I worked at PPL full-time (More than 8 years)
Competitive salary and benefits, dedicated employees, each day is different which makes the work exciting and challenging.
Limited opportunities for promotion/growth unless you live in Allentown (headquarters). Major changes in management have caused significant issues and a fear based environment. Constant restructuring and downsizing, employees being replaced with contractors, constructive culture is preached but no longer practiced. Good employees are jumping ship....
Advice to Management
You care so much about the numbers that you stopped caring about the employees. You've lost your focus on quality and are sending the message that perception matters, not reality. The fear based environment you've created promotes employee compliance but not commitment.
I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at PPL (Allentown, PA (US)).
Head Hunter reached out to me via LinkedIn. Had several positive sessions with them and took an interview at the HQ in Allentown, PA. Took the first slot, which one of the interviewers was late for. They asked me to go through my resume and it seemed to be their first time reviewing it. I attempted to have a more natural, conversational interview but they were very rigorous in their process. They didn't offer water yet they all had beverages. The behavioral questions were OK. It seemed to be a good interview and I received positive reviews at the end of it with some assurance that I would fit into several roles, yet only so much can be covered in less than 90 minutes.
