Corporate Advertising Manager, Public Affairs (Current Employee) – New York, NY – October 2, 2017
Con Edison Company of New York fosters an environment of professionalism, collaboration and innovation. Diversity and work-life balance are a key priority to the company which is demonstrated by it's commitment to providing employees with the most comprehensive benefit package in the industry.
The toughest part of the job is the bureaucracy involved in day-to-day processes can be a bit slow. Also, my career trajectory is limited because there is now room for growth within the current organization.
Most enjoyable is working among a team of talented and innovative professionals who are passionate about leading the company into the next century.
Commercial Service Representative (Former Employee) – New York, NY – August 29, 2017
I worked for Con Edison in NY, The company changed to a cut-throat operation. You are especially targeted if you are in the union. Employees with more than 20 years are especially targeted for termination since those employees almost have a full pension. The union is weak and has limited resources to defend you. The job gives good pay and benefits if you can hold on to it. If working for this company it is better to go for a Management position since you at least get can get a bonus for hard work.
Not stressful, busy and we can have a radio at our desks.
Gas Operations-Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – New York, NY – May 25, 2017
A typical day would consist of entering fuse sheets that has errors on them and I would have to get in contact with the inspectors or supervisors to get the correct information. Then it turns out smoothly...sometimes.
I have learned my job very well by paying attention to my surroundings, getting to know the people I interact with and asking questions. I know a lot about Gas Operations,the purpose of different pipe sizes and the different pipe materials that have to go into the ground, why pipes have to be changed. I have learned different programs that will help me in the future.Patience...
Management are a pretty swell group of people. I have a great relationship with my manager. There really isn't a hard part of the job because you learn as you go and become accustomed to the work. One thing is when a worker repeats the same errors on the sheets I have to work from.
I really enjoy when a worker actually paid attention to their previous mistakes by not repeating the same mistakes. I will call and tell them they have done a wonderful job and that makes them happy! Emailing and calling workers on a daily basis has gotten to become a relaxed communicational spirit between us. I enjoy it...but I am working at Con Edison through a contract and do not know when that will expire. I am seeking a Full-time position.
Analyst (Former Employee) – New York, NY – April 28, 2017
Management employees are careful with Union employees. Union employees feel that they should have equity in outcome. Within management, it is bureaucratic but there are a number of capable and intelligent people to work with. Within Union there are also people who are intelligent and work hard. However, the culture is just a bit odd.
Rewarding place to work with many promotional opportunities.
Senior Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Bronx, Brooklyn, and Westchester NY – March 15, 2017
I started in construction and worked my way to the highest Customer Service title available. It was a remarkable experience and I enjoyed every day that I worked for Con Edison. I retired after working for them 36 years at the age of 55. You could not find a better place to work for safety and professionalism.
Analyst Aide Internship (Former Employee) – New York, NY – February 16, 2017
It's a workplace that seems like everything has been done the same way for decades. Software that is used is outdated, but if it's not broken, there's no need to fix it. Everything is still handled as paperwork, so there's a lot of redundant work that seems unnecessary. Expect to see crates filled with payment information that no one is going to look at until some minor dispute comes up with a contractor over pipe installation work that was done ten years ago.
relaxed work environment for most of the time until things get heated at various points, (mostly dependent on when the manager gets grilled by his manager), people seem to take long lunches
repetitive, there really needs to be a revision in the workflow
Senior Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – January 20, 2017
A typical day at Con Ed is always a productive one, due to it demand from all of the five boroughs of New York. I've learned so much, especially about problem resolution with a smile. As for the management, the focus is on making the customers happy with diligent productivity. The hardest part about the job was sometimes being overwhelmed with work, but it was also a positive thing as well by making the day go by fast. The most enjoyable part of the day was the family built by great teamwork.
