    I have been working at Entergy full-time (More than 5 years)

    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.

    I worked at Entergy as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Provided opportunities to learn from many departments since the substation, Tline and relay group were all on the same floor. Flexible with the hours you can work as long as you maintained 80 between the two weeks. Got to ride in a helicopter to inspect faults on lines and went out in the field multiple times.

    Cons

    Some days were slow. Found myself doing a certain multiple times in different to pass the time. Even though it was good experience, would have like more responsibility.
