    Pros

    Excellent, dedicated coworkers who care about the work they do. Flexible work schedule in that every other Friday is a day off. Strong benefits.

    Cons

    To get the Friday off, the work day is 10 hours Monday-Friday, with an additional 8 hours on your Friday "on." Senior Leadership is somewhat isolated from the rank and file; middle managers tend to be very territorial and cliquish. Career development is encouraged and training is available, but actual advancement is limited in most career fields and non-existent in others.

    Pros

    Working at Entergy was enjoyable for the most part. The best thing I can say about it was that it was challenging.

    Cons

    Very poor work life balance. Compensation was competitive but lower than some other companies in the nuclear industry.

    Advice to Management

    Post HCM org chart needs work. There are many positions that are not adequately staffed.

    Pros

    They used to be one of the best IT shop to work for, not anymore. They pay their employees well.

    Cons

    IT has been outsourced for the past 14 years. The remaining IT staff are pencil pushers, admin type positions for the most part. They recently replaced Leidos (SAIC) with HCL. It looks like the goal is to offshore as many IT positions as possible to India, things are not looking good...
    Very un-American move, wish leaders were more aware of their actions and had more love for their country and fellow Americans.

    Advice to Management

    In-source IT back, it is the backbone of the company.

    Pros

    The pros of the the company are the money and the benefits of being an employees. You can have a long career if you play good politics.

    Cons

    Too much politics and nepotism. Too many engineers in business operations jobs and there is no true and honest filter on management. You can be targeted and forced to work without proper pay if it helps certain egos or feelings

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time making sure the people that are actually working in the company have more of a say so in what happens
