    Bland Internship

    Former Employee - Staff Engineer

    I worked at Entergy as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Felt very welcome as an intern
    On the site specific safety training is applicable to outside industry as well
    Very competitive intern pay

    Cons

    Work enviroment was a little uptight and bland with younger engineers getting frowned at for making polite conversation and joking during lunch break.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Business casual dress should equate to a more casual atmosphere

    Pros

    Good benefits, the alternate Friday off is an excellent benefit

    Cons

    Too many levels of levels between entry level and management which can be discouraging to the millenial generation, who my choose to move on to other opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow easier communication between employees and senior level management by hosting town hall style events with Senior Management

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

    Pros

    Working at Entergy in the call center was enjoyable. The pay was great. I loved that team spirit was promoted. Safety was practiced and not just preached. Everyone got along with everyone.

    Cons

    I did not like it when storms threatened near or far. You knew there'd be over time and if a hurricane came to our area some of the people would have to stay with the company instead of leaving with family. But it was all a part of the job so you got used to it while disliking it.

    Pros

    You work with a great bunch of guys, learn a lot about linewoirk itself and safety, and most of all the skills you learn will never leave you.

    Cons

    Unless you like being away from home or being on call 24/7, and of course every company has those guys that nobody wants to be around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When I worked there I was going through some personal problems. Management needs to learn to look for the signs. I resigned because I didn't have a choice but I also think my supervisor had it out for me.

    Former Employee - Engineering Intern in The Woodlands, TX

    I worked at Entergy

    Pros

    I felt like Entergy enabled me to take on new challenges, and I feel like I contributed to the company. I learned so much while working there. They were more than willing to let me get out to the field which was a big plus.

    Cons

    Depending on where you live, the work locations aren't the best. Working in power generation means working at sites that are away from the city.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up. Everyone I met in upper management had been with the company for a long time and were experienced in their fields.
