    I have been working at PPL full-time

    Pros

    Good salary and excellent benefits, mostly good people. Great opportunities for advancement due to lots of retirements. Lots of different types of jobs and the ability to move around within company. Making strides towards greater diversity.

    Cons

    Has just gone through spinn-off. People are overworked and stressed.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the hard work and resilience of everyone who survived the spin. Sometimes it feels like no matter what we do its not enough.
