    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!

    Large Company, you need to understand the structure to make any kind of impact. Change comes slow.

    Sick time policy could be better.

    Pros

    The overall benefit package is above average. Hours can be regular depending on what business organization you work for.

    Cons

    Preferential treatment is rampant. Once you have been blessed by one of the upper management people advancement is less on your technical knowledge and more of who you know.
