    Pros

    Competitive salaries, reasonable expectations from leaders and a company that is trying to understand its organizational health and made positive changes

    Cons

    Changes are too slow to happen -- especially in the nuclear division -- and the inertia threatens the prospect of any real positive change ever occurring.

    Advice to Management

    Need to get the nuclear ops side of the business in order or it will threaten the broader company objectives and drag down the stock performance. Change must happen quicker.

    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.

    Pros

    The job has flexible hours wjich provides a great schedule. The pay is good because of mileage and annual bonuses.

    Cons

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Please fix the operational problems. Employees will continue to leave if there is no accountability.

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

    Pros

    Extremely dedicated employees, many of which have been with the company for decades. It is very common for employees to start their careers with, and then retire from, the company. The benefits are excellent and there is tremendous opportunity to work in lots of different jobs and functions.

    Cons

    If you want to advance expect long hours and a heavy workload. Sometimes projects or emergencies (e.g., hurricanes) will come up unexpectedly and you will need to work nights/weekends to get everything done that needs to be done. Very very few women in senior positions.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on developing women rather than just paying lip service to it.
