    I worked at Con Edison of New York as an intern for less than a 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.

    I have been working at Con Edison of New York full-time

    Pros

    If you get a job here, it's like winning the lotto. You will basically get paid to sit around and do nothing. Great place to work, it's like a club. Imagine just sitting at your desk and surfing the net 8 hours per day.

    Cons

    Its true, there is a big problem with folks putting their hands in the cookie jar ;) I ran into it my first month on the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    your doing a great job, change nothing!
