    I have been working at Con Edison full-time

    Pros

    Large company with decent benefits and pay. There are a lot of positions within the company and mobility is easier at the lower ranks.

    Cons

    Some inefficiencies exist with some older departments. Management structure doesn't always make sense. They also rotate executives far too frequently.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a fair equity system of pat based on experience and qualifications. Also, redesign the interview process to be able to showcase intelligence of candidates, not rehearsing abilities.

    There is a General level of discontent among employees of why few people in the company receive special treatment. There is red tape on decisions with minimal appetite for risk.

    Pros

    The pay is fair for the industry, but living costs are high in New York. If you like underground electric distribution, there's no where else in the world where you'll learn more. You get to help run the city and it's very satisfying after a hard days work.

    Cons

    Very structured and bureaucratically run. Sometimes, nepotism is rampant. The time requirments at the job can be very straining on your personal life, if you work in an operations department especially during certain periods of the year.

    Advice to Management

    Change is good when it comes to modernization and safety. But too much change all at once just turns people away from it in large groups and can be counter productive
