    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Entergy as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great employee atmosphere, laid back, hard working and generally pleasant. Pay was very, very good for the work performed, schedule was very flexible.

    Cons

    Arbitrary and caprecious policies, overly redundant systems, too many managers working the same projects, all with competing interests and none with "final say so." The end results were often cobbled together compromises that fit none of the project requirements but added multiple layers of inefficiency.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate more on the goal and let the SMEs determine the path to the goal. Learn to tell the SME what you want, not how you want to get there.

    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.
