PPL is a great company to work for, with a variety of jobs offered.

Co-Op (Former Employee)
Allentown, PA (US)

I worked at PPL as an intern for less than a year

ProsPPL is expanding their career opportunities due to a retiring workforce. The company is very stable, offering a lot of job security. Benefits are good. Everyone is friendly. There is a lot of flexibility for lateral and vertical job changes within the company.

ConsNot the place to be if you're looking to work on cutting edge projects as an engineer. There is a lot of following of procedure, and not much original design work.

An employer with an A reputation where I work with many talented people

Applications Developer (Current Employee)
Allentown, PA (US)

I have been working at PPL full-time for more than 5 years

ProsExcellent job security, great benefits, large company with room for both vertical and lateral moves, effort is rewarded

ConsLike all large companies, they are conservative and can tend to be process-bound

Advice to Senior ManagementTry your best to identify areas where we can simplify and speed up workflows. Endeavor to increase rewards for effort and not just longevity. Continue your policy of encouraging personal and workplace safety.
