Good company with minimal advancement opportunities
Senior Project Manager, Capital Projects (Current Employee) – The Woodlands, TX – February 14, 2019
This is a good company if you want to get buried in an office or travel back and forth from New Orleans to Houston, but not real concerned with advancing your career. The management will say they are open and trusting, but it is the opposite. Everything you say that challenges their opinion will be held against you . Many are petty and appear to hold grudges against employees. I have not experienced this first had, but I have seen it done to others. Career advance is only for a select few that fit into the Entergy Management character style. Soft spoken, risk-adverse, passive aggressive.
Senior I&C Design Engineer (Current Employee) – Port Gibson, MS – February 7, 2019
Majority of supervisors change often and provide little oversight or guidance. Unable to advance because there were few qualified and competent engineers in the organization - therefore I was stuck as the only qualified engineer.
Electrical Design/Procurement Engineer (Former Employee) – Port Gibson, MS – January 29, 2019
Served as an Electrical Engineer for 3 years. The hours are full of opportunity to learn about Nuclear protocol activities. The plant is in a remote location which is good for overall safety to the community.
Contractor (Current Employee) – West Monroe, LA – January 21, 2019
I absolutely love working at Entergy, I love the company, I love the people & I would love to work at Entergy full time. No positions have opened up in West Monroe that I am qualified for, so I will keep watching...
Sr. Project Manager/Scrum Master (Current Employee) – New Orleans, LA – December 15, 2018
Entergy is in the midst of significant changes as it works to adapt to the changing energy environment. There are lots of opportunities for new employees to come in and make a big difference. The company is making significant investments across the utility and continues to be one of the best community partners in the country. There is considerable turnover in culture and work going on at this time and upward mobility should be open for curious and hard working professionals. We have a commitment to diversity and I appreciate the opportunity to work with such a varied and talented workforce.
Job Security, Upward Mobility, Dynamic Environment, Lots of opportunity
Lots of work, sometimes underfunded initiatives, significant changes in flight
Analyst (Current Employee) – New Orleans, LA – December 13, 2018
I have had 6 managers and 5 directors in the past 10 years. Entergy lacks stability in leadership, change management, and in a proactive approach to obvious and critical challenges such as software integration and compatibility that is not based on the cheapest vendor..
Large company where career movement is possible.
Lack of career development, role clarity, and transparency.
Limited opportunities for advancement for some demographic groups
Sr. Staff Analyst (Former Employee) – Pine Bluff, AR – December 11, 2018
Typical day at work - two meetings, routine work. What I learned - I learned a lot about the electric industry. Management - out of touch with impact of policies on employees. Workplace culture - inconsistent. Hardest part of the job - making a difference. Most enjoyable part of the job - compensation and benefits.
SECURITY OFFICER (Former Employee) – Covert, MI – December 3, 2018
Loved my job at Entergy. Management is very poor. Work was good and the pay was more than fair. I never intended on leaving my job, but due to a manager dislike for me on a personal level, I was unable to keep my job.
