    I have been working at Entergy full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working at Entergy was enjoyable for the most part. The best thing I can say about it was that it was challenging.

    Cons

    Very poor work life balance. Compensation was competitive but lower than some other companies in the nuclear industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Post HCM org chart needs work. There are many positions that are not adequately staffed.

    Pros

    Good company to work for, has excellent benifits and bonus pay. Saleries are acceptable and in line with the rest of the utility industry.

    Cons

    Plant closings and employee layoffs have created an atmosphere of unsatisfaction amongst the workforce. Employees are constantly looking over thier shoulder what is going to happen next.

    Pros

    If you're looking to learn how to deal with customers from the good through the bad you'll love it here. It teaches you so much in dealing with customer satisfaction. Really good pay compared to the standard minimum wage.

    Cons

    There was always a time limit on doing calls. Overtime during storms with only one particular center open especially when a storm just touched down right near you. It's a call center job.
