    I have been working at Con Edison of New York full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's a union job and the are great opportunities to move to so many departments. There's a lot of room to grow in this company. Everyone is always willing to lend a helping hand. I've never received a "I can't be bothered attitude from anyone here." Unless a serious infraction occurs, the company losses people due to attrition. People simply stay till they retire.

    Cons

    The schedules tend to change based on the needs of the business. At times overtime may be mandated. To some it's inconvenient. Policy and procedure change so quickly and so often, some find it hard to keep up. But most just find it really annoying but manageable. Heaven forbid your late or have to call out. Pretty strict on that one. I think electricity being a vital service, it's warranted. Ever been without power???

    Advice to Management

    Provide better metrics on the ever changing flow of data and keep the info updated on the Intranet as soon as a change happens.
