    Great career opportunity.

    Lineman Apprentice/Journeyman (Former Employee)
    Madison, MS

    ProsYou work with a great bunch of guys, learn a lot about linewoirk itself and safety, and most of all the skills you learn will never leave you.

    ConsUnless you like being away from home or being on call 24/7, and of course every company has those guys that nobody wants to be around.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen I worked there I was going through some personal problems. Management needs to learn to look for the signs. I resigned because I didn't have a choice but I also think my supervisor had it out for me.

    Variety of opportunities; uncertain future

    Electrical Engineer (Current Employee)
    Jackson, MS

    ProsFlexible work schedule (8 10-hour days with every other Friday off); solid pay; good benefits; great variety of job opportunities and growth; very project-driven environment

    ConsUncertain future: company has attempted to spin-off transmission business many times; weak training process for new employees; disconnect between upper level management and contributing employees

    Great internship experience

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat exposure, get to see the power plant, challenging and interesting, and allow you to learn things across groups

    ConsAs with most internships, it is work for the employees to provide work for the interns, so some days were idle.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    WOLF IN SHEEP CLOTHING!!!!!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsManagement is a bunch of snakes in the grass. Upper management does not care or want to hear about problems, they just stick your fingers in their ears and say "la la la". You do get alternating Fridays off, but BEWARE DO NOT TAKE THEM OFF!!!! This is a test to see if you are committed. If you take your Friday's off, management will not like you.

    ConsOnly single people without children and a life will excel and be able to move up. If you have a family, be prepared to get a divorce like most managers and directors at this company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey didn't listen when I was there, why would they listen now. The HCM project that you just went through and laid off over 1,000 people was nothing but a vote for idiot managers to select their friends. Good luck with this decision in 5-7 years when you have to pay over millions of dollars to consultants to fix the mess you made!!!!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Company has been pretty good to work for.

    Supply Chain Professional (Current Employee)

    ProsGenerally good compensation for strong performers.
    Large company, alot of enterprise resources to bring to bear to resolve issues
    Flexible hours. Great people.

    ConsBenefits keep getting reduced or cost more money.
    Dont always pay for performance.
    Locations of Corporate and Nuclear Offices are not in the best locations (New Orleans, Jackson, MS)

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe people are your most valuable asset

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    HCM (Human Capital Management) sends employee morale to zero

    Nuclear Professional (Current Employee)
    New Orleans, LA

    ProsUsed to be a great comapny to work for.

    ConsCannot trust current leadership. HCM killed the value of the employee.
    Expect the company will not exist in 5 years.
    Company survey was conducted at the end of 2013, and the comapny administering the survey stated that they have never seen such low scores. Will take years for the company to recover (if at all). Great job in destroying a company !!

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease listen to your staff and your regulators. At the end of 2013, the INPO CEO stated that the nuclear industry fears that Entergy nuclear will cause the next Fukashima accident.

    Good solid work, opportunities to move up are possible if you're connected

    OPs Management (Former Employee)

    ProsThe pros of the the company are the money and the benefits of being an employees. You can have a long career if you play good politics.

    ConsToo much politics and nepotism. Too many engineers in business operations jobs and there is no true and honest filter on management. You can be targeted and forced to work without proper pay if it helps certain egos or feelings

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpend more time making sure the people that are actually working in the company have more of a say so in what happens

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
