    I have been working at Con Edison of New York full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits package for current employees. Flexible work schedule if you're in an office position. Job stability. Opportunity to work on the cutting edge of the energy industry.

    Cons

    Appears the company is trying to do away with the pension program. There aren't many bad things about working here, you have to make it work for you. If you expect things to be handed to you, this is not the place for you to be.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to lower level managers, they are your eyes and ears!

    Pros

    Most employees dont realize how good they really have it. You can go as far as you want ...just takes motivation...great company that takes care of you in so many ways

    Cons

    The employees that feel entitled and feel that just showing up is all they have to give the company..the drama they create for the people that show up to work

    Advice to Management

    Most of you that came from the field need to remember where you came from ....how you felt on the other side. What it took to take care of your families. You still have a lot of guys that enjoy working so please don't treat us the same as the guys that take advantage of you and the system
