    I have been working at Southern California Edison as a contractor for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great company to work for. I have been working here since last 6 years...moved from east coast to take up this job. Good benefits, Great training program...in fact I never saw any company spending so much to train their employees, Awesome friends and great people I met over last 5 years.

    Cons

    No accountability what so ever. For example take the training...Managers sign up their work force for training in latest and greatest programs but will fail to check if those guys are actually contributing in those areas. So now you have guys queuing up for training to get free laptops and ipads from the training company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I will save my breath. Please QUIT.

    Pros

    I have had a great experience at Edison so far, the department I work for looks to their people for ideas on how to improve processes and procedures and does a good job with helping achieve a beneficial work/life balance.

    I have been working at Southern California Edison as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Office Moral and Culture is very supportive of each other. The benefits are great, if you are a full time employee. Great projects to collaborate with numerous government and private entities.

    Cons

    Managers lack integrity throughout each department. Everyone has been brought up to be "Babied" and fed with a Silver Spoon. Money is spent left and right, without any conscious decision to budget and truly look at cost reduction instead of cost increase. The ripple affect flowing to the rate payers. IT department has been outsourced, make routine IT service calls a hassle. Managers " Micro-manage" like they have nothing to do. Company is unwilling to embrace the future of the utility industry; ie solar.
