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.

    I have been working at Entergy

    Pros

    Salaries are high for this area. A clean and safe work enviroment with a heavy focus on personnal safety.

    Cons

    Stressful at times and if a Nuclear Unit trips offline it can mean long hours and call out. This is not an exciting or cutting edge high tech technical career path. Nuclear is a technically conservative business by necessity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more employees. We have lost a lot of skilled people through attrition and we are beginning to feel the effect, big time.

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

    Pros

    Competitive salary, benefits, vacation, etc. Most people are a joy to work with. Moving around within the company is encouraged, especially if you want to advance. Many job changes that require a move allow most moving expenses to be covered by the company's relocation package. Consideration for families, including flexible schedules and alternating Fridays off.

    Cons

    The work atmosphere tends to vary among the many locations. Some locations tend to over work employees more than others. The employee evaluation/rating system is antiquated, too simplified, and does not take into account all of the various factors that make a good employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most of the management I have encountered is actually there for a reason, and that is a good thing. Continue to promote those individuals that are knowledgeable and capable of the increased responsibility. Adopt a new method of evaluating employees that paints a clearer picture of what each person brings to the table.
