    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.
