Poor management and processes
Worked here for a little over a year and found it to be one of the most challenging environments in my 20+ year career. Disorganized chaos best describes the workplace. Management seems to run around in circles jumping from one fire to another throwing a small bucket of water on each just to keep it under control. There was very little training or tolerance to learn the job.

Management and Work Culture Issues
Pros - potential to make great money; great benefits. Great work-life balance.

Cons - Bad on-boarding process. You’re really on your own once you’re hired unless you can find a great co-worker to train you. I have a great background and experience is this field and there’s not much that I have not been exposed to, but I had to figure out their system and conclude on my own determination and background to figure out just exactly how some of their antiquated systems work because no one trained me on it. Their training is “ask your co-worker”. And if you get a co-worker that does not help you, then you’re on your own. Horrible management especially in CCG (central contracting group); very clickish and only believe in helping those they prefer to help. A lot of favoritism and unqualified people in place as managers, which creates a horrible working culture. Management is very poor, they have a culture of leading by intimidation which brings a low morale with employees. They typically look for someone to blame and do not try to understand what factors led to an event.


There are a lot of process issues. They’re always creating processes and changing them, but struggle in enforcing them. Internal folks who have to work with supply chain hate working with supply chain for this reason. They are very unprofessional. They do not like following supply chain processes. Part of the problem is because they do not understand the processes because their manager does not know it and it was never correctly communicated out for them to know it. Then to top it off your working out of

I have had a successful career while being with Entergy at their Waterford 3 Steam Electric Station nuclear power station. The biggest plus is the family of great people that work there.

Fun and Fast Paced
Working for Entergy is really fun if you enjoy an ever changing job. No day is like the other and there's tons of variety in what you do. The only downside is that management seems to frequently change what the priority work is and funding for projects is always changing. If you're capable of working well in a high stress environment, this is a pleasant job.
Pros
friendly coworkers, variety in job scope, good benefits, easy to move around
Cons
high stress

Very Stressful Work Culture.
Working for this company is very stressful with a very disorganized PMO space. There is a very low level of productivity because works are not given the right room to work.

Very biased and not a good place to work as contractor
Management is very biased, too much of blame job and we were kept in dark on what is going on. No feedback given on your work nor proper directions is provided. Very adhoc, no proper planning. Workforce retention is very low.

Horrible
Whatever you do, don't work for this company. The home/work balance is horrendous with mandatory overtime always happening. Management will throw you under the bus the first chance they get and corporate does nothing to fix any of the issues. The only thing this company cares about is what their stock holders opinions are and where they can cut corners to make more money. Safety is a joke and the only rewards you get for all your hard work are pizza parties and more overtime. Avoid at all costs.

Incomplete Operational System
Blame employees for management and Operational errors. Promoted a false culture. Did not treat co-workers fairly. Half the staff in one department quit in a single month. Not worth the headache or pay.

Extremely challenging environment
There is no structure to a workday, each day is a different world. The typical day is full of meetings not allowing for any hands on productive time.

I have many years in the field, so there isn't too much from a power process standpoint I have not been exposed to; however, two years later I am still trying to learn their accounting, purchasing, work tracking systems all which are antiquated.


Management is very poor, they have a culture of leading by intimidation. They typically look for someone to blame and do not try to understand what factors led to an event. Management does not ask the question how did I contribute to the event and try to better understand how to prevent future events. Management sets what they call OEI (Operational Excellence) goals that are directly tied to an incentive program, based on the success of the facility there is a potential to get up to 200% of the incentive plan; however, they do not fund the program to pay out the maximum incentive; therefore, they come up at the end of the year and adjust the incentives to fit the budget. The company also sets expectations of a certain percentage of the staff to fall in different categories of the evaluation process. i.e. needs improvement, meets some expectations, meets expectations, exceeds expectations. Management will go back and adjust evaluations to meet the corporate expectations.


The company has a very old culture that is not willing to listen to new ideas, the standard answer is "this is the way we have done it for 30 years". Entergy has a nuclear fleet and much of the management
