    Great pay, but very demanding

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsExcellent compensation and benefits; a lot of corporate knowledge among the workers - many have been with the plants since construction (30+ years).

    ConsVery demanding work schedule; normal work week is four 10-hour days, but the reality is that you work five 12-14 hour days just to keep up. Work is very reactionary and there is very little time to lean forward to get ahead of work requirements

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe new supply chain organization needs work; put more focus on the sites to give them the resources they need to excel. Site priorities are not in-line with supply chain priorities.

    Good company, Poor management

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPay is great, Everyone at the company has the will and desire to work.

    ConsEverything takes 4 times as long as it needs to be due to management interference. Or poor management. Supervisors often do not speak up and back there employees to higher management. Management is open to here employee concerns but then does nothing in response.

    My experience at Entergy Nuclear was very unsatisfactory. Management is disorganized and the union is over paid children

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management needs to take a good look in the mirror and actual take pro active measures and reclaim their role as leaders.

    Stable job but very stressful.
