    1. Hierarchical and political

    Pros

    The benefits are great. We receive higher than industry average pay. The benefits are good too. We get to go to training events annually, insurances are good, and we get an annual bonus and quarterly bonuses.

    Cons

    Management can give raises based on favoritism. I've seen a Technician make Supervisor, stay in that position less than a year, and then make Operations Superintendent. The guy had no leadership, management, or supervisory skills at all.

    Advice to Management

    Give raises and promotions based on merit, work ethic, and how self motivated and individual is and not by how much rear end one kisses. Moral will improve.

    Pros

    Great work schedule. Get the option to choose your work schedule.

    Cons

    Only way to move up or get promoted in the company is to tell on others(Gossip).

    Advice to Management

    Utilize the talents that you already have in the company instead of always paying thousands of dollars more to hire outside of the company.

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

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to move around and learn more.

    Big company with diverse job types that you usually don't have access to in New Orleans.

    Cons

    Very political with a lot of incompetence in middle management--a lot of lifers trying to win the c-suite lottery. No accountability at the middle and top, very hierarchy-driven. There is a culture of blaming downward--if someone gives you an assignment that they have been sitting on for 4 wks or planned poorly they hand it off to you for a 2-day turnaround with no apologies, explanations, or plans about how to avoid this in the future.

    Advice to Management

    Hold people accountable for quality in projects. Deadlines are easily manipulated and incentives are not aligned with effective performance. Learn the fast-cheap-good triangle and know that things cannot meet all 3 criteria.
