    I have been working at Con Edison part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Medical, Dental, 401k, no sick time,

    Cons

    No tuition reimbursement, no stock plan, terrible work hours, unorganized department, Incompetent management

    Advice to Management

    Employees are disengaged and retention is low due to hiring measures. Paying people for 25 hours in nyc is unrealistic. Hire more people for full time instead of hiring a number of part timers.Everyone gets 40 hours a week during training for 15 weeks. After you are dropped to 25 hours a week at the latest shift 430-11pm. In order to get full time a position has to be open and that goes based on seniority. Sometimes you can be part time friends or 3 years before getting a full time offer. Plus, to apply for another position the process is a hassle. You have get approval from a person two levels hire like a Sr. specialist if you've been with the company less than two years. For union jobs, your only allowed to apply for up to 2 a year. Policies like that is a why employee engagement and retention is so terrible. Also. The company has terrible work/life balance. No sick time because they do everything through fmla but to be eligible you must have worked at least 1250 hours which is difficult to reach when your hours are so minimal. Managers are unhelpful and are more preoccupied with entertaining each other than helping you. They are more concerned with their own personal problems and think the answer to every question is on the company intranet. In all honesty it is really not a pleasant place to work. Company is very unwilling to bend especially if you have kids. Expect to have no social or home life having this job.

    I have been working at Con Edison part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great company to work for if you have no education and the persistence of a mule and don't mind taking crap from management who also have no education and the persistence of a mule.

    Cons

    Management isn't very intelligent, rampant nepotism, people who think they are superior humans because of the rampant nepotism, everything is timed (LITERALLY everything even bathroom breaks), smart educated folks most likely won't stay very long.
