    Pros

    Pay is excellent. Many available jobs.

    Cons

    If you are the nail that "sticks out", you will be rapidly hammered down. Insurance is poor. They are self-insured, administered by Aetna. Schedule trumps quality, every time.

    Advice to Management

    Individual Contributors are the backbone of your company. Try involving them in your decisions.

    Pros

    401k and pension that's it this place is terrible.

    Cons

    Terrible company to work for. Good old boy network in full effect, Supervisors constantly lie, are not well trained when it comes to soft skills such as dealing with your subordinates. Work life balance is non existent and you are constantly forced for overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to your people, actually hold supervisors and upper management accountable.

    I worked at Entergy Nuclear full-time

    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.

    I worked at Entergy Nuclear full-time (More than 8 years)

    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.
