    Pros

    Good pay, benefits, and co-workers

    Cons

    Working under the constant fear that if you make any mistake you will lose your job. Those mistakes can range from anything obvious to anything upper management wants to define as an error in order to punish a non-favorite employee. Promotions for undeserving individuals who get to move up in the corporate ladder every few months, only because they are favorites of upper management, not because they are capable of performing in the new role or even in their current role. Many of those individuals will trample on those under them in order to advance their own career. Department is constantly under staffed because of such a high turn over rate combined with how long of a training process new hires must undergo.

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

    Pros

    Good Pay for Union Members

    Cons

    Too much employee turnover. No care about employee well being. Supervisors and Managers are inexperienced, the company only cares about someone who can control employees. They will move you from job to job based off of where you are needed most.

    I have been working at PPL

    Pros

    Distribution System Operations is a good place to be. If things need to change they can change. There are people willing to support. Turning the lights back on is satisfying. There is an honest focus on making sure customers are back as soon and safely as possible. Pay is good. They have a nice setup with DMS doing some of the switching for us. Bonus & get paid overtime.

    Cons

    THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH SYSTEM OPERATORS. They are not hiring fast enough to replace the people leaving. Change seems to take a long time. Business model seems to be heavily dependent on getting paid for capital improvement projects. This does not seem sustainable. Some of the supervisors are making it hard for some folks to stay. Doing admin for all of the things we do can get old. Overtime is 1.0x not 1.5x.
