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

Pros

Great people, stable company. You will have a job that has a high retention rate due to the fact that the company does lay people off. They will allow employees to retire and not fill the position rather that cut the workforce with layoffs.

Cons

If you work in management - added 5 more year before you retire, medical plan is expensive.
If you work in the union - no pension anymore, medical has gone up, bit not as much as management.

Advice to Management

Focus on training employees for different careers if they so desire.
Allow employees to work at home if possible for certain positions.

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

    Pros

    Stability, Government sponsored monopoly, and good for lazy people

    Cons

    No proper guidance, many unqualified people holding positions and getting position due to favoritism. Makes people lazy. Erodes intelligence out of smart peoples. The culture is very bad. Employees who has been here before 2005 have way more benefit than people started after 2005.

    Advice to Management

    Look outside.. This management just think about fattening its wallet. Politics wont save on doomsday

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

    Pros

    Excellent job and financial security, benefits; teamwork is highly promoted, challenging work assignments, freedom and independence to use own methods/techniques for accomplishing results; company focuses on identifying and promoting high potential employees; diversity is promoted; exceptionally good people; incredible focus on managing costs/expenditures to ensure customers are satisfied with their rates and to ensure a return to investors quarter to quarter, year after year. The company is managed very well financially, good operations, maintenance and service!

    Cons

    Some people are working in positions (like any other place) where their education, training and experience is not appropriate to the jobs they are doing, but this is very rare. Difficult to really focus on the cons.

    Advice to Management

    Need to focus more on leading not only with passion, but with compassion. Focus more on communicating and being heard - inspiring with vision and strategy; challenging employees with high standards that are modeled; engage employees more informally (personally) and more frequently; listen and respond to employees needs.
