Specialist (Former Employee) –  4 Irving PlaceAugust 14, 2018
In all Con Edison is a great company to work for. They give so many incentives, such as tuition reimbursement. They have a facility dedicated to training their employees. Several departments within the company to aid their employees in personal and career manners. Unfortunately, like many other companies, they have a few managers who believe they own the company and treat their employees in an unfair manner with the protection of company policies. Energy Services has a corrupted manager who is known for creating hostile environments and eventually terminating the employee. Be careful of some departments, they have old school managers although the CEO promotes diversity and inclusion.
Pros
Salary, Benifits
Cons
Old school managers

Good first job/stepping stone for advancement
Junior Designer (Current Employee) –  Bronx, NYJuly 25, 2018
Getting a job through the Union gives job security and great benefits, with the ability to advance or move into management. The work isn't always exciting however, unless you really enjoy your position - it can be repetitive and boring at times, but you can move around every two years if you'd like and apply to new positions in the company.

Being a large company though, you run into some inefficiency since changes to procedures/work flow has to be approved and run through all the higher management levels, so it's an annoyingly long/complicated process to make seemingly simple changes.

It is a good company to start at to get some initial experience from a reputable energy company.
Pros
401K with company match, pension, stock program, health/vision/dental/life insurance, paid vacation and maternity/paternity leave
Cons
Work is repetitive/boring at times, company inefficiencies due to size

Claims Investigator/Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Brooklyn, NYJuly 19, 2018
Con Edisons management employees should stop micromanaging their staff and exhibit tactics that will bring more production, motivation and an overall better work environment. Also being that the facilities are not the cleanest working from home should be an option for staff members with respiratory issues.
Pros
Salary
Cons
No flexibility

Procurement Specialist (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 18, 2018
Con Edison is definitely a place where an individual can grow and make an impact if that is a goal. Although navigating politics is a must-have skill, the company isn't very bad and provides its employees with a fair work/life balance.
Pros
Flex Time, Work From Home, Discounts, Pension
Cons
Politics, insufficient processes, too many meetings

Productive and allowed you to help satisfy customers and build stronger network.
Field tech II (Team Lead) (AM-PM) (Former Employee) –  Bronx, NYJuly 12, 2018
A typical day at work depends on the environment, the weather, the place, and the customers being home or acknowledging what we are there to do at the work site. You learn to help consumers and educate them on energy efficiency. The work place is set up with a small crew along with a Team Lead(field tech II) who manages the crew and installations by crew who is there to survey and retrofit apartments in residential buildings based all over NYC. Because site change daily all over NYC, The hardest part of the job is getting to the work site using public transportation or other ways of travel. However, The best part of the job and most enjoyable part of it is satisfying customers and educating them on different things they can do to lower energy usage and be more energy efficient.

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Brooklyn, NYJuly 10, 2018
Customer service representatives are over the phone reps. The minute your shift starts you must be ready to get on those phones. most days is one call after the other and very few days you will have some down time of about one minute between every call. This job reaches almost every department in ConEd so you will learn a little about every department which is a good thing if you are looking to transfer to another position. over all it is a good job with a lot of opportunity to grow. its pretty much all up to you.

Great Place to work
Design Engineering Technical Coordinator (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 6, 2018
Affirmative action did not benefit everyone. The city is very diverse and that is the neighborhood electrically served. Being hired in the early 80's meant getting to the back of the promotion line because a weighted average is used in determining who should be promoted. Talent and hard work does not have to have the highest weight.
