Suggestions for improvement

  • The Company has many Corporate Policy's and metrics that result in a lot of time for Supervision to maiuntain, this reduces time actually performing functions in the field which would be more beneficial.

What I like about the company

Overall Company supports a diverse work force. Opportunities exist within the company for people looking to move up. The toughest situation is the closure of many Nuclear sites in the North east, This has resulted in many employees retiring earlier then expected, finding other employment or moving South where the company has Nuclear Sites that remain open due to the fact they are regulated and the economics of maintain the plants in sound. Overall Entergy is good Employer , but current Jib opportunities in The Nuclear Northeast are going away.

What I dislike about the company

The Company had promised that persons would have longer employment in the North East at Nuclear Sites, but those opportunities have changes and the length of those jobs was reduced.

Company Culture

Very hectic, unstable pay policy

Teamwork

CSR Teams work together

Office / Work Environment

They give seconds to put up several programs with limited servers, penalized for opening up seconds earlier or later than start time, resulting in pay for 2wk people to lower.
Equity point system keeps you frantic, as a delay due to servers often happens. Very difficult to pay daily expenses when pay suddenly is reduced for reasons outside your control.

Work-Life Balance

Mandatory overtime is inconvenient, as well as being sent home early.

Company Image

Joked about as the Plantation. Causes one to constantly count seconds due to penalty payment and sliding pay .

What I dislike about the company

They penalize you if you put your programs up 2 minutes before start time, saying a customer may call yet don't give enough time to find servers for 5 programs that are mandatory to Begin work. Then the work that you've done and rated as top pay for those two weeks, it's suddenly reduced buy $2 an hour. Very unreliable.

Company Culture

Non existent

Support from management

Very little if none

Teamwork

As a manager I instilled team work

Freedom to work independently

Not really, conflicting goals at all times

Internal Communication

Very poor guidance from either of the two companies

Gender Equality

I had six high technical females in a team of 40 people including 2 PHDs

Attitude towards older colleagues

Always outmost respect for others

Career Development

No real path to self improvement due to lack of time

Overall compensation for your work

Compensation was ok for the region

Office / Work Environment

Not supported by HCL management, terrible work conditions

Environmental Friendliness

This is an individual and personal goal

Work-Life Balance

Too many unfinished projects, no time for personal life

Company Image

The apparent image is of a great place to work at but....

Job Security

The team was constantly betrayed by higher management and replacing valuable employees not matter their skill levels (terrible Company to work for!!)

Handicapped Accessibility

There were handicap areas for special need workers

Workplace Safety

Never felt a shortcoming in this area, felt physical security was ok

Challenging Work

This is a high mark since there were highly technical issues going on all the time

Inclusive / Diverse

I guess I rate this at 2 stars for diversity and inclusiveness

Suggestions for improvement

  • Terminate all bad HCL managers, including the IT Director, the Service Delivery Manager, Cross functional manager, Security tower manager, and others
  • HCL would do fine if they knew how to retain good technical staff and not betray and cut throat everyone

What I like about the company

Entergy is probably a good company, but not the combination with HCL is a disaster!, do not recommend it to anyone!!!

What I dislike about the company

Neither company was fair in any of its professional dealings, especially the backstabbing by HCL upper management!!!

Support from management

So very very poor. Management and Union alike have promoted the worst people into leadership roles who can not even get out of a wet paper bag.

Gender Equality

They hire the numbers of each race but they also allow for sad people who take advantage of their roles and authority.

Attitude towards older colleagues

They are waiting for their payoff or how little they can do prior to when the plant shuts down or they retire.

Career Development

None

Environmental Friendliness

Union uses an old contract to be worthless and senior management allows this with out taking a stand because they are sad.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Leadership from the top down. Stop catering to the babies in the union and support management and tell HR to get real.

What I like about the company

Nothing glad I left

What I dislike about the company

Empty promises

Company Culture

In general both union and mangement are a bunch of over paid babies who feel they are intitled to everything. Completely complacent.

Support from management

Management support is weak. No support for new blood. Senior Management is doing just enough to ride out until they retire. No passage of knowledge.

Teamwork

The idea of team work has been murdered by the union and the management has lost its soul to do the right thing because the union knows too well how to play the game and use the system only to waste time, effort and manpower.

Internal Communication

What communication. HR, Ethics Hotline. What are they really doing. Not much.

Office / Work Environment

Ok conditions but the personnel are sad.

Environmental Friendliness

Not at all.

Work-Life Balance

Not a reality.

Challenging Work

Can be challenging but so much procedure and BS to deal with.

Inclusive / Diverse

Sure.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Re think the mind set and enforce the rules for all and do not stand for negative behavior by anyone.

What I like about the company

Nothing. A complete waste of time and effort

What I dislike about the company

The union is stuck in 1985 and the senior managers are week.
