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

Pros

This is a great company to work for it has good benefits and you can learn a lot. The ability to advance is also pretty good.

Cons

The company is changing the benefits are being chopped up at every union contract renewal. The checks and balances between management and employees when there is a problem is not effective.

Advice to Management

The managers should be held more responsible for employees progress because if the relationship is challenged then the employee will always be treated unfairly. The manager needs to be held accountable for poor leadership.

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

    Pros

    Steady work, hourly wage (OT was defined), learning an electrical trade is pretty cool and useful, VERY difficult to get fired.

    Cons

    The Union rules and mindset made it difficult to distinguish yourself; good work wasn't necessarily rewarded. Very PC, affirmative action heavy

    Advice to Management

    Don't hassle people who know what they're doing; discipline bad apples when necessary instead of letting it fester and then cracking down on everyone in a general sense.
