    Pros

    Paid better than most jobs in the surrounding area.

    Cons

    Co-workers didn't pull their share of the work and management didn't do anything about it. Old boys club with women delegated to support positions.

    Advice to Management

    Quit playing favorites with employees and applying different standards to different people.

    Pros

    Excellent, dedicated coworkers who care about the work they do. Flexible work schedule in that every other Friday is a day off. Strong benefits.

    Cons

    To get the Friday off, the work day is 10 hours Monday-Friday, with an additional 8 hours on your Friday "on." Senior Leadership is somewhat isolated from the rank and file; middle managers tend to be very territorial and cliquish. Career development is encouraged and training is available, but actual advancement is limited in most career fields and non-existent in others.

    Pros

    Nice schedule, love the team members I interact with on a daily basis

    Cons

    Uncertainty in the future of the company; revolving door of new hires; raises/promotions are not based on merit, but who you know to open a position for you; Inadequately trained supervisors; upper management has no clue about their employees, nor shown any interest in getting to know them; lack of communication from upper management & Supervisors with their employees; unprofessional supervisors who lack leadership skills and initiative; little opportunity for growth; IT help desk is now horrible after being outsourced

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to actually get to know your current employees and the tasks they perform daily; Have adequate and thorough training for new hires as well as refresher training for current employees, including CSS/Supervisor/CSM, etc; Show your employees that you appreciate the work that's done and promoting those who are actually qualified, as opposed to length of service only; There are some outstanding employees in the company, that are being overlooked; Implement job shadowing program; I'd be surprised to see Entergy still operating 10 years from now, due to so much outsourcing- just remember: you get what you pay for and sometimes cheaper does not mean better.
