    Former Employee - Lineman Apprentice/Journeyman in Madison, MS

    I worked at Entergy full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    You 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.

    Cons

    Unless 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 ManagementAdvice

    When 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.

    I worked at Entergy

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Current Employee - Nuclear Professional in New Orleans, LA

    I have been working at Entergy full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Used to be a great comapny to work for.

    Cons

    Cannot 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 ManagementAdvice

    Please 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.

    I have been working at Entergy

    Pros

    Management 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.

    Cons

    Only 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 ManagementAdvice

    They 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!!!!

    Former Employee - OPs Management

    I worked at Entergy full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    Too 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 ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time making sure the people that are actually working in the company have more of a say so in what happens

    Pros

    Lots of dedicated workers trying to do the best!

    Cons

    Not everyone is motivated and some have to pick up the slack, but I guess that's pretty much anywhere

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward those who work to improve the atmosphere and quality of work! Keep lines of communication open between employees and upper management.
