    Pros

    Entergy really cares for their employees. Many plants were union, and at our plant the union and management had a very great relationship.

    Cons

    Entergy caught a lot of employees off guard by announcing the closure of Vermont Yankee after spending many millions of dollars and months fighting the state of Vermont about licensing.

    Advice to Management

    Be more forthcoming about the possibility of closing the plant as the costs of litigation kept increasing. I was fortunate to leave before sudden unemployment.

    Pros

    Management is extremely forgiving and patient. Once you reach the senior director level it will really be held accountable for delivering results.

    Cons

    The nuclear plants are declining in every area that can be measured. INPO scores, NRC inspections, capacity factor, etc. A long time ago this company had potential but poor business decisions have ruined it. Failed mergers, failed spinoff attempts and other management blunders have siphoned off hundreds of millions of dollars for absolutely no gain.

    Advice to Management

    None. They are too arrogant to listen and too incompetent to act upon it even if they cared.

    Pros

    Customer was great! They were easy to work with under enterprise SDLC stage gating

    Cons

    HCL America violated federal law by putting H1B Visa employees on contract

    Advice to Management

    Everyone quit, the Director, my mentor moved back to Alabama and the person who picked up my projects was fried because HCL was double billing so they blamed his estimates.
