    Advice to Management

    After 32 years of dedicated service, I have seen the company go from good to bad. They are fooling the public by saying they are " ON IT". They are not, they have created an atmosphere of cronyism and nepotism for key positions in the company that claims equal opportunity for all. They have put in place managers and general managers in charge of Gas, Electric that are unqualified to make the tough decisions needed in this industry and that is because they lack the knowledge in these very same areas. The positions are dictated by what has become friends of the top industry. These managers in charge depend heavily on first line supervisors with 30 plus years in service to guide them through the storm and return their gratitude by not giving advancement opportunities to the experienced personnel because they are afraid of losing their meal ticket and afraid they will be exposed for the phonies that they are! Listen to me clearly, as the baby boomers that have retired and are about to do so soon, you will see more and more incidents of gas explosions and electrical unpreparedness as you have seen recently during storm events, that's because they have hired unqualified contractors that are trained for a week at the Con Edison learning center and then put in the field, this is a formula for disasters yet to come. The PSC is constantly on their case because of these very same reasons, the NTSB found unqualified fusing of gas pipes by contractors resulting in many deaths in the Park Avenue incident , the current Governor of our state is fed up with Con Edison as are many law makers.
