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

    Pros

    Wonderful opportunity to kick start your career through the internship program at PPL. Gained valuable corporate knowledge and an understanding of the business process. Great pay, opportunity to meet and network with many professionals, and experience in a fortune 500 company.

    Not many downsides. Work schedule for interns was not very structured. Often not given enough work. Lack of several good networking events. More information sessions would have been a nice feature.
