    The training for this company was the best training I have ever gotten from any job, it is extensive in depth and very helpful. The company has so many opportunities for advancement and growth, the benefits are great, most managers and co workers are friendly and helpful.

    It is challenging work since the call center is very busy, and the pressure of meeting company standards is high, but it is doable.

    Pros

    Longevity (which translates to loyalty) to envy. Opportunity, office culture - gentile and generational. You can't get on an elevator without acknowledging your colleagues - how great is that? Work life balance - depends on your department, but to be envied.

    Cons

    understanding the utility industry and its relationship to oversight organizations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue on the road to work life balance - be forward thinking. Continue to listen and understand what your staff are looking for to produce great results for the company.

    I worked at Con Edison of New York as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I worked here as an intern- the compensation was great as a high school. Many engineering supervisors will provide you with the tools to do well, but you need to be self-motivated if you want to succeed. The compensation is great- well above many other places where engineers can work in NYC.

    Cons

    Sometimes the hours can be long- but the workplace environment compensates for that.
