    I have been working at Con Edison of New York full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Job stability is number one here. Benefits are decent but have become very expensive over time (for both management and union). Career growth is possible with some motivation, some luck and a LOT of connections.

    Cons

    Very very old fashioned, feels like a time warp to the 1960s. Culture and values completely out of touch with reality and their employees needs. Very inflexible should personal issues come up.Technologically behind on the times, making day to day work frustrating.Depending on the department, staff can be very unmotivated, making for a very unproductive work force.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage and respect your peers.

    Pros

    Hours are flexible. Great location but shouldnt' be a reason to stay.

    Cons

    If you're a contractor or consultant, leave within a year. Dont think twice of staying longer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat contractors like employees. Everyone is a person. Deserves the same respect.

    Laid back culture... You will enjoy working here if you don't want to take challenge and love sleeping at job

    Cons

    In the long run, you will lose value and won't be able to compete in outside world

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hey management, you should try to develop people within the company and promote them instead of bringing someone from outside to fill a senior level position

    Pros

    Stability, Government sponsored monopoly, and good for lazy people

    Cons

    No proper guidance, many unqualified people holding positions and getting position due to favoritism. Makes people lazy. Erodes intelligence out of smart peoples. The culture is very bad. Employees who has been here before 2005 have way more benefit than people started after 2005.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look outside.. This management just think about fattening its wallet. Politics wont save on doomsday
