    I worked at Con Edison full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Con Edison has been in business for many years and has a stable hold on the market of providing service in the energy world. They have very clear and understandable corporate hierarchy. There are clear and precise systems in place for who you need to contact for any service within the company.

    Cons

    As I was working on assignment through an agency, it is difficult to judge compensation but they were providing wage offer to my agency on the low-end. From my observation of other workers they seem to have a good work-life balance but some people seem a little unhappy with having so many additional work roles on top of their already heavy work load.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should be willing to review the dynamics of their departments and hire where help is needed in their respective departments. Also, they should learn to manage their departments without so many meetings for every single issue that comes up. They overload schedules with too many meetings which has to take away from completing daily tasks.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 months - interviewed at Con Edison.

    Interview Details

    The interview process took about 5 months in total. I applied online and was contacted by email that the company was interested in me. The first step is to take a multi-part test which consisted of numerical cumputations, basic IQ questions, as well as technical steam plant questions. After came the interview. The interview was conducted by two operating managers. The interview was long (about 2 hours) and was a "cookie cutter" interview where all the questions they asked you were already printed on the form. The first part was 20-30 yes or no questions geared to asking if you would be willing to do (blank). Then the next section was a lengthy interview based on your resume and past experiences to see if you can actually operate. Overall it wasn't very difficult.
