    I have been working at Entergy full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    NONE- Keep out of this LOSER COMPANY!

    Cons

    LEO Denault the CEO has eliminated pensions for new employees, increased retiree MEDICAL preiums by 100%, closed Plants and lined his own pockets with huge bonuses, salary and benefits. After all- he has KIDS that need to go to IVY LEAGUE COLLEGES and become CEOs! Raises are non existent for individual contributors. Bonus was cut in half by Bill MOHL and the board. Yet they are giving tens on millions to States and other utilities in profits to buy silence and better relations. LEO's Motto- I GOT MINE- SCREW YOU!
    Morale has never been lower and Leo Denault will destroy Entergy but enrich himself!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    FIRE LEO. Try to restore morale and quit lining the pockets of CEOs and executives! Leo admitted that he is just another FLUNKY BEANCOUNTER! WAY TOO MANY MEETINGS AND VPS ,DIRECTORS AND SR MANGERS who add NO Value and DO NOTHING!

    THIS CAN BE an opportunity to restore Entergy to more productivity and profitability!

    I worked at Entergy full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I cannot think of any pros at the moment. Some employees have tremendous growth opportunities, but that is only if you are great at playing the office politics game.

    Cons

    There are too many to list. But mainly the uncertainty of the organization, The employees are not sure if the company will be around much longer. The morale of the organization is at an all time low. The turnover in the HR department is soaring which is causing stress and triple workload for remaining employees. Bad leadership and line management is all over the company. Employees have no rights.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your managers to know how to manage people along with the processes that they manage.

    I have been working at Entergy

    Pros

    Management is a bunch of snakes in the grass. Upper management does not care or want to hear about problems, they just stick your fingers in their ears and say "la la la". You do get alternating Fridays off, but BEWARE DO NOT TAKE THEM OFF!!!! This is a test to see if you are committed. If you take your Friday's off, management will not like you.

    Cons

    Only single people without children and a life will excel and be able to move up. If you have a family, be prepared to get a divorce like most managers and directors at this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They didn't listen when I was there, why would they listen now. The HCM project that you just went through and laid off over 1,000 people was nothing but a vote for idiot managers to select their friends. Good luck with this decision in 5-7 years when you have to pay over millions of dollars to consultants to fix the mess you made!!!!

    I have been working at Entergy full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Used to be a great comapny to work for.

    Cons

    Cannot trust current leadership. HCM killed the value of the employee.
    Expect the company will not exist in 5 years.
    Company survey was conducted at the end of 2013, and the comapny administering the survey stated that they have never seen such low scores. Will take years for the company to recover (if at all). Great job in destroying a company !!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please listen to your staff and your regulators. At the end of 2013, the INPO CEO stated that the nuclear industry fears that Entergy nuclear will cause the next Fukashima accident.

    I worked at Entergy full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Money, benefits, plant cleanliness, safety.

    Cons

    Good old boy network is very prevalent. Good people are overworked, slackers get free ride.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give all employees lie detector test and ask how they got their job and are they related by blood or marriage to any other employees. Nepotism can kill incentive among employees that are not in the good nold boy network.

    I worked at Entergy

    Pros

    It may be considered to be one of the better employers in an area where there may be few other options with Fortune 500 companies.

    Cons

    Incompetent management. Healthcare with poor coverage including a $1000 deductable

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not place sr. leaders into roles that they are not qualified by either work experience or degree to oversee.
