Nepotism and Cronyism Rampant

Programmer (Former Employee) New York, NY

ProsDecent place to learn about new technology.

ConsVery few new employees stay with the company for any extended period of time. Managers and supervisors have made rank by who they know not what they know. Basically, most management/supervisory staff have been with the company for many years and are very territorial and concerned only with nurturing the careers of staff members within their inner circle. If you are within their inner circle expect GREAT performance reviews and pay raises year in and year out regardless of their true on the job performance. And expect mediocre (at best) performance reviews and pay raises if you are not within their inner circle. This culture/mindset was cited internally by the company which to it's credit recognizes the rampant nepotism and cronyism that abounds...Unfortunately, despite the company's best efforts to promote fairness and opportunity to advance for all in the workplace, managers and supervisors find ways to portray staff not within their inner circle as being under performing slackers, which leads to mistrust and staff concerned only with self preservation. Inhibiting new ideas and thinking outside the box. It's unhealthy for staff subjected to this and it's unhealthy for a company desperately seeking to extracate itself from the grasp of rampant nepotism and cronyism.

Advice to Senior ManagementOnly through retirement of long term employees will the company begin to realize a work force that genuinely cares about the company, promotes free thinking and provides fairness and opportunity for all staff members.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    I worked at Con Edison full-time for more than a year


    Pros: Good salary if you negotiate well coming into the company… Cons: Many of the management employees were promoted from the union. Intimidated by outside hires coming into management. Not a corporate structure, they have… Advice to Senior Management: Utilize the experience and talent of outside management employees. … No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
