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

    Pros

    Depending on the department and manager, it could be a really great place to work. There is opportunity for growth and movement if you are smart and prove your worth (however it doesn't always come with pay increases, etc.)

    Cons

    Depending on the department, you can be working long hours and emergency time frequently. You have to decide what is best for you. Compensation is what is, since this is a regulated company at the end of the day.

    Advice to Management

    Diversity and inclusive environment is great to look towards but these things will also follow with work/life balance continues to be a focus.

    Pros

    Overtime and pay rate. Learning the utility (gas/electric). Great union co-workers

    Cons

    The big myth is that you can move around when you get in to the company. This is untrue. Promotions are given to inexperienced people whom management likes. The company would rather hire off the street than promote within, regardless of their knowledge.

    Advice to Management

    Stay true to your values and promote qualified and willing employees.
