken communication between directors, managers. Expectations of others, depends on who you know...

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your employees like they're in middle school (as others on here have stated). Start listening to what they have to say (some have experience from other companies).
