Utility Spot Holder (Former Employee) –  Brooklyn, NYNovember 21, 2017
Majority of the position consisted of the employee overseeing construction sites.

Long hours of redirecting traffic were also involved in this position.

The use of a personal vehicle was required as the position entailed an employee maneuvering to different locations.

Good opportunity
Administrative Test Proctor (Current Employee) –  Queens, NYJuly 19, 2017
Working for con Ed has been a pretty good opportunity in the fact that it's a a company that carries weight and it's advanced my salary all while giving me experience but as a temp, it's scary to see coworkers sacked due to budget or dwindling examinee registration. There's virtually little training needed for this job but the training provided is quite bad. The scariest thing however, is the possibility to be let go on the spot, same day.
Pros
Good experience
Cons
Not much to learn and potential for immediate lay off.

Interesting place to work
Associate Counsel (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJune 19, 2017
The Company is trying to improve its employee culture. For example, they have expanded vacation carry-over to 10 days and you have the entire year to take it. This is an improvement from the "you must take all your vacation" attitude.
Pros
New work from home policy for law department personnel

Two thumbs up
Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMay 20, 2017
Typical work day is fast-paced and you're juggling competing priorities in a matrix environment. There is plenty of room for growth if you work towards that. The majority of management is a pleasure to work with but there are always exceptions no matter where you work. Very senior leadership lives and promotes a culture of transparency, inclusiveness, teamwork, celebrating success, and respect for all which unfortunately does not trickle down to all departments. Workplace culture depends on the department and departmental tone at the top. The most enjoyable part of the job is that you get to meet some genuinely good, hardworking people who are kind, supportive, and want you to be successful in your endeavors.

This is a hard company to leave. Most people who join this company retire from it. Managers expect you to work and are professional. It is also a union protected work environment.
