    Pros

    Great scale of wages. Actually overpriced for what they do. Offers incentive bonus based on performance.

    Cons

    HRO management (specifically lower and mid level have no training allowing them to understand and mentor their staff. Abuse of power at supervisor level is not uncommon in this organization by this level of management. they exhibit hostile and negative behavior to subordinates. They wukk balk at any idea that might challenge their own and have been know to target employees that challenge with disciplinary actions.
    Lack of developmental opportunities and job enrichment makes for a stagnant employees. There is NO clear direction and with the Shared Services environment those that are not in teh HR department are left to feel like trained monkeys as they are considered the "paper pusher" and their input for strategic projects is not sought out by managment within either HR or HRO.

    Advice to Management

    Offer training an leadership classes and mentoring to those individuals who move into Supervisor roles so they are not bullies to their employees or to employees in other groups. Put a 360 review system in place for new supervisors so that employees can communicate the issues and upper management can work to grow and develop them in position. Quit worrying about proving there opportunites and promoting unqualified and mean people to management.

    I have been working at Entergy full-time

    Pros

    Salary is decent for the work being done. The work isn't overly complicated and there are a lot of great people at the site.

    Cons

    Salaried employees get taken advantage of, especially engineers. You never get overtime or comp time except in the refueling outage, which is to be expected at a plant. However, if you have a light week, you still have to log a minimum of 40 hours that week. Anytime the plant trips, you come in, so quality of life is terrible. Also, you will only get 2 weeks of vacation a year for the first 6 years.

    If you plan on getting promoted early, just be aware that you will get the title, just dont expect the raise to be based off merit, it's based off time. Wouldn't be a problem except the site constantly reaffirms that promotions are based off merit.

    Advice to Management

    Put your employees first instead of your career. You should be thinking "How can I make my employees life better, can I get them a better raise or bonus?" not "How can I save the company money, how low can I make my employees raise without them quitting on the spot?"

    There is an internal problem with operations. You will manage e every job from beginning to end. The job is not for those who are not go-getters.
