    I have been working at Con Edison of New York full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Stability, Government sponsored monopoly, and good for lazy people

    Cons

    No proper guidance, many unqualified people holding positions and getting position due to favoritism. Makes people lazy. Erodes intelligence out of smart peoples. The culture is very bad. Employees who has been here before 2005 have way more benefit than people started after 2005.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look outside.. This management just think about fattening its wallet. Politics wont save on doomsday

    Pros

    Great people, stable company. You will have a job that has a high retention rate due to the fact that the company does lay people off. They will allow employees to retire and not fill the position rather that cut the workforce with layoffs.

    Cons

    If you work in management - added 5 more year before you retire, medical plan is expensive.
    If you work in the union - no pension anymore, medical has gone up, bit not as much as management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on training employees for different careers if they so desire.
    Allow employees to work at home if possible for certain positions.
