Sr. Staff Analyst (Former Employee) – New Orleans, LA – November 11, 2018
To many friends and family working for friends and family. Not a company who encouraged thinking out of the box. The company had a group of managers who felt that they had all of the answers. However they never worked for another company and relied on consultants. You were only allowed to think outside of the box if you were white.This cause the company to implement change that didn't work. Examples are financial operation system and company financial structure. Major delays becasue internal implementation team members didn't have shills and knowledge to execute deliverables.
Hot a lot of opportunities for minorities (brown people).

Entergy is a good place to work but you need to understand what it means to work for a regulated utility company. The company is more likely to take a conservative approach preferring proven technologies to the latest innovations. IT is still viewed as an expense rather than an asset. At the end of the day, Entergy sells energy not technology.

Sales Specialist (Current Employee) – Little Rock – September 14, 2018
I’ve been working here for about a year and a half and I absolutely love it. I make a very good salary for my age. The environment is laid back but professional. The managers aren’t micro managing but they are always there when you need them. We have great events such as potlucks, catered breakfast and lunch , paid trips, and just an overall good vibe. You are able to express concerns without judgment and they are constantly pushing for career advancement. The quarterly incentives are nice as well as our yearly bonus! Can see myself here for a long time. Thanks Entergy!
Lunch, breakfast, gifts, Pto, birthday and anniversary off, relax environment, great pay
Very demanding job with long-time employment security
Design Engineer, Electrical (Former Employee) – Russellville, AR – August 17, 2018
My work schedule depended on whether or not we were in a refueling outage or not, which happened once every 18 months for either unit. (This meant that every three years there would be two outages that year instead of the usual one.)
When not, I spent a lot of my time addressing small workload items including document updates, modification reviews, and as-needed assistance required by other departments. I didn't spend as much time on my own modification development as expected for a design engineer, due to the large amount of work contracted out to other engineering companies. As such, part of my engineering workload was also contract management. Meetings also took up a fair portion of my work week.
During an outage, which typically lasted between 1-2 months, my daily hours increased and I often had to work night shifts in support of the outage. If any emergencies or unexpected developments occurred, design engineering was often required to assist, even when the situation required little if any input from engineering. A couple of times I was required to suit up and actually enter the reactor to support my own projects or simply assist in the outage closeout.
Due to the situation at the plant, work was often stressful with many time crunches, and the level of work prioritization by management often differed between verbal commands and the administrative and policy requirements of the company, creating some friction in terms of which tasks were truly the highest priority. Additionally, I found I was completing more administrative and management tasks than engineeringmore... tasks as time passed. Being on call 24 hours a day was an adjustment as well.
I learned a lot about how power systems and generating plants operate, as well as the management structure of a larger company. The workplace culture was fairly strong among equal level employees, although there was a fair amount of turnover in my few years at the plant as the older well-established engineers retired and younger hires were made. This complicated the above issues as a lot of in-house experience left when the older engineers retired.
The compensation and employment perks were the best part of the job, though even then, engineering tended to get the shorter end of the stick compared to other departments who earned a larger percentage of overtime pay during outages and otherwise.less
Business Development (Current Employee) – Lake Charles, LA – August 11, 2018
Entergy is a great company to work for. There are employees that have been around for 30+ years. Entergy is very slow at modernazation and keeping up with the changing environment. Entergy is regulated by the Louisiana Public Service Commission, so any changes in business has to be approved by the PSC. Being a regulated company makes it difficult to keep up with a changing market.
