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

    Pros

    Pay is ok. People are nice. Coworkers have a good work ethic.

    Cons

    No work life balance. They expect you to work way past your normal hours and to bring work home with you. Project management is utter chaos. No diversity and very much a boys club mentality probably cause it's a utility business.

    Advice to Management

    Communication needs to improve between project managers and engineers. Stop giving out so many projects to engineers with unattainable deadlines. Work on employee development as well

    Pros

    Learned a lot from the planning group. Great team.

    Cons

    Career growth is challenging in a group of 13,000+ people.

    Advice to Management

    Create more growth opportunities past Sr level for engineers. A good performing engineer can reach the Sr level in 6-8 years and remain there for the rest of his career with the company. Not motivating.

    Don’t hire no qualified for the job. Hire based of who you know especially the entergy gas construction supervisor are a joke

    Advice to Management

    Look into what’s going on with the hiring process instead of turning the other way
