      Pros

      Con Edison is a very good company. They were one of the first to protect their employees from this terrible pandemic and allow remote work. They have always been very flexible and easy to work for. Definitely a company of the future. You learn a lot and grow too. No micromanagement, everyone trusts you to do your job and are very easy to talk to. They do hire very good people. Very inclusive, everyone from every background works there it’s nice because we share different ideas based on our experiences. Our leadership and management team are top notch.

      Cons

      None the hiring process is long but I understand why they need it properly vet people.
