Mainframe DBA (Former Employee) –  New Orleans and Little RockJuly 23, 2017
Excellent working employee with broad experience and strong programming computer and engineering background.
Pay is good and you get excellent experiences of a broad nature.
The negatives are that you get no social experiences and your contributions are often less seen and less valued because of being remote from other workers.
thank you.

Financially beneficial, good location, but plenty of downside
Instrument and Control Design Engineer (Current Employee) –  Plymouth, MAJune 25, 2017
The plant is closing in the next two years. Management does not appreciate the employees or out of work lifestyle. Management demands lots of unpaid "professional" time while they pay contractors for every hour to do a lesser quality work. The benefits are okay, but Entergy continues to take away whatever they can. Employees are also on-call for about 15 weeks a year.
Pros
salary is very good
Cons
everything else

Nuclear Security Officer (Current Employee) –  Killona, LAJune 23, 2017
Being part of a bargaining unit it is hard to have managers on your side. Mangers promise things will get done but never will. Benefits such as tuition reimbursement and professional development course are offered to company but when we ask for it we can not go. If you ask a question that they dont know you will never get a answers. They will tell you they will get back to you, but wont.

CSOC IT Specialist SR (Current Employee) –  The Woodlands, TXJune 22, 2017
You are just thrown into your position and expected to learn 2 + years of information in 6 months. and if you don't learn it, you are chastised. Their mission and ideas are great, they just need to make sure every single person follows them.

Customer Contact Representative I (Former Employee) –  Jackson, MSJune 11, 2017
When the call volume is high you will constantly receive calls and when the call volume is low you will receive a break in between calls. There is a lot to learn about the job and you learn something new on a daily basis. Once you learn the job, you can do with easily. The pay should be based on the amount of skills you know and the minimum pay per hour should be $15.

Great work environment.
Operations Intern (Current Employee) –  Westlake, LAJune 7, 2017
Great job that consists of, in the most basic words, doing round sheets and inspecting equipment on a power generation unit. Also tagging equipment and mitigating any and all safety hazards in the workplace. Overseeing contractors and their activities on site was a task given at certain times. Studying and walking down all P&ID's and performing certain operations both on DCS and in the field was also part of the job. Also we worked with other organizations with our compliance to enter or exit certain locations on site.
Pros
Great people, great place

Maint. (Former Employee) –  Plymouth, MAMay 29, 2017
The work/life balance is skewed. The salary is above average, but expected to spend a large amount of time devoted to work. You generally work with a lot of hardworking and smart people.

Inappropriate business practices. Most older employees counting the days until they can retire at 55. Management disconnected from work that is important.

Goal oriented workplace with major focus on safety
FME Monitor (Former Employee) –  Oswego, NYMay 22, 2017
A typical day at work consisted of taking turns on and off duty within the plant. The company is very focused on employee and community safety, it always comes first. The management was typically very knowledgeable and easy to work for. The hardest part about the job was the shift work and the long weeks due to the outage.
Pros
Adequate break time
Cons
Shift work

Entergy
NPO (Current Employee) –  MichiganMay 9, 2017
I enjoyed working for Entergy for the past 10 years. They pay very well, but with the recent notification of closing their northern fleet of nuclear plants, it has been difficult to stomach. I understand why but just not happy with the decision. I will have to move most likely away from family and friends.
