    War on Women is waged at CED. Minorities don't fair well either. EEOC should be all over this place.

    I worked at Consolidated Electrical full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good mission statement that will have you drinking the cool-aid but lacks sincerity in its execution.

    Cons

    Company Values: Men are the only ones that can be in charge and have power. Women are daft, mild mannered creatures that should only be in support positions or if in a token position of power, shall be a sham and politically ostracized. If they have talent or value it should be exploited making sure to destroy the self-confidence of the person making the contribution so that they lack ambition and will not demand to be paid what they are worth.

    Both men and women can also be marginalized by being placed in an obscure location or made to travel extensively. Management finds this power quite satisfying. Since you will be out in the hinterlands or traveling all the time, you will be away from anyone in upper management at corporate thus reducing your face time.

    Office Culture: Good "ole boy to the max. New profit manager prospects are all mail, and Caucasian.
    You will see a division manager and a very few profit managers that are successful and women but you will learn that their divisions or locations were purchased not home grown. Company events are boy-based.

    Another tactic : women are marginalized and excluded from gaining a foothold at CED by being kept on contract rather than hired as full time employees.

    WARNING: if you take initiative, notice things or put forth suggestions, converse with people outside your department, or perform exceptionally well or stand your ground with your opinions, no matter how positively or with the company's best interest in mind, you will be fired or wish to be fired, particularly if you are female. ONLY work here if you are willing to be a drone for a time and seek something better as soon as you can.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please tell the producers of Mad Men about you, and you may have a sequel. Sad to see this is still the Modus Operandi in the current decade, let alone this century!

    Oh, and stop disparaging your wives and women. How amazing that you do this in the presence of women coworkers who feel as though they are watching a terrorist torture a friend but you have to smile and watch because it could be you next.

    Stop abusing your power and start using it for good.

    Stop the excuse that you are in a man's profession - even the NBA has realized that a women coach of a men's basketball team might work. Men do NOT make better managers because they are men.
