    I have been working at Con Edison of New York full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Stable job. Good benefits for union. Pay is good.

    Cons

    The company is stuck in time. Too little time off. Need more work-life balance. Union members are treated like kindergarten kids with little decent or respect by Managers. Very puntative union culture. Not much room for growth. Lots of unprofessional people who work here making it harder than it needs be for others. Backstabbing and bitter culture.

    Advice to Management

    Company would work better if Union-Managenent had better relations. Employees could be treated better. Promotions involve a lot of nepotism or kissing up. Fairness is a joke. Interviews are rigged.. that should change. Qualifications for management jobs are too hire currently. Develop the talent you have within the company.. rather than hire more skilled outsiders that will eventually leave for greener pastures. Young workers will get tired of ill treatment and slow movement.
