The best in the industry, but you better get use to the culture.

Current Employee - Operating Supervisor  in  New York, NY
Current Employee - Operating Supervisor in New York, NY

Pros

The pay is fair for the industry, but living costs are high in New York. If you like underground electric distribution, there's no where else in the world where you'll learn more. You get to help run the city and it's very satisfying after a hard days work.

Cons

Very structured and bureaucratically run. Sometimes, nepotism is rampant. The time requirments at the job can be very straining on your personal life, if you work in an operations department especially during certain periods of the year.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Change is good when it comes to modernization and safety. But too much change all at once just turns people away from it in large groups and can be counter productive

    Pros

    This is a steady, secure job with a great salary and great benefits. If you want to advance and do a good job, you can. If you want to spend the rest of your job in the same position, you can do that too.

    Cons

    We have too few vacation days, many poor/underperforming employees cannot be easily removed from their posts. Lot of favoritism and nepotism impacting hiring and promotion decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more feedback and lay off unproductive and underqualified employees. It is too dificult to fire someone, even a poor performer.
