CUSTOMER FIELD REPRESENTATIVE (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – June 22, 2016
I am very sociable. The job is a great work out due to all walking. The hardest part of the is never knowing what to expect when entering the basements. The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with the customers. I've learned how important safety is to the job. The management team is ok.
Every time we work safe, we get a safety celebration.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – May 26, 2016
There is a large disparity between management and union workers. It is a company to grow in but it is very difficult to move onto another department. As a part-time worker, they are willing to work with you a bit on your schedule.

A typical day as an intern at the accounts payable department at Con Edison
Clerk (Internship) (Former Employee) – New York, NY – January 28, 2016
A typical day in the accounts payable department would start with opening mail, sorting and scanning invoices into system. By mid day invoices would be forwarded to the analysts in accordance with their account responsibility. A typical day would end with us interns storing the hard copies of the invoices in the archive room.
I learned hands on how accounts payable cycle works in a mid size corporate business.
The department supervisor and manager were both very informative and helpful. They were always available to answer any questions or inquires we interns had.
There was nothing hard about the job. Every day interaction with accounting professionals was encouraging for us interns to finish our degrees soon and work for such a company full time.
Good mentors, very professional and polite workers.
Engineering Aide (Co-op) (Current Employee) – Bronx, NY – January 25, 2016
Working for Con Edison was the greatest internship I could have imagined. The huge variety of departments allowed me to work with so many different kinds of people. The networking options were incredible. Having the option to go through all the steps in different projects allowed me to experience all the important parts that are played by different groups. The work environment was always so engaging, and everyone is very familiar with interns so they welcome any questions and inqueries. The only reason why I didn't want to work for them full time is because, they don't have work in my area of study. They are more of an electrical engineering company, and don't really have the kind of constriction that I'm looking for. other wise, they are a great company. A typical day at work includes, a lot of spreadsheet work, conference calls for project updates, talk with coworkers about questions or steps that must be taken from updates on the call. The hardest part of my job are doing tedious tasks that take absolutely no brain power, but they are vital parts of some projects. The most enjoyable part is when you've done all the research for a product that you know can help your department both economically and work efficiently, and then it actually gets done.

Senior Electrical Engineer (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 28, 2015
This company needs to start from the top down. Get rid of the Board of Directors, followed by the CEO, Senior Vice Presidents and Vice Presidents. Then, build the company by putting people in those positions that have morals and ethics.
Don't work for Central Engineering. You're better off working at McDonalds.
The Ombudsman, EEO, and Labor Relations exist at Con Edison just to make themselves look good. These people are a waste of life. They don't fight for what's right.
low salary, lousy benefits, favoritism and nepotism
