    Pros

    The benefits are good and the salary is competitive. The work life balance within the company is comparitive to no other company I know of. Managment is very thoruogh in communications and strive to develop your skills allowing you endless opportunities for advanacement if desired. Hard work and dedication are rewarded and the commrodary amongst employees is evident.

    Cons

    The work can be demanding and there is extreme criticism from media. The public opinion of the company is low but I believe this is based on little knowledge of how the electric utiltiy industry operates. With such a heavy population in the Metro NY area it is difficult an sometimes impossible to distribute the electricity as demanded.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the communication open and continue to recognize and reward achievements.

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

    Pros

    Con Edison is a great company in my eyes. They have both union workers, and management employees who all work together towards a common goal- providing the customer with steady/reliable service.

    Cons

    For the intern program, I feel that the interns could have been given more responsibilty. A lot was busy data / organizing work.

    "Summer Intern"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Con Edison (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Was able to gain a great deal of hands on experience and witness a lot of on-site action. Was also able to learn a great deal about how the company functions during the heat waves of summer.

    Cons

    There wasn't a great deal of structure or a clear-cut internship program set up. It was fairly disorganized and there was often times where there was no work to be done.

    Advice to Management

    Having a more structured internship program with direction and weekly meetings or check-ins could help future interns contribute more.
