Pros

This is a steady, secure job with a great salary and great benefits. If you want to advance and do a good job, you can. If you want to spend the rest of your job in the same position, you can do that too.

Cons

We have too few vacation days, many poor/underperforming employees cannot be easily removed from their posts. Lot of favoritism and nepotism impacting hiring and promotion decisions.

Advice to Management

Provide more feedback and lay off unproductive and underqualified employees. It is too dificult to fire someone, even a poor performer.

    Pros

    Really good experience, exposure, and opportunity for new hires.

    If you don't like the rain, sun, and snow, this job will not be for you. There will be office position 1-2 years down the line but they definitely put new guys in supervisor roles outdoors to experience what it's like.

    Cons

    Rain, sun, and snow. Not for the sensitive.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with the young culture out there, that a lot of companies are doing this "feel good vibe" among employees now and that's a good thing. Yes, it's a true a job needs to be done. But let's get rid of the ol' tight lips and manchismo of the salt of the earth union workers politics. We get enough of that from, you know, the literal earth we drill into.

    I worked at Con Edison full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ability to earn good money.

    Cons

    Still the good old boys company. A look of clicks and they don't like smart people with degrees that come from the outside. Very cut throat company and has a problem with smart women. No exposure to high levels projects if your smart.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on holding on to good talent, inside and those that come from the outside. Ensure employees want to work there and not feel threatened about their jobs. B a fair management team,
